Event Description

On through out the Spark Festival

Ectoplasmic Scream is an interactive multi-media art installation that uses a video game interface to manifest an otherworldly substance in another dimension. Employing a variety of motion capture and digital imaging techniques, gallery participants are able to manifest an ectoplasm inspired substance in a virtual environment. An onscreen avatar mimics participant’s face and mouth actions to generate the ectoplasmic scream. This relationship between the viewer and the screen explores the human potential to be active and present in more than one dimension, challenging popular ideas of reality, the virtual, and presence in a digitally mediated world.

Doug Jarvis is an artist/curator living in Victoria, BC. He is a founding member of both the avatar performance art group Second Front and the Noxious Sector art collective. He recently co-directed the Digital Art Weeks 2011 OFF LABEL Festival in Victoria, BC and holds an MFA from the University of Guelph. http://dougjarvis.ca/

G++ is the first window-front art gallery in Victoria to focus exclusively on interactive multimedia. The space has been donated by Limbic Media, a company that specializes in real-time interactive multimedia control technologies for use in entertainment markets, education, research, and the fine arts. http://www.limbicmedia.ca/

Doug Jarvis would like to thank the G++ Interactive Media Gallery and Limbic Media for the opportunity to collaborate with Paul Reimer and Manjinder Benning to create the interface and virtual manifestation of Ectoplasmic Scream.

The Belfry would like to thank Doug and Limbic Media for their assistance in mounting this installation during SPARK.
