Gibson / Martelli

British electronic arts duo Gibson / Martelli make live simulations using performance capture, computer generated models and an array of technologies including Virtual Reality. Artworks of infinite duration are built within game engines where surround sound heightens the sense of immersion. Playfully addressing the position of the self, the artists examine ideas of player, performer and visitor – intertwining familiar tropes of videogames and art traditions of figure & landscape. Ruth is the Creative Fellow at C-DaRE, Centre for Dance Research, Coventry University and is a certified teacher in Skinner Releasing Technique which underpins her practice.
