"Cringe" To feel disgust or embarrassment and often to show this feeling by movement of your face or body. The main character in this piece fell into the darkness of addiction and depression. Rather then being embraced by family friends and church she was she was ignored and turned away from. Embarrassed to associate with her in fear it would reflect badly on there public perception. All making the main character spiral further away. The line "do I make you Cringe?" Is this character challenging these "perfect" people who choose to ignore her for their own benefit.

“Body-Go-Round” is a mixed reality (MR) performance where real existence and virtual existence that came out of the real one get blended together and interact with each other.
The piece created with haihm (electronic musician), Lee Byungyeob (architect) and Yunan Sam (creative technologist) to explore the art of today where technology has enabled limitless expressions, and experiment to find and expand new possibility.
