A technology-influenced solo that has been animated, choreographed, and performed by the artist through the use of digital choreographic software. The movement for the piece has been designed through the use of 3D animation, and takes the deconstruction of modernist portraiture as its inspiration, presenting a digital "maquette" which is mimicked by the performer. As the moving human body is plotted in the built domain of technology, the performer expands the material from from digital software into a three-dimensional solo in real time, situating Bokaer's moving body in opposition to the animated double, often to surprising effect.
