As part of the Berkeley Art Museum’s L@TE: Friday Nights, TDPS’ own Lisa Wymore directs a performance involving layered real-time and pre-recorded video captured from across BAM/PFA and mixed live! Music by Ryan Smith. otherworld (machine) brings together multiple sites of production and multiplicities of bodies to create layered image collages, inspired by Kurt Schwitters’s Merzbau. Real-time video files captured at two different sites within the building are layered and edited simultaneously, incorporating video effects. The performers are both live and prerecorded, the seen objects are both virtually produced and real. The project is a collaboration among Lisa Wymore (UC Berkeley), Sheldon Smith (Mills College), John Crawford (UC Irvine), and Ryan Ross Smith (Mills College). Programmed by Kamau Patton.
