DOCUMENTARY-BISHI

The Grand WITCiH of Tech

BISHI - THE WILD WITCiH OF TECH follows London based multi-disciplinary artist, composer, performer and curator Bishi through a busy month of her life. A fast-paced mosaic of behind the scenes footage (live audio-visual performances and soundchecks, tech webcasts, and curation of the WITCiH Salon event at The Tate Modern) and footage of her previous tech collaborations (interactive sensor suit performance at Whitechapel Gallery, a performance composed from brain-wave data of the artist sleeping in collaboration with the Science Gallery, a composition for a virtual reality flying app) reveal Bishi’s artistic relationship with technology, and why she co-founded WITCiH (Women In Technology Creative industries Hub), a platform for multi-disciplinary women working in media and arts technology.
