Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2011)
6 - 8 July 2011
This practice-led research project seeks to address the use of New Media in contemporary artistic productions in the field of Performance Art in relation to the current “consumption” of Media in everyday life contexts. The research will be carried out through the analysis of works and the practical exercise of performances that include pre-recorded image and / or live image, as well as video performances, covering theoretical aspects of Media and Visual Culture, in a critical study supported by ideas from existing discourses on the common “language” and “gestures” that are being produced by the current consumption and contact with the Media. The project will allow establishing points of contact between contemporary social and cultural perspectives on image and sound, and performative notions of space and time, considering the latter as two formally interrelated poles where issues of visuality, aurality, spectatorship, site-specificity and kinaesthetic qualities lay upon.
