EMPAC from the Inside
Quite simply, there is no other venue with EMPAC’s technical infrastructure and programming potential anywhere else in the world.
Beyond the hundreds of public events that take place each year, the studios and venues are used almost continually for extended artistic and research residencies, giving birth to new works and technologies “behind closed doors.”
In this presentation, EMPAC’s Senior research engineer Eric Ameres will pull back the curtain on technological work performed in collaboration with artists, scientists, and the EMPAC production teams. Through a series of vignettes, anecdotes, interviews, and some “show and tell,” he’ll explore the ever-expanding repertoire of technology and give insight into where experimental media and the performing arts can meet in production and research, providing a rare glimpse behind the scenes from what the audience typically gets to experience.
