Shadows: introduction (1993) by Sylvia Penally

This piece is intended for live performance, although it is presented here as a video. This version is a tape of a performance on March 13, 1993, in Roussel Hall on the campus of Loyola University, New Orleans. Artistically, the goal is to represent the multiple personalities that reside within an individual, the apparent conflict between the “yin” and the “yang,” and the final resolution of all these apparently conflicting elements into a richly facted individual. The work uses the Mandala software, which allows the image of a real-time performer to be translated into digital information and to become an active part of the program, thus, the audience sees both the flesh-and-blood performers, and, at the same time, sees their images projected onto a large video screen. The performers’ images appear as silhouettes, stencilled from cycling graphics.
