CARL HERNER ‘FLOSS FOREVER’

01/06/2020

Who owns the movements that our digital avatars make? Can dance movements be considered property?

The video installation ‘Floss Forever’ explores the choreography of our avatars. In the video game Fortnite, mini sequences are combined into tiny pieces of choreography, which are then used as emotes. Now that our movements are disconnected from our flesh, they belong to anyone – and the movements of others belong to us.
