presentation : The Social Body :
a multimédia installation
by Stéphanie Lagueux, in coproduction with Studio XX
The Social Body is a video and web installation in which surfers on the web, through their responses, affect a body modelled in fat. Demonstrating the powerful effect of ideas on matter by a process of “art-statistics”, this sensitizing device evokes the massive influence of the social body on each individual one.
launch of the fall program and workshops at STUDIO XX :
jake moore and Marie-Hellène Lemay
2:00 : Performances by artists from the MAX/msp workshops
Introduction by instructor Patrice Coulombe.
-Vera Ronkos :on the cello/max patch
accompanied by Patrice Coulombe on violon
Vera will play the cello that will be effected different ways by a patch that resulted from the Studio XX course Max/MSP.
followed by :
-The first live processed audio-visual performance of I8U,
Burden is an ongoing project inspired by the metamorphosis of the soul from Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra. The concept is that when art becomes subjectively stale, the artist feels burden. Once this Burden becomes too heavy, the paradigm shifts and the artist can create anew. Through MAX/msp and jitter, I8U explores this concept with a live performance using a patch that acts as a new instrument to show this metamorphosis.
I8U’s audio art can be qualified as “sound-sculpture.” It reveals powerful, opaque and complex sound environments where analog and digital meet. Her Web art can be said to follow a parallel path, incorporating both musical and visual elements. Her work continues to evolve as technologies enable her to create in new environments.
and throughout the day we will be streaming live :
Refresh: The first International Conference on Media Art Histories
from the Banff New media Institute
The presentations will be in both French and English.
Please pass on this invitation! Hope to see you there
