Marcel·li Antunez - Transpermia 2003

A mechatronic conference presenting the Dedalus project and its micro performances at zero gravity as well as the Transpermia theory.

Marcel·li Antunez - POL 2002

A mechatronic story for five robots, a panoramic screen and two performers wearing dreskeletons (exoskeletal body interfaces)

POL is a story told by means of a mechatronic performance. It is an ironic and poetic fable for all ages, a scenic mutation resulting from the meshing of machines, images, sounds and performers.

Marcel.lí Antúnez Roca is well-known in the international art scene for his mechanotronic performances and robotic installations. In the nineties his avantgarde mechatronic performances combined such elements as Bodybots (body-controlled robots), Systematugy (interactive narration with computers) and Dresskeleton (the exoskeleton body interface).

The themes explored in his work include: the use of biological materials in robotics, as in JoAn l’home de carn (1992); telematic control on the part of a spectator of an alien body in the performance EPIZOO (1994); the expansion of body movements with dresskeletons (exoskeletical interfaces) sed in the performances AFASIA (1998) and POL (2002); involuntary choreography with the bodybot REQUIEM (1999); and microbiological ansformations in the installations RINODIGESTIO (1987) and AGAR (1999). He is currently working on the spatial and utopian artwork TRANSPERMIA.
