Conspiracy Archives

Using Mixed Reality, an archive is created of the studio processes of
choreographer Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir in creating her 2017 performance
Conspiracy Ceremony: HYPERSONIC STATES (
This intense and powerful choreography was made from many hours in the
studio working with reflective somatic (bodily) practices. The deep and
meditative quality of the work makes it a fascinating archiving challenge:
how is it possible to archive the dynamic, moving meditation of the dancers?

Here you find archival design prototypes using 2 different Augmented Reality
browsers intended to convey some of the qualities of Guðjónsdóttir’s work.
We invite you to download, test, observe and experience, as you wish.

This is an example of research that has philosophical, technological
and performative qualities. It is a collaboration between Susan Kozel, 
Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir, Jeannette Ginslov, Keith Lim and
Daniel Spikol. It is artistic research from the Living Archives Research
Project at Malmö University.

Dancers: Johanna Chemnitz, Catherine Jodoin, Laura Sigemund, Marie Topp, Suet-Wan Tsang.
Composer: Peter Reyberg.
Photographer: Jeannette Ginslov.
