Full body digitally printed morph suits are created by Amelia Zhang, Rhode Island School of Design in collaboration with Brian Kane, respected visual artist and fashion technologist from Boston. The suits are completely covered with custom digital photography of persons other than the dancers which simulates the “pixelated” effect of digital images, bringing a privacy enhanced digital version of a real person moving in the real world, and interacting with real space.

“Healing Tool” is a site-specific installation and visual realignment by media artist Brian Kane.
As part of his ongoing series “Art for Commuters”, this installation introduces a poetically enhanced digital image on a giant billboard in order to restore and realign the surrounding landscape.
Presented from June 28 to July 26 along interstate highways I-93 and I-95, this work translates Brian Kane’s ongoing effort to simulate photoshop effects in the real world.

MEDIALIVE brings together artists who explore forms of live audiovisual performance. This four-day festival presents a variety of approaches, discusses the technology and underlying theoretical, formal and conceptual considerations, and offers opportunities to explore live media tools first-hand.
The very notion of what it means for a work to be live, the interplay between modes of perception such as sight and sound, and the entanglement of human interaction with technology all come into focus as artists investigate the elasticity of form and content, bridging the analog and digital realms.
