Last Man To Die Interactive Art

There will be a performance of Last Man To Die at Gorman House, Canberra, 7pm 4 December 2010. The installation is open today for free viewing at the Gorman House Arts Centre. I had a look today while Christmas shopping at the Gorman House Markets. The usually brightly lit Canberra Contemporary Art Space (CCAS) has been turned into a twilight world lit by video projectors. You are handed a bar coded ticket on entry. Placed under a scanner, this activates multimedia presentations, with projections onto hanging screens. Exactly what this was all about I was not sure of (like all high art, it needs to be explained). Tonight's performance will include live performers in the venue as well as music transmitted live from Sweden. The concept reminds me of the excellent "True Logic of the Future" by Boho.
