Persona Non Gratis

What does it mean to set your persona free?

How does "let's get physical" relate to "being digital"?
Performances integrated with new media almost always relay an ambiguous relationship between the physical and digital. That ambiguity and the resulting disconnect and then connect between the performance and technology, or action and numbers, requires an active audience. With the blurring by the digital – the unknown and variable – the mapping is indistinct, the viewer left searching, the experience now a quest. Of course not all audiences search deeply; not everyone really experiences. Yet there is something compelling – that which is unexplained, the ghost in the machine.
