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).

Three kinetic sculptures explore relationships between circularity/co-opting/recycling and linearity/polarization/binary-ness, and how personal agency or positionality intersects with these linked mechanics. (They’re NOT “voting machines;” they reflect the operation of many large systems, frameworks and conversations, e.g., the relationship between the DIY ethos and capitalism, between the political far left and far right, and among nested […]

Hyperreal Gesstures This project is a reflection of the gestures we perform on a routine basis in order to interact (as the trigger and the data input) with networked devices such as smartphones and laptops. These gestures are abstracted/flattened in the design process and transformed into online behaviors. This habit-formation process only takes us a […]
