Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited is a Live
Performance Series choreographed by Web code.
In the performance of
wikipedia.org on December 11, 2008, five dancers, the audience, and the artist shaped together the course of the performance.
The source code of the website - its HTML tags - were interpreted live on stage into new dance movements, which were immediately translated into text-based
descriptions and then stored online into the (text-based) html-movement-library. This information was reused on stage as new instruction material. As the data performance
progressed, more html-movements were developed, stored and altered by the participants.
The inclusion of the html-movement-library on stage enabled a simultaneous exchange of instruction and performance, data and movement input and output
equally, and a continuous transfer between Web and body.
