TOPOS

Topos is a long-term WIP and a game art performance combining a two-channel video projection of artist-built game spaces. The piece examines the cultural shift from the mechanized, topographic 20th century to the topological experience of the digital era through virtual, kinetic portraits. Subjects will include modernist artists concerned with time and movement such as F.T. Marinetti, Claude Cahun, Scott Joplin and others. Navigating custom game spaces in real time, the performers will explore the grand shift from the physical to the virtual.

foci + loci evolved through a fascination with the malleability of virtual space paired with an interest in electroacoustic improvisation leading the duo (Chris Burke and Tamara Yadao) to design spaces that could be “played” as instruments. foci + loci received a NYSCA grant for 2013 to develop their full scale game art performance installation ‘Bal(l)ade’. Tamara received an American Composers' Forum grant in 2015 commissioning the music for foci + loci's "Another Kind of Spiral" which premiered at Cluster Festival in Winnipeg with a performance at Centre Georges Pompidou following soon after. Other performances and exhibits include GAME VIDEO/ART. A SURVEY an official exhibition of the 21st Triennale of Milan, Vector Festival in Toronto, Babycastles, The Stone, and Joe's Pub in NYC.
