OPENING SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2 PM PDT
On LEA4: InterACT!, curated by L1Aura Loire/Lori Landay
Opening October 15, 2 pm PDT
Virtual art can invite, or even insist, that you interact with it. The artists in this exhibition cleverly and creatively make art out of interactions between data, objects, actions, and people within and beyond the virtual world in a stunning array of installations and experiences that stretch the possibilities of virtual art. Expect the unexpected, and click whenever you can. #interactLEA
2PM PDT: Interactive Performance @SENSES PLACES mixed reality dance-technology environment
Senses Places is a playful mixed reality performance environment for audience participation. An ongoing dance-technology collaboration generating whole body multimodal interfacings keen to a somatic cross-cultural dance approach. Senses Places stresses the awareness and integration of simultaneous sensory-perceptions, local-remote embodied connections, a place where participants and environments meet and engage kinesthetic/synesthetically.
What emerging embodied realities and cultural specific exchanges will surface in the multi-participant multifaceted involvement? Linked accumulatively or not to the suggested interfaces: Livestream, webcam, Wiimote©, and soon Kinect©, it will all depend on the participants’ interactive experience with their own and each other’s physical bodies, video mediations, avatar moves, and/or environmental changes.
