NSDOS & Dmitry Paranyushkin in conversation with Block Universe’s Louis O’Kelly
Electronic musician and dancer NSDOS and choreographer and network researcher Dmitry Paranyushkin discuss their ongoing collaboration EightOS, an open source body mind operating system, with Block Universe director Louise O’Kelly.
EightOS studies how we can use physical movement to better understand the dynamics of interaction, and how this can be applied to everyday life and work. Their work combines complex systems and network science, with technology, music, dance, martial arts and artistic practices.

Dmitry Paranyushkin is a co-founder of ∞OS. In his practice he combines choreography, physics, and network science, exploring how we can reinvent and explore ourselves through movement.
Paris-based NSDOS – aka Kirikoo Des – is a hybrid artist who works simultaneously on music, dance, digital art, and builds his own instruments. After studying dance, Des felt the need to create his own sound in order to explore movement.
Louise O’Kelly is an independent curator and arts professional based in London. In 2015 she founded Block Universe, London’s first performance art festival that takes place across major institutions and unique off-site spaces throughout the city annually.
