Abstract or Description:

Blood-Sugar Roulette (Eleanor Dare, 2012) is an augmented reality body art performance that unfolded within the confines of Sydenham Hill Wood, South London, in the late summer of 2012. The live performance script was defined and generated by software that dictated the movements and utterances of the protagonist, Krista, who was played by a software industry worker, Milica Janjić. The software developed by Eleanor Dare (referred to in this paper as “the author”) used biological data relating to her own blood-sugar levels and menstrual cycles to define core aspects of the performance. The core themes of the project are based on a true childhood event that occurred in the woods in 1976, when the author, aged eleven, was attacked and chased by an adult man. The author appears in this paper as an uncanny, not fully human, ‘depersonalized’ presence. The rationale for such an approach is embedded in this paper.
