*The future of communication – alienation – downstage.
*Parametrical sound and movement manipulation of the projected images using custom-developped interfaces.
*Inputs do not necessarily lead to expected outputs.
*Causes do not have predetermined consequences.
*No limits No borders.
?'Never have I found the limits of the photographic potential. Every horizon, upon being reached, reveals another beckoning in the distance. As Always, I am on the threshold'.
W.Eugene Smith

Based on this concepts the project UNSURROUNDED started as a solo performance ongoing research project where sound, movement, visuals & words intercollide. Each presentation is different with new inputs on the material layers and with new interactions that can extent to collaborations with other performers, musicians, visual artists and all kind of art houses and individuals (animals included).

Sometimes as in Unsurrounded III which was an interactive multi-media performance with active audience participation. The term audience was viewed in a wide sense including the www logged in online/mobile community. A challenge for a filmmaker, performer, musician to work inside the new media, summoning her passions and interests and relocating them into a whole new dimension.

Viewing it inside a broad definition of 'net art'
Crosspolinated New media
new path of conceptual inquiry
(phenomenological perception
identity modulation
telepresence or)
subculture participation
intimacy inside the worldwide web
A real time/space performance
offline and online
disrupting disorienting
the audience and the viewer
of what it could become
an ongoing performance.
