Movement Alphabet to debut at Tate Modern on 28 Oct

Movement Alphabet by Jan Lee and Tim Murray-Browne - interactive digital art installation with live one-on-one performance to create movement portraits from participants

I’m excited to announce that Movement Alphabet, my new work with Jan Lee, will debut at Tate Modern. Come join us on the evening of 28 October at the first in their Friday Lates series.

We’re then showing around London the following two weekends.

Movement Alphabet is a new interactive artwork combining 3D sensing technology with live one-to-one performance, created with dance artist Jan Lee. Immersed in a translucent pod, we invite you to have your ‘movement portrait’ taken. While a performer leads you on a journey exploring how you relate to your moving body, a 3D imaging system renders your movements into a visual portrait through a process akin to a calligraphy of the whole body.

We want to challenge the disembodiment of our digital lives and broadcast the personality of the moving body – the lifetime of experiences, choices and habits entwined into our every physical gestures.

Although there is plenty to see at the exhibition, bear in mind that participation is limited as it’s a one-on-one immersive experience. Sign-ups will be first come first serve, so consider coming to one of the quieter shows (the Friday at G.A.S. or earlier in the day at Watermans) if you’re super-keen to have your Movement Portrait taken.
