Evolution Of Dance (net performance)

I went towards the route of doing something in relation to dance, because it is something I love to do, but I also wanted to experiment with something I have never done before, so I did the evolution of dances from the 1920s to today.  Except that catch was that my hands became my feet.  The usage of my whole body became a limitation.  I could only utilize my hands.  That, itself was very difficult, because there are a lot of things I can do with my feet in dance versus my hands.  (fingers)  I posted it on Facebook, but still await responses…(Received some responses …positive)

Machinima Performance Art

Because I have chosen, currently, to steer towards the sims aspect of internet performance art, I have looked into other examples of it being displayed.  In this particular video, it is displaying a narrative that focuses on one particular character and their everyday actions.  In a way, this is a way of someone “escaping their own personal life.”  This is how I pictured Sims, because it is like you are creating a world that you is “perfect” with limitations to you.  It allows you to control everyone in the town, as if you are in the hierarchy position.  I am of course still brainstorming, but sims is something that I am looking into doing. (Possibly utilizing a movie or TV show as inspiration for my narrative)
