What connections are we missing in an always-on world? Interactive media artist Andrew Schneider (YOUARENOWHERE) and recurring collaborators create a performance cartography of the all-too-fleeting revelations, narratives, and emotional interactions flooding our bodies and brains every second of every day. Audiences discover a living map where a multiplicity of narratives come into view: a biker, oblivious of the car that will hit her, six blocks away; a couple kissing goodbye, then going on to lead different lives; flight patterns; Facebook usage; and countless other trajectories, patterns, possibilities, and futures. A breathtaking intersection of visceral physicality and visually stunning technology, NERVOUS/SYSTEM decodes the stories we miss each time we blink.
