“Electronica love”, jam session performance in a few hours at Tears in Rain


At the beginning of electronic life
two techno-angels fall in love in cyberspace
they exploit into a magic kiss
and become new Adam and Eve.
Cyborgs, replicants, virtual souls…
all we are their children,
the children of an eternal kiss…

ELECTRONICA LOVE, Technoangel of conception II performance, Noke Yuitza.


Starring Moki Yuitza and Kreao Kujisawa as the technoangels, with Alexi Ayres sountraking this performance with live electronica music in a jam session performance concept by Noke Yuitza (me ;)).

ELECTRONICA LOVE is the second part of the Technoangel of Conception jam session performance we did in X-mas 2012 day at “Making of a replicant” (scenario 01 of Tears in Rain cyberart installation at LEA10). This is a live performance where you can become part of the show too!

You always love me more, miles away

I hear it in your voice, we’re miles away

You’re not afraid to tell me, miles away

I guess we’re at our best when we’re miles away…

Madonna, Miles Away.

Comic Girl, which was my first exposure in virtual worlds, is the cycle of love and breaking and running through seven phases: the illusion in the beginning to meet someone special, the passionate infatuation, the love more quiet and lodged, the doubt, the pain, the rupture of the heart and soul into mile pieces just after the break and the personal growth that means this process. The alternating phases often are like a roller coaster, not always linear, so the images were displayed as an immersive collage that flooded the virtual museum MKAC, where it was exposed from February to April 2009.

I captured as an experiment in documentary photography the seven stages of this cycle with the help of my webcam while holding “miles away” talks with who was then my boyfriend, being near and far at the same time.

Thus was focused from the female point of view, which did not stop the men who visited her feel also identified and reflected. Because love knows no gender.

Follow the white rabbit (Weekly Writing Challenge: From Mundane to Meaningful)



Today I was shocked down by something really curious.

I was struggling with WordPress.com to remain some changes fixed on my last entry when, suddenly, Firefox‘s window was gray and appeared a strange message with a countdown saying, in few words, that all my files were going to be destroyed and that I was fucked.

Imagine my face of terror: just in matter of few seconds all my stuff was going to disappear if I didn’t present battle against. But how?

Initiating infinite loop eschewal protocol. Self destruct in 3…2…1…

Time over: the counter reached the zero and the window was black. My heart was nearly a heart attack. I didn’t do any backups of my works in the last month. And then…

Wake up.

The Matrix has you, Noke.

Follow the white rabbit.

It has appeared the famous message of The Matrix!

What? “Follow the white rabbit”? I’ve turned arround quick to the door waiting absurdly to someone knocking at it, feeling a bit like Neo on the film.

–Cannot be possible…– I whispered as a mantra, praying not to fall into madness.

Then, in the screen of my computer, appeared another message warming me that the next time I should have to be more careful. No idea what they meant. Be careful with what? Or… with whom?

Yeah, I know how it sounds, really wear, but believe me: it is really true. Maybe it was a hacker’s attack, or a WordPress’s joke, or… maybe was a true call from The Matrix?… Does anyone have the same experience today?

If I see a white rabbit now, I think my rational mind succumb to Calderon de la Barca and his Life is a Dream.
