Phase 4: Animating XITY Prototypes

November 2020 - Present

 

RQ4: How can the artists and performing bodies animate prototype apparatus (inspired by kinetic sculptures), in order to invoke a reflective space for us to (re)discover different facets of our unique city-inhabitant relationships?

Working towards the live presentation of XITY's artistic inquiry, conceptualiser Matthew Goh sought to fabricate several artistic prototypes for presentation. After several rounds of conceptual discussion, movement exploration and experimentation with materials drawn from Phase 2 explorations, the artistic team began to single out the following prototype apparatus to be animated by performing bodies for public sharing, which you will witness over the courseo f the 45-minute presentation:
