t h e b o d y y o u d r e a m o f I s y o u r o w n is a musical theater piece designed and composed by Trevor Van de Velde as part of his undergraduate honors thesis. The project incorporates elements of video installation, microprocessors, and live performance. The installation consists of 8 CRT televisions that display flashing images of static, close up body shots, and live footage. Near the end, the performer enters sparking a confrontation between themself and their digital selves. Inspired by the aesthetics of vaporwave, the body you dream of is your own seeks to explore our bodies in relation to technology.
