"Synthesis Responsive Environments / Time Out"

We invite you to come to iStage atelier to immerse yourself in a rich media environment, talk with Synthesis’ researchers and artists, or just relax in our playful, poetic atmosphere.  
 

11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
"Synthesis Open Atelier: Serra Vegetal Life and Other Scenarios"

Speakers: Oana Suteu, Todd Ingalls, Sha Xin Wei and Synthesis researchers

Hosted artist researchers working in open atelier at Synthesis will be available to talk with visitors in the iStage. This includes media artist and researcher Todd Ingalls, Montreal filmmaker and installation artist Oana Suteu, media artist and theorist Sha Xin Wei, and other experimentalists.

The Synthesis atelier creates instruments for gesturally responsive time-based media along with techniques for irreal play. We host streams of inquiry that course transversally across experimental arts, non-theatrical performance and speculative engineering. Current streams include vegetal life (Serra plant movement), experiential climate, irreal acoustic/lighting ecologies, multi-scale rhythmanalysis and ontogenesis.

"Responsive Environments Roundtable"

Speakers: Sha Xin Wei, Tom Lamarre, Todd Ingalls, Oana Khintirian, Stacey Moran and guests 

How can we "write" or "compose" in a responsive environment, a physical space thickened by media that co-articulates with unscripted activity? What speculative events can one create and what questions, propositions can be set in play?
