Biography

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.
