UTD to Participate in “Intervallum,” An Interactive Art
Exhibition, With The ArtCentre of Plano and CCCCD
RICHARDSON, Texas (July 15, 2002) — The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) is collaborating with The ArtCentre of Plano and THE ARTS gallery of the Collin County Community College District (CCCCD) to present “Intervallum,” three interactive installations featuring light sound, video and sculpture.
The installations — Psychochronometric Fantasy (UTD), Spatium (CCCCD) and Flexus (The ArtCentre) — will share the common theme of human perception of time and space, and will be linked so that interactivity in one space is reflected in the other “Intervallum” locations. Collaborators for “Intervallum” include UTD faculty member Christopher Morgan, Billy Chilton, Andrew Duckworth and Rex Reece.
The exhibitions will run in all three locations August 19-30. They will open concurrently with receptions in all three locations on Friday, Aug. 23, from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The UTD installation will be centered on a large sundial sculpture in the Main Gallery of the Visual Arts Building. It will include a series of light columns designed and built by local artist and art professor Rex Reece; they act to change the apparent passage of time and are programmed to respond to participants walking through the sculpture. Ambient sounds and conversation are picked up by microphones, processed with time effects and reproduced over a multi-loudspeaker spatial audio system.
All UTD art exhibitions are free and open to the public. The Visual Arts Building is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The building is closed on Sunday.
Spatium, hosted by THE ARTS gallery at CCCCD, will create a completely immersive environment using 360-degree video projections. The images will include space perception illusions, models of the UTD and ArtCentre installations, as well as real-time processing of the participants who are captured on video as they wander around. As with the other installations, ambient audio will be recorded, processed and spatialized through a multi-loudspeaker sound system. THE ARTS gallery is located at the CCCCD Spring Creek Campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway, in Plano. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m.-8 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m-5 p.m.; and Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. For more information, contact THE ARTS gallery at 972-881-5873.
Flexus, hosted by The ArtCentre of Plano, will focus on the concept of space-time curvature. This installation will feature computer-controlled lights, 3-D video animations and live audio, which is recorded, computer processed and spatialized. The ArtCentre is located in downtown Plano at the corner of 15th Street and Avenue K. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call the ArtCentre at 972-423-7809.
