Simulacrum is a performance by dance and theater company Winter Guests which tells the mythical-feeling life story of its main dancer – 77-year-old, Japanese-born Flamenco legen Shōji Kojima.
At Andy Cavatorta's studio we built projectors for the performance. Both machines contain tiny paper cuts in motion. The overlapping of many layers of paper and their movement generated by motor controlled mechanisms are responsible for creating a subtle landscape.
Videos of the performance will be uploaded soon.
