Description/Abstract

The presentation Overgrowth will combine elements of performance art, visual art, sound, and world-building. Overgrowth will invite the audience to participate and create an atmosphere in which they can immerse themselves in. By providing instruments of sound and a large, sprawling landscape drawing full of vivid imagery, Overgrowth will give the participants the opportunity to create unique sounds and experience what it is like to make the art. While there will be “music” in this performance, it is not a musical performance in nature, rather a performance utilizing musical instruments. This will be a sound exploration, an expression of emotion, and a non-verbal conversation between participants. Those who participate will react to the imagery and ultimately contribute to Overgrowth both as an idea and a performance. Collaborative creation is an unforgettable experience.

Note to Conference Administrators

If possible I would like to be placed in the poster session. Since this concept is built around the idea of audience participation I believe being set up with the poster session, where people can come and go freely, would better suit the nature of the art.
