Where am I? (2014)

Inspired by Daniel Dennett’s philosophical experiment, Where am I? features a ‘speaking space’ created by the composer/coder Simon Katan that’s occupied/triggered by the dancer/performer Dan Watson.

The work was developed in collaboration with Simon Katan (code and sound) and inspired by Daniel Dennett’s philosophical musings on the location of consciousness. The text is an adaptation of Daniel Dennett’s essay ‘Where am I?’ (1978); John Cage’s 110 ideas; and questions from Susan Blackmore’s ‘Conversations on Consciousness’ (2005).

Commissioned by dancedigital and funded by the National Lottery through the Arts Council England.
