Dilettante Window
May 2010
Athens, GA (USA)

Live interactive telematic performance. All 120 minutes of original material (including songs, comedy, juggling, storytelling) written, improvised, and performed live in a green room in a remote location. 

Interactive live video and sound transmission is sent through the Internet from a computer and video set-up in the green room and fed into a computer in the exhibition space which is running a software patch created in MAX/MSP/Jitter. The software applies live chroma key and maps projection into a lantern which is located in the remote exhibition space. I then interact with the audience remotely and can see and hear them in real-time through a hidden camera feed in the exhibition space which feeds back into a monitor in the green room.
