The Net and the Self
"The Net and the Self is an interactive music and dance installation mirroring our networked society.
The audience enter in a room illuminated by UV blacklights where dancers and musicians interact through an amplified harp that has its strings connected with fluorescent fishing lines attached to the walls.
The installation is not a static, fixed piece of artwork, rather a constantly evolving experience that includes both the artists and the audience. In this way, we question the existing hierarchical dynamic, and what is art in general.
The artists that create this installation are : Pierre Emmanuel Mariaca (MFA3 in Composition and experimental sounds practices), Herry Kim (MFA1 in Arts), Dongpu Ling (MFA1 in Arts and technology), Brian Griffith (MFA1 in Composition and experimental sounds practices), Gabe Le Neveu (BFA1 in Composition and experimental sounds practices), Andrea Soto (BFA1 in Dance), Yunju Cho (BFA1 in Dance), Lena Martin (BFA1 in Dance) Anne LeBaron, and Ruoyi Shi (MFA1 in Arts).

Utilizing a variety of sensor types, […]
Why are you making this piece? Since the beginning of the epidemic, I have followed the notice from the local authority to stay at home and stay alive. Since the food in my house has become thinner recently, I have to go out to hunt. Firstly, I found that I was completely expired, so I cut my hair. I […]
“Still Growing” is a short solo created in the restrictions of my home surrounded around a stool. It is a study on time and growth, striving to show that we are “still growing” in this time of quarantine.
Originally located on the back wall of the MOD, IRIS was a 3-dimensional automated aperture that opened to about 17-ft in diameter to reveal a lit cyclorama in its opening. For the Virtual Campus, we will be modeling the iris in 3D software, then using lighting software to create various lighting looks. Christian Mejia (MFA2, […]

This art performance is about social justice in the 21st century, bringing to light the reality that our society now lives with police brutality. Many of my family members have had to have the “police” talk, “hoodie” talk, or “walking-out-late-at-night” talk with their teenagers, warning them that because of the color of their skin they […]
