Body Activation

Day 3: Regeneration

With eightOS

eightOS host daily open workshops that explore the concepts of regeneration, adaptation, ecology and environment. Centering the body and sensorial experience, they emphasise specific reflexes and mechanisms, also applying eightOS sensors combined with AI-generated feedback to create unique and momentary soundscapes in space.

This workshop by eightOS focuses on the concept of regeneration. The physical exercises are designed to allow our bodies to regenerate from stress, as well as relieving pain and enabling a state of dynamic rest. Regenerative breathing is used as a tool to reset and restore our systems into their original shapes. Such regenerative techniques are explored in relation to the concepts from the previous day’s sessions (Day 1: Ecological Confluence; Day 2: Inclusive Exclusivity), redefining health as a dynamic homeostatic process. Limitations as imposed from the outside become a source of inspiration, enabling freedom of movement. eightOS motion sensors combined with AI-generated feedback create unique and momentary soundscapes in space.

eightOS is a body-mind operating system co-founded by Dmitry Paranyushkin and Koo Des. Their practice studies how physical movement can be used to better understand the dynamics of interaction and to then scale this understanding into other contexts. eightOS explore the ethical, scientific and aesthetic implications of this approach. Paranyushkin and Des presented their work at Gwangju Biennale (2021), Palais de Tokyo (2018) and other contexts.

Dmitry Paranyushkin is the founder of Nodus Labs, creator of InfraNodus network thinking tool and co-founder of eightOS. In his practice, he combines choreography, science and code to create human / machine software.

Koo Des is a co-founder of eightOS, musician and choreographer. In his practice, Koo Des links technology, sound and body to explore the interface between the natural and the artificial.
