Jeremy Bailey Transhuman Dance Recital #1 Video Still, 6:27 min, 2007
From this point on I dedicate myself to finding better ways for humans to dance.
“I have transcended my human form. And that is what you see here today. I have freed myself from the imitative constraints of the natural world, and therefore I am now free”.
“Since the early noughties Bailey has ploughed a compelling, and often hilarious, road through the various developments of digital communications technologies. Ostensibly a satire on, and parody of, the practices and language of “new media,” the jocose surface of Bailey’s work hides an incisive exploration of the critical intersection between video, computing, performance, and the body.” – Morgan Quaintance, Rhizome
