VOSIS / Ryan McGee / in the El Museo Cultural theater.
VOSIS is an interactive image sonication interface that creates complex wavetables. Using a multi-touch screen to play image regions of unique frequency content rather than a linear scale of frequencies, it becomes a unique performance tool for experimental and visual music.
We / Colton White / in the El Museo Cultural exhibition space.
“We” is an interactive performance that deals with confrontation. Confrontation of the self and of the unknown. Allowing for two individuals to have an intimate moment through touch and reflection. This piece allows for someone to experience comforting him or her through illusion.

Burnish is a stand-alone art object and interactive performance piece. Inspired by elements of fire, flooding, and the desire to cleanse the heart.
