Alexandra Dementiva to Speak on Multimedia Theater and Performance at Alexandrinsky Theatre

On June 15, 2016 CYLAND’s Alexandra Dementiva will speak on her career as a new media artist, her experience with technology, and theater and performance work at the special event organized by the New Media Lab of the New Stage of Alexandrinsky Theatre.

Alexandra Dementieva’s main interests focus on social psychology and perception and their application in multimedia interactive installations. Her videowork integrates different elements including behavioral psychology, developing narrative using a ‘subjective camera’.

Alexandra Dementieva presents her work at CCW Digital Maker Week in London

Her interactive installation projects attempt to widen the mind’s potential for perception using different production materials: computers, video projections, soundtracks, slides, photography, etc. By making certain historical, cultural and political allusions, her exhibition locations create the frame within which the idea develops. The projects explore the spectator’s depths of perceptual experience and the interaction of the individual spectator with the exhibition as well as with other visitors. The subject of an installation or its production method becomes less important to her than the mind of the user. Thus the latter becomes the center of the project or the main actor in the performance.

The event starts 19:30, June 15 at the New Stage of Alexandrinsky Theatre . Join Facebook event for tickets and information.
