EMPAC in motion

Updated with another video Monday night

Sebastien has posted a few video clips from the performances at EMPAC this past weekend. After watching them, it's maybe a little easier to get a sense of how the performances spaces are being/could be used. Here's a clip from the studio space with the 360 degree screen:

Sebastien also has a photo set posted on Flickr.

More video clips -- including a really weird one -- embedded after the jump.

That did not do it for me, but hey, parking was free, right? :)

If you have 3D glasses (the cheap red/blue one), this should show up in 3D.

The best show for me this weekend. Too long, but quite fascinating and oppressing at times.

I have a video of Verdensteatret: Louder coming up in a few days, but I blew up my quota for uploading too many kittens videos. That show was too abstract, too loud, and wayyy too long anyway.

Woah! Thanks for the videos, Sebastien! That first one was incredible. Especially interesting to someone who works with 3D visualizations (me) :) I really hope I can get into that presentation this Friday.

... I think for me and many in the community, there is a desire to go back to this point in time, were neighborhoods were rounder, more complete and effervescent, and not so square that they can't take any unique pegs coming its way. There is a lot of energy in this neighborhood, and potential, not unlike other industrial zones in other cities, that have scene remarkable change towards diverse economies. Some do it well, others not so much, so I think it will be important to take those lessons learned from our peers to make sure it is done right. ...
