EMP @ Creative City Project

This Friday night (October 25, 2013) I will be performing with EMP: Electronic Mobile Performance at the Creative City Project in downtown Orlando.

EMP: Electronic Mobile Performance is a collaborative, multimedia project involving faculty and students from Stetson’s Digital Arts program.  The group’s primary mission is to explore collaborative artistic production using new technologies, and to find new ways of presenting art outside of traditional venues.  EMP is directed and founded by Matt Roberts.

Vinegar Tom Video Projection Mapping

A collaboration between my Adv Interactivity class and the Theatre Program’s production of Vinegar Tom. For this production my students created their own video projection mapping software to project their videos onto 5 different location on the stage.

FIRE DREAMS

Description:
This project takes as its premise that when we walk through cities, our bodies enter the dreams of other people who’ve walked there. New media artist Matt Roberts and poet Terri Witek map the city by floating  various “dreamers” over interesting metropolitan spaces. City wanderers then follow this walkable dream map via an augmented reality phone app. Along the way, they are offered chances  to see a dream, hear a dream, text a dream of their own, send a photo, and perform various other  transmittable acts. These become part of the living dream map of the city.

How it works:
This project uses Layar a free augmented reality application for mobile devices. Participants can download the Layar app and follow the Fire Dreams map, which is designed as an international project adaptable to any urban space.
