REORIENT: Emerging Media
- Special Presentations
- Variable mins
This program is available for viewing from October 1, 2020 to October 31, 2020.
REORIENT highlights creative works in emerging media—virtual reality, video games, live streaming, and more. Although we are sheltering at home, the projects featured here bring us to outer space and the depths of the ocean, into digital worlds, and the minds of plants. This year’s program also showcases innovative responses to the constraints of creating and connecting amidst a global pandemic. From Zoom performances to interactive soundscapes, these projects offer compelling explorations of our relationship to community, memory, and the world(s) around us. — Sue Ding
