Pioneering media artist and Troika Ranch co-founder Mark Coniglio will discuss his current perspective on digitally enhanced performance: where we‘ve been, where we are now, and where we might be going. Specifically, he will contrast the dominant approach of the „digital reflection“ – where the media serves as a „mirror“ of the performers action – with the idea of a „digital intervention“ where systems or algorithms germane to digital technology are used to intervene and disturb the creative process.
Composer and media artist Mark Coniglio is recognized as a pioneering force in the field of interactive performance. He co-founded the media intensive dance group Troika Ranch in 1994, and later created Isadora – a software tool that provides deep interactive control over digital media. He recently received the World Technology Award, which recognized his influence and long-term legacy in art and technology.
