I have been fascinated by the “happenings” of networked performance, mobile media/ pervasive media/ locative activities/games of the last 15+ years and how they have changed our perception of performance.
I am excited by the sense of play and collaboration instilled in mobile and interactive media projects, in terms of performance and participation by the public, as well as the perceptual shift in the concept of “liveness”. Live performance events now are promoted primarily through viral and social media, eliciting much great public participation – very interesting times!
My media art and technology art and research interests and activities include:
* Wearables, Techno/Techno-Fashion and Sensory Experiences
* Mobile Media/Video, Locative & Participatory Performance
* Networked and Live Cinema Performance
* Experimental Video, Non-linear and Interactive Narrative
* Interactive Art and Immersive Video Installation
I have diverse visual and performing arts background working in video production, web design, new media development, DVD creation, and media art installation, owning, operating and curating performance media and visual arts exhibitions; creating pottery and ceramics; as well as in modern dance, with some drawing and photography.
I also have experience as the Executive Director/Curator of The Escape Artists Society in Vancouver, Canada, the Lead Curator, Conference Director and Co-Performance Art Curator for New Forms Festival in Vancouver, the editor-in-chief of an online pop-culture relationship support magazine – Tales of Slacker Bonding(2000-2003), in new media and web design /development, as well as documentary and online video and animation.
