Bangalore, India, December 11th, 2014 — Sublime Galleria, South India’s leading art gallery, reputed for introducing the most innovative art forms to Bangalore, showcased performances/ interactive art at The Collection, UB City this evening. This initiative was in association with the Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology.

About the projects:
* Dynamic Geometries
A collaborative site-specific multimedia performance by reputed international dancer/choreographer, Sonia Rodriguez and respected filmmaker, Ujjwal Utkarsh, using movement, music, digital art and sound. The collaboration is with the Attakkalari Talent Academy and Srishti. The overarching theme aims to showcase how the urban environment /architecture of our cities influence our experience, evokes our memories and fuels our imagination.
* Performing Systems
Created by Sofy – media artist and educator working with video, interactivity, projections, code, paper, and salvaged material. “Performing Systems” is a live interactive performance with light and sound, using generative electronic music and art that takes an iterative form. The focus is visual composition, writing one’s own performance software and performing.
* Story of Light
This has been created by Yashas Shetty (artist and educator working between various disciplines including installation, sound, software and biotechnology) and Jatin Vidyarthi (sound artist and electronic music producer). In this exhibit, the artists along with the students have explored the nature of light as a medium and re-imagined light through installations, sound works and other experiments in the form of sonic works, kinetic sculptures, interactive installations and films, which will be showcased in ‘The Story of Light Festival’ in Goa. The year 2015 is the ‘Year of Light’ at the festival and CEMA at Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology has been invited as a content partner, and to showcase work at this reputed festival.
* Sonic Beams
Created by Professor Cathy Lane (composer, sound artist, lecturer and researcher) and Sindhu Thirumalaisamy (artist and filmmaker), “Sonic Beams” is a sonic/audio/visual installation that locates itself to the lighthouses in Fort Kochi and around Kochi. Utilizing maritime history, myths, local folklore, oral history, shipping records, architecture, data, sounds of ships, waves, etc. the project aims to create a narrative, frame an archive and provide a dynamic experience of life around the sea.
* TATE: Global Art Space
Created by Michelle Williams Gamaker, whose work deals with performances and complex renderings of reality via documentary, fiction and video installation in collaboration with artist and textile designer, Meera, “Global Art Space” is a collaborative project with TATE UK, Central St. Martins London, Kochi Muzhris Biennale and Srishti. It explores and interacts with the local environment in London and India via performance and photography with the view to show artistic interpretations to a wider (global) audience through TATE Gallery, online exhibition and the Biennale in Kochi. The participation is about reenacting, recreating, and reinterpreting the artistic ‘Generative’. A group of students in CSM, London, and Srishti School Bangalore have already created this generative in the first part of the project, led by artist Michelle Gamakar. The outcome will be a series of exhibitions in all the venues mentioned above.
About ‘The Interim':
The Interim operates as an inter-disciplinary open-ended platform and framework for learning through engagement with various artistic and creative practices and processes.
Projects curated are socially and culturally contextualized with art and design, leading students beyond the campus and classroom into the public realm. The Interim functions as a community arts initiative to explore contemporary social-cultural and political issues. Rural migration, religious diversity, class, money, caste, loss of traditions, creeping in of new traditions, commercialization, abundance of technology and the ubiquity of information, and gender politics are some of the realities than bind and shape our interactions. These realities create conflicting values and result in contrasting economic and social development, often leading to political apathy, corruption, etc.
It is in this space that art and media can be used as interventions to initiate dialogue, provide new spaces and places of expression, document and archive loss, memory, understand how natural phenomenon (climate, sound pollution, genetic crops, etc.) interact with the social world to create sustainable frameworks for engagement and change.
The project pragmatically pushes the boundaries of experimentation with various forms of expression, participation and narration. Through a variety of lenses, paradigm, practices and materials, the students work with ideas and concepts in the field with artists and designers to explore, create, understand, represent, and construct our understanding of our social and natural realities.
