Dorothy H. Hirshon Residence: Toni Dove Retrospective and Current Work

The Auditorium, Room A106, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall
General Public 

Hirshon Artist in Residence Toni Dove will present a retrospective of her work and preview her current project in development.

Since the early 1990s, Dove has produced unique and highly imaginative embodied hybrids of film, installation art and experimental theater. Exploring motion sensing and robotics in live mix cinema events, performers and participants in her work dynamically interact with unfolding narratives. Dove’s latest project, Lucid Possession, is a live cinema performance mixed and animated in real-time using cutting-edge motion-sensing technologies to perform complex layers of media. It presents a contemporary ghost story, or a poetic musing on noise management, and self-perception and fame across virtual and real social spaces. A reception with the artist will follow.

Toni Dove is currently serving as the 2014-2015 Dorothy H. Hirshon "Director in Residence" in the School of Media Studies at The New School.

Sponsored by The School of Media Studies

Please note that a reception with the artist will follow at the Lang Cafe (65 West 11th Street) starting at 8:00 p.m.
