The work was awarded in the competition Videokunst Forderpreis in Bremen in 1995. It was also carried out by the artist during his scholarship at the Banff Centre in Canada in 1997.
There is No Body is an interactive work based on a purpose-designed website. Wyrzykowski created a virtual character modelled on his own body. The visitors to the website were able to deform the virtual body and deprive it of its original form.
David EveryBody was inspired by the famous sculpture by Michelangelo. His “body” is not a “body” in the literal sense, but merely an encoded piece of information, which can be subject to reinterpretation akin to every other information. In this case the reinterpretation consists in the deformations introduced by the viewers.
