Topological Media Lab

A series of three workshops directed towards exploring the lab's philosophical and physical engagement with various streams of research, techniques and technologies used in the “enchantment of environments and matter” and the expression of that research in the real world. Workshops feature (1) review of past works with movement and media; (2) physical demonstration and hands on exploration of techniques with teacher-artists in the painterly use of video, theatrical lighting and sound that change in response to gesture and movement; (3) the enchantment of matter and the modulation of image and sound in response to speech and prosody.
