seah (Chelsea Heikes)

seah (Chelsea Heikes) investigates relational techniques for posthuman articulations of the landscape within the structures of video, sound, and performance. Current “techno-natural-body” experiments involve wearing multiple cameras and contact mic’s on the body while physically interacting with the immediate environment. The movement language has evolved from decades long research in Butoh, Body Weather Laboratory, Noguchi Taiso, and Somatic Movement, as well as extended periods of time spent in remote wilderness areas. seah spends a great deal of time tracing waterways. The ongoing body of work titled “Fluvial Traces” follows rivers using feet, bike, or paddleboat and has included the Mae Nam Ping in Chiang Mai, Thailand as well as the Detroit River, and a river in Saas-Fee, Switzerland whose name is currently unknown. The larger arc of “Water Tracings” includes sites such as various waterways in San Francisco/Oakland, Venice, Italy, and the Finnish Archipelago. From September 2019-2020, seah will be working on the Danube River. The project is currently funded by the Bridge Guard Residency in Slovakia. Use of technology references the conundrum of being housed in a body that is already made to sense the world, while also playing host to myriad technologies created to “enhance” our ability to interface with it. seah’s particular scope and vision embraces a posthuman experience that simultaneously acknowledges both this growing desire for technological interface/stimulation AND the innate intelligence of materiality (raw matter), which includes human and nonhuman bodies. As of August 2019, seah will have received her MA from the European Graduate School in Philsophy, Art, and Critical Thought. Her MA thesis, “AnthropoThing”, is supervised by Elie During .
