2014

Toni Dove2014 Dorothy H. Hirshon Artist-in-residence at the School of Media Studies at The New School, lives and works in New York.

Since the early 1990s, Dove has produced unique and highly imaginative embodied hybrids of film, installation art and experimental theater. Exploring motion sensing and robotics in live mix cinema events, performers and participants in her work dynamically interact with unfolding narratives. Dove’s latest project, Lucid Possession, is a live cinema performance mixed and animated in real-time using cutting-edge motion-sensing technologies to perform complex layers of media. It presents a contemporary ghost story, or a poetic musing on noise management, and self-perception and fame across virtual and real social spaces.

Her work has been exhibited or performed at ZKM, the Museum of Moving Image, the ZERO1 Biennial, Montreal International Festival of New Cinema and New Media, the Wexner Center for the Arts, REDCAT, The Kitchen, and many other venues and festivals.

Among other events during her residency, she participated in a panel, discussing with collaborators R. Luke DuBoisArt Jones,Leif Krinkle and Karen Young the haunted moments and entangled processes discovered in creating embodied hybrids of film, installation art and experimental theater.
