summary We are engaged in the process of exploiting gestural signs and pedestrian postures for the purpose of utilizing additional possibilities through the creation of a new Wearable Electronic Garment, as medium for inscription. Animated, cyber-performers move, deform, and re-arrange themselves, augmenting the dimensions of expressiveness/meaning during performance. The cognitive approach produced by thinking in/out of these bodies will similarly trigger changes in consciousness, affecting content and virtual story telling. Together we explore the interaction of text/gestures as movementóas in dance, human day- to-day postures, and our capacity to embody and generate meaning. Cyber dancers use gestures in order to cybernetically inscribe them. The composed gestures become the source of intention that relates to itself; its communicating environment becomes a visualization of the self-reflexivity of both the dance and consciousness. The dance is between worlds of humans, cyber-humans, and the source language as transforms into the domain of visible thought.
