PROOF OF EXISTENCE is a multimedia solo performance by Philip Nozuka currently in development. In this exploration Philip uses his original music and commentary to respond to YouTube videos as a way to explore the practice of engaging with social media content.
In transporting our often solo engagements with social media to a live and communal context, this work is asking: What needs to be seen right now? What is the quality of our attention when we are observing online? In a world where tech and media are often disembodied, individualist and inevitable, what can happen when we are digitally and physically present in a room together?
