February 12, 8:30 pm: A collaborative performance by Aaron Miller; Monica Duncan, ACA Visiting Artist and Video Department faculty member; Neil Fried, Video Department faculty member; and Aimee Rydarowski, ACA Digital Video major.
Using the programs MAX/MSP/Jitter, the performers will create a feedback system to explore the mechanisms that map the creation and evolution of memory over time. The piece will combine projected image, sound, music, text, gesture and voice. The performance is sponsored by The Atlanta College of Art Video Department and EyeDrum.
