Camouflage Choreography 迷彩编舞 Liam Young 利亚姆·杨 A music video is set in the Chinese owned and controlled Detroit Economic Zone (DEZ) and is shot with the same laser scanning technologies used by autonomous vehicles. The inhabitants of the near future city are recorded through the eyes of the robots that manage it. In a city that sees everything through a million sensors and camera networks an underground community adorn themselves in machine vision camouflage textiles woven on cnc mills from iridescent silks that scatter the light of scanning technologies to create glitches and distortions in the city wide data set.
In collaboration with world renowned choreographers a series of new dance movements have been developed that disguise the proportions of their bodies from body detection algorithms used by the city’s control networks. The music video shifts between live action video and machine vision visualizations of the way skeleton detection algorithms are trying to read and recognize the body. Music is provided for the project by iconic Detroit producers Underground Resistance. Fashion and music have always developed in response to existing power structures. The video is a prototype for a new sub cultural movement that may soon emerge in response to emerging smart city technologies.
