SOMA | SOMA: a noise show at The Ruby Lounge at the Rubenstein Arts Center

Exhibitions, Screenings, and Performances

Quran Karriem and Rebecca Uliasz, graduate students in Duke’s Computational Media, Arts & Cultures program, are interested in performative systems ecology, visualization and signification of structures, and the ways in which audio visual experimentation can highlight power dynamics. They work together to build custom hardware and software, and perform generative audio visual sets under the name GOVERNANCE. They have had a residency in the Rubenstein Arts Center this summer to further the development of Synthball, a lucid digital instrument designed to easily interface with real time audio-visual software. It is meant to be played through user gesture. Karriem and Uliasz will mark the end of their residency with an audio-visual performance.
