Daniel Bennett’s work shows an exploration of the human body interacting with modern technologies. Bennett experiments with ideas of invisibility present within today’s technologically automated world. By treating his body as a tool, Bennett practices a type of performance-research hybrid. He playfully engages with elements of the everyday, such as, moving walkways and electric sliding doors.
