Program Notes

This performance is part of a practice-based PhD that comprises embodied and choreographic techniques to inform the development of methods and tools for designing of web-interfaces — driven by transparency and legibility. Joana Chicau will present early prototypes such as custom interfaces and plug-ins that aim at responding to the opaque algorithmic models embedded in pervasive web interfaces. For instance, by exposing user-tracking and phenomena such as ‘dark patterns’ through live performance. She will interweave live coding using JavaScript commands on the web console and custom browser tools with voice narration following a choreographic perspective.
