SINGULARITY


Collaborative Multi-Media Performance. 2012.

I co-designed and built the set with the multidisciplinary builder Brock Nummerdor.

A collaboration among the students, faculty, and staff in the Expressive Arts department at Western New Mexico University, Singularity is a multi-media performance based on Ray Kurzweil's The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology. 

I co-designed and co-built the steel framed set, as well as was the visual coordinator for the production. During the performance, I did live video mixing on the set's five screens using Resolume VJ software. Actors interacted with the projections and were able to access several different levels using the various platforms.  

The performance was shown at the ISEA: Machine Wilderness Conference in Albuquerque in April of 2012, as well as at the WNMU theater. Cilck below to view and download the 2012 ISEA conference guide to see the project (page 48 ) in the context for which it was written and developed.

The screens were separately activated using Resolume software, which offers effects controls in a realtime, improvisational environment.
