telematic art Tag

Festival Inmersiva – Mexico City

In a very exciting presentation, the Centro de Cultura Digital in Mexico City will be presenting the most ambitious version of telematic artwork Presence (2020, Erin Gee and Jen Kutler) to date.

December 4, 18:00 – 19:00 Central Time
Presence – Erin Gee & Jen Kutler (Quebec & USA)
Telematic sound performance

Presence is a telematic sound work where two networked performers (Gee and Kutler) send and receive each other’s heart, sweat and respiration data from Canada and the USA, which in turn triggers strong electronic pulses in devices across their skin in response to one another. The two performers listen to a whispered roleplay of verbal suggestions on the topic of impossible and imaginary touch as music is generated live from their embodied reactions in live feedback over the network.

Video and audio livestream will be received at CCD in Mexico City, where a subject will also receive the live electric pulse signals from Jen and Erin’s bodies on both arms.

The CCD Immersion Lab presents the third edition of the International Inmersiva Festival, a platform that actively involves, through participatory processes, both the artistic and research communities, as well as the agents of the immersive content and technologies industry, as well as to the general public, it will happen from November 27 to December 5, 2020, in a totally digital way.

Inmersiva 3 International Festival proposes that we think as a collective in a way to rewrite history. A narrative where we recover the essence of the investigation that explores the limits of a shared future. The collective writing of a text that we can read later, at any time, now, to build other realities. For this third broadcast, we have prepared a special program of virtual reality experiences, expanded books, listening sessions, sensory expeditions, workshops and conversations that unblock internal ports and deploy diverse networks to reinvent the act of living together.

Web Residency: Saw Video

I have been selected alongside three other residents for Saw Video’s Stay At Home Internet Residency.

I am especially pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with Jen Kutler on a new work for telematic sound and video during the course of this residency.  We are having an insane amount of fun creating feedback systems for music and biodata that integrate transcutaneous nerve stimulation over web sockets.

Over the course of five weeks (April 29th – May 29th), we will meet via zoom/hangouts to discuss readings, media, and art making. Individual web-based studio visits with national scholars, curators and artists will be had, and we will diffuse the artists’ works on May 28th. Please sign up for our newsletter here, and follow us on social media for more information on artists’ diffusion scheduling!
