"The New Genres Collective is proposing a multimedia performance with light, shadow, video projection, and sound on the theme of "home". For our performance, we will be inside an inflatable dome. Within the dome the collective will engage in a ‘media jam’. This is a framework the collective often works with: we choose a theme, gather footage, create instruments and audio, construct an installation/performance space, then we perform.
The concept of the inflatable dome is a reference to our place of origin, Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design. The geodesic dome is a symbol of the school and its roots in communal experimentation (i.e.- "Drop City"). This inflatable will be modeled off that iconic image. Thematically, we will be using "home" as inspiration for content. The inflatable will operate as an extension of the school and become a place to incubate creative concepts and thought through experimental performance."
