The Fly is made from combining several different species. In this work all flesh is equal; human limbs, offcuts of meat, sea life organs, miscellaneous viscera. The audience is invited to fly over this churning landscape. By experimenting with the movement of their limbs, participants learn to navigate their avatar across the surface, triggering sounds and motions within the sensual swamp. This piece has been constructed to work with multiple users - you can fly solo or in groups.
The Fly was originally commissioned as part of Deptford X and shown upstairs in a local pub. Sound design was done by Patricia Afari.
