Sheepwoman, 2009

Sheepwoman is the second live film collaboration from visual artist SUE-C and sound artist Laetitia Sonami.  Best known for her signature instrument the lady’s glove, Sonami combines text, music and found sound to create “performance novels” using a variety of sensors, motors, props and interactive software. Along with SUE-C’s synthesized cinema from photographs, drawings, hand-made papers, fabrics and miniature models, the duo combine their experiences to create unique and engaging hands-on performances.
