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.

The live set will debut new interactive videos intermixed with never-before-seen works from the early-2000′s. A revival of content by Kane and long-time collaborator Gardner Post will provide viewers with a rich history of audio/visual explorations from the past 30-years of studio practice. The exhibition will also feature sound manipulations by DJ Darryl Hell of Brooklyn and original music by Nalepa (Los Angeles), Aerostatic (NYC), David Last (Boulder), David Fodel (Denver) and other genre-blending performers.
