"My case study will focus on a group
of live media performances called The Sudwestern Saga,
by the Portuguese artist Edgar Pêra, that does not fit completely
within traditional performance genres nor in new media genres (like
VJ-ing and electronic audio-visual performances). The performance
(defined by the artist as ‘cine-concert’) makes use
of several media and languages
(cinema, theatre, digital video, music), but it is the ‘theaterical
hypermedium’ that determines the general narrative structure
and the function of new media inside it."
"I am interested in exploring the
connections established by users of digital media on various levels;
individuals, communities and cultures, to see if there is an underlying
Ideology that connects them and their separately evolving ideas
about art, technology and the contemporary world at large. Given
the broadness of these topics, the following pages will most likely
only scratch the surface of the proposed endeavor."

enigma, the idea that the face’s signification hides (even
if from time to time it does surface) something enigmatic, mysterious,
paradoxical in its literal meaning: something that passes by our

is more to it than that and, perhaps, something more interesting."
"The aim of this article is to analyse
how musical language is involved in all aspects of the process of
projecting and manipulating live images ..."
"Why on earth should the written
combination of the noble craft of wallpaper design with undertones
of video production techniques feel so threatening to such a wide
ranging group of respected VJs?"
"The landscape is the map. Our histories
of panic, of dread, of the disorientation of shifts and slippages,
attempted erasures: all is a map. The advent of locative media art
makes this possible.. The nature of wireless signals and global
position satellite data (GPS) as available in many laptops , and
cell phones is that it allows information to be placed in a location
in real time."
