The Bronze Key: Performing and Materialising a Cipher System - Casa Paganini, Genoa

Ruth Gibson (Artist), Bruno Martelli (Artist), Susan Kozel (Artist)

Research output: Practice-Based and Non-textual ResearchExhibition

Abstract

The Bronze Key is an art installation where data traces of bodily movement captured in 3D by digital systems are re-materialised into audio, bronze and print. The 3 objects of The Bronze Key represent the performance of the first 3 steps of the basic symmetrical cipher system: The Plaintext, The Key and The Ciphertext (or Cryptogram).
This project is an embodied and performative intervention in discourses and practices around data privacy and strategies for data obfuscation. It is the result of a collaborative and experimental design process involving dance, motion capture, 3D visualisations and VR.
