2012, application for iOS

ZYX is a performative app that guides users to carry out a series of movements, thus exposing them to a dissonant situation that is both virtual and physical: while it looks to outsiders merely as if the users are performing some kind of bizarre dance, the iDevice registers any correctly executed sequence of motions and rewards it with a signal tone.
