BGSU Faculty Lillios and Mitchell Exhibit collaborative media installation at Techfest in India

Collaborative team Elainie Lillios (musical arts) and Bonnie Mitchell (digital arts) will exhibit an interactive audio/visual installation piece at Techfest 2012-13, 3-5 January 2013, in Mumbai, India. Now in its 15th year, Techfest is Asia’s largest Science and Technology festival, hosting over 92,000 attendees and reaching an international audience of scientists, technicians, and artists. Their project Inhabitants, explores the concept of influence, employing abstract 3D visuals and electroacoustic sound to metaphorically examine how our lives shift direction based on people with whom we come in contact. While abstract visuals surround the viewer, poetic text pours from the ceiling into mid air and participants must catch the “meaning” of the piece onto hand-held projection screens. Accompanying electroacoustic music intensifies and enhances the immersive experience. Elainie Lillios is Associate Professor of Composition, and Bonnie Mitchell is Professor of Digital Arts. They have been collaborating for over 10 years, creating abstract sonic/visual environments and animations.
