In addition, this project was produced (in part) at Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center through the Artist-In-Residence Program and is supported by individual donors.
About the show
A curtain is pulled back and a woman is thrust through The Color Room. As the lights intensify, she slowly removes a small candy from her mouth, which she drops into a jar filled with similar candies ... a disembodied voice commands "sit down please" ... As cryptic signals are transmitted, fragments of text and spectral images meld, collide and shimmer. Part video installation, interactive media lab and live performance, Keep Your Electric Eye On Me conjures notions of transformation, dual realities, hysteria and the desire for the unattainable.
