The Artist as Magician - Colorwheel
(Katren Wood - Australia, James Dalton - Australia)

The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space is the largest event of its kind in the world - presenting contemporary work in a variety of performance design disciplines and genres - costume, stage, light, sound design, and theatre architecture for dance, opera, drama, site specific, multi-media performances, and performance art, etc.
Influencing perception, opinions, and the state of mind of the audience is the goal of an artist. Just like a magician he has all kinds of methodes to ravish and mesmerize. Influencing the behaviour of the audience and also of the actors- is the new realm of the artist who works from the perspective of interaction design. What concept and methods are useful for this kind of artist is the central question we will explore in this workshop. Topics like creating virtual actors, implementing augmented reality on stage, speaking film language and theatre language at the same time will be researched.

The workshop ''The Artist as Magician'' by ''The Blue Noise Department'' was given at DAMU on june 22, 23 2011.

Participants exploring interactive environments that they filled with sound and image during the workshop. Sound and image is triggered by a motion-tracking system developed by The Blue Noise Department. The motion-tracking system was partially developted during the workshop to fit the needs of the participants. We will continue perfecting the system with what we learned from the participants.
