Performance:

Andrew SchneiderThe salon features a performance by Andrew Schneider and his Experimental Devices for Performance. These wearable and handheld devices are used for media interaction in experimental performance. Being performer oriented, the devices make the connection between media and performer inseparable. The performer affects the media through the devices and the devices affect the performer. Together, they become the performance.
