Uncanny Valley

Uncanny valley is the name of the installation by Laura Mannelli bridging interactive media, sonic performance and live choreography. The concept of the uncanny valley effect describes the provoked feelings of revulsion and rejection of imperfect humanoid looking objects. In the installation, a dancer interacts with her imperfectly projected digital alter-ego. A musician performs at the same time, spatializing and moving sounds through space creating an impressive and disquieting atmosphere. Uncanny Valley was presented at Multiplica Festival 2019, Rotondes, Luxembourg.
