The performance piece Western Door/Power Trail has been selected for the 2014 Currents: Santa Fe International New Media Festival. Western Door/Power Trail is a collaboration between maker/performer Karen Schupp, assistant professor in the School of Film, Dance and Theatre, and interactive media composer Todd Ingalls, faculty in Arts, Media + Engineering. The work traces issues of sustainability and water rights in relationship to ideas about power and relocation. Through exploring and embodying these ideas, evocative sound and visual environments emerge anew in each improvised and interactive performance. Currents: Santa Fe International New Media Festival brings together the work of established, unrecognized and emerging new media artists, from New Mexico, the U.S. and the world, for events showcasing interactive and fine art video installations, multimedia performances and web-based art forms.
