{Re}HAPPENING 2018

JOHN CAGE ROOM – PRESENTED BY THE MEDIA ARTS PROJECT + REVOLVE / MAKE NOISE

Participating Artists: Frank Meadows, Elisa Fairies, Thom Staton, Daniel Levin, Marcyanne Hannemann, Meg Mulhearn, Coco Nuco, Constance Humphries, Cilla Vee, Bernard Welt, and Jack Callahan.

LOCATION: Camp Rockmont NORTH LODGE LOBBY (MAP #10)

The Media Arts Project + Revolve, in conjunction with BMCM+AC, present a reactive multimedia installation in the John Cage room scored by multiple movements that feature live coding, sound, performance and visuals. Isolated performers will respond to streams of dynamic visual cues, the sequence and content of which will be determined by chance operations selected by custom software. The room itself will act as a site of negotiation — between the performers, and between the performers and audience. The system created will become a nexus for virtual collaboration, coincidental encounters, prompted actions and converging trans-disciplinary activities. Organized and conceived by a curatorial collaboration between Victoria Bradbury, Carmelo Pampillonio, Alec Sturgis, Colby Caldwell, and Walker Farrell.
