This work by Ricardo Barreto and Paula Perissinotto offers us a split, fragmented, impossible dance in a divided, multiplied space. Cyberdance consists in the combination and re-combination of elements which represent the different parts of the human body. A mannequin was photographed as a model in different positions. These images were later converted into animated form, allowing the users to combine them in different ways, as well as link them to the different dance terms, the names of the postures and classical ballet positions. On a page divided into frames containing fragments of the mannequin, we can see her head, legs, torso and arms revolve, while simultaneously allowing us to subdivide each frame by clicking on it, each frame composing an aberrant doll whose fragments dance, silently, independent of each other. There is no music or rhythm, neither is there any space. It is a digital dance, a dance in which time and space have been transformed into a platform.
