Rotator (c) Humatic & V3, 2020
The Rotator follows the concepts of Humatic's work series H_PR (Humatic Re-Performance), where dance and music performance meet machine art and create idiosyncratic immediacy between viewer and videoperformance. In this case a rather compact medium has been chosen, which can be installed with less effort and be produced in small series than the earlier H_RP triptychs MNM, Mindbox or the current pole dance project VIII. The rotating drums of a ''Bally Wullf'' slot machine show microfilms of a sophisticated dance performance looped in strobe flipbook cinema format.

The work is related to ''F*** Format''. The photo series and videos establish a connection between paper format, screen frame and body. A thematic variation emerges in the context of the politically explosive ''Nordstream'' gas pipeline. The Rotator invites the viewer to purchase a print of ''F...ing Format'' through gambling.
