Studies in the Transverse Articulations of the Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Complex (or, the Super Pelvomatic 5000)

"Studies in the Transverse Articulations of the Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Complex (or, the Super Pelvotron 5000)" is an intentionally absurd exploration of human-computer interactions, using physical humor to charm people into delightfully new ways of relating to both computers and each other.

"Studies in the Transverse Articulations of the Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Complex (or, the Super Pelvotron 5000)" is based on arcade video games but requires the player to wear a controller that translates their hip movements into the on-screen game movements. As the main game movements are forward, back, and side-to-side, the users are required to gyrate and make pelvic thrusts to advance through the game. These movements are intentionally ridiculous, using humor to break through the routine ways of interacting with both computers and each other.
