Synchronized three channel audio/HD video installation/13 minute run time (looping)
In Heterotopias, performers create surrogate identities realized through simple props and costumes, and then rendered in a virtual gamescape. Traveling through physical and virtual realities and domestic and mythical scenarios, the characters explore the performance of the self in the digital era.
Heterotopias was commissioned the Berkeley Art Museum's MATRIX program. It was also supported by the Investing in Artists Grant from the Center for Cultural Innovation.
This excerpt is a mock-up of a large-scale, multi-channel video installation.
