Bowie Multimedia & Performance Festival

2010 Multimedia Performance Festival at Bowie

by on Jan.08, 2010, under Multimedia Fest

We’re planning an annual event at Bowie High School to showcase the best work of multimedia students. Everyone is invited to participate. We will start advertising online and around campus soon. The festival will take place on May 21st in F-Hall during both lunch periods. It’s time to start planning an event that will impress everyone who visits. There will be art, poetry performances, music, interactive installations, short films, and animations from the best at Bowie.


Here’s a list of additional ideas so far.

Terrarium – Interactive Installation from Theo Watson on Vimeo.

Above is an example of an animated installation. We could make a similar collaboration as a class!

Terrarium is an interactive, sonic ecosystem whose source of energy comes from the sounds people make interacting with the work. The sounds of the participants voices come into the world via the sound vents. These sounds are too raw for the environment so they are sucked in by the Seed Spitters who process the sounds to more manageable particles which are then expelled into the environment. These processed sound particles help spawn and sustain life within the ecosystem, providing food for the fish in the water and creating frequency sensitive plants on the land. The voice also triggers changes to the Pattern Bush who adapts the shapes of its leaves to the sounds it hears.

We want good ideas especially for collaborations. Please add your ideas below.
