Skyped Performance Art
Check out this interesting project Low Lives which was a series of live, internet transmitted performances from all over the world: http://lowlives.net/home/
We will look more at this project in class.
Performing Via Skype
Create an original performance work to be transmitted locally via Skype, imagining that you are performing for an audience that is not present in your immediate space.
Each of you have the Project NV Gallery for 5-10 minutes. This should include any set-up or arranging of the room, your lighting, props or laptop. You can control the POV of the Skyping laptop as long as you do so carefully (I will provide the laptop with camera and Skype connection). The resulting video image of you performing your work will be watched by the class in CFA 207 as projected on the big screen. We will be recording these for possible future playback (it will be very beneficial to each of you to watch yourself perform!), while as well providing video documentation to be included on your portfolio blog.
1) Tuesday, November 1st: Complete and conduct research surrounding the reading "What is Performance" first, do this before and as you are conceptualizing your concept.
2) Thursday, November 3rd: Lab day - time to work on further developing your concept, feel free to try any dry run set-ups in Project NV. Rehearse, or not, depending on your approach to the project. If I were doing this I would be very interested to see what you look like via skype, testing pov, lighting, sound, etc. We will make sure that the Project NV Gallery is open thru the weekend for your to come in a test at will.
3) Tuesday/Thursday November 8th and 10th. PERFORMANCES DUE! We will discuss scheduling on the 3rd.
