|Joan Karlen's Interaction Design Installation to be Presented at Living Tulsa Arts|
October 4-6 Joan Karlen will be presenting her Interaction Design Installation at Living Arts Tulsa during the Oklahoma Dance Film Festival. The work was developed at The Banff Centre, Film & Media during Karlen's fall 2012 sabbatical.
Choreographer and media artist Joan Karlen’s interaction design installation juxtaposes large-scale public projection with private, reflective content to create a meditation on nature, the elements and generation. 19 video scenes are composed to unfold and layer quietly over time, revealing a new array of stories altered by audience participation. Users interact with a Kinect Xbox to make editing decisions in real time – drawing cursive and block text, changing video dimension and generating animated leaves from their fingertips. During each 16-minute installation cycle the video scenes appear in a new randomized order; the work is never the same twice.
