Rendering is a performance exploring an imaginative figure produced by today’s
technologically mediated world. A human figure is transformed into an “object that feels”. This “feeling object” attempts to undo the dualisms such as subject and object, material and immaterial and living and nonliving.
Rendering is influenced by present online music cultures. In online platforms, users share feelings and represent emotions anonymously towards the tracks they listen to. Rendering considers such platforms as virtual utopian spaces in which users can connect to each other in an abstract level. Rendering embodies the objectified emotions generated by these spaces.
