Kaoru Okumura: Beyond the Metaphors – Butoh x DeepDream
Butoh dancer Kaoru Okumura, with Google Deep Dream researchers Mike Tyka, Kenric McDowell, Blaise Aguera y Arcas, and Steadicam M1 operator Robin Buerki, combine the intensity of Butoh with the strange, wonderful nature of the DeepDream algorithm. DeepDream and Butoh are both human reactions to changing technological circumstances. But they sit in uneasy harmony, with the minimalist, organic, and very human dance form finding an odd partner in the nonlinear hallucinations of machines.
