Persistence of Illusion

The investigation focuses on how the creation of live visual content can be 
achieved through the virtual and physical spatial relationships within the 
performance and how the performer then interacts with these relationships
 through bodily response and navigation. This is achieved through combining the 
successes of contemporary visual performances, the interaction techniques used in 
pre-cinema instrumentation and the use of projection mapping as a means of visually 
addressing the entire space of the performance.
