Held April 23-25, the Intermedia Festival was a unique series of concerts and events that presented futuristic modes of live performance in the telematic and media arts. Telematic art synthesizes live traditional performing arts with computers, media and telecommunications. The Intermedia Festival featured artists, musicians, videographers, dancers, actors and writers from throughout North America and Europe. While more than 100 performers traveled to Indianapolis, others participated through the Internet interactively with collaborators at the festival. Live drama, dance, music, visual arts, videography, scientific presentation, commentary, and discussion synthesized to form a provocative and compelling set of experiences.
OverviewThe purpose of the project is to develop IT software solutions related to the production of Auksulaq, a telematic opera designed to be performed in real time at multiple locations across the globe. Auksulaq will integrate artistic expression, scientific information and social/political commentary to present an interactive, multi-dimensional experience that embodies relevant complex cultural and empirical processes. Venues for the premiere performance include IUPUI, University of Virginia, University of Alaska, and venues TBA in New York City and Oslo, Norway.
