[ISEA2012] Artist Talk: Ellen Pearlman – MYTHS OF CREATION AND DESTRUCTION

Artist Statement

Atoms are never still. They move and dance in levels of electrons shells negotiated by subatomic particles. Native American Kachina dancers move too, talking to unseen deities negotiated by spirit. I proposed a visual, motion and auditory performance installation on Myths of Creation and Destruction working with students and faculty at the IAIA Institute, as well as scientists to make a piece premiered at IAIA’s Digital Dome with images output on the EMMU-Ruidoso Gateway System of Video Teleconferencing. Also discussed will be more recent developments using the Kinect, the Emotive Cap, NeuroSky, Makerbot and others.
