See yourself as you never have before – and be both a member of the audience and an element of a unique experimental performance. SCHNITT – aka Italian audiovisual artists Marco Monfardini and Amelie Duchow – worked with technical engineer and performer Gianluca Sibaldi to develop a process to scan their audience members, using the resultant imagery to produce visuals that they  then manipulate and transform live – part Rorschach test, part commentary on surveillance culture. Waves of light scan and rescan viewers, and from each individual the scanner constructs a unique sonic and visual pattern that determines how SCANAUDIENCE  plays out. As the audience sees itself reflected, and understands that they can change their audiovisual signature through their own movements, the performance builds a collaborative feedback between artist and performer.
