Abstract / Summary

deLahunta was Research Coordinator for DAMPF_lab, a ‘European Culture 2000’ project (subsidy: Euros 150,000) supporting experimentation with interactive media and live performance with the following partners: V2 Media Lab (Rotterdam), Ars Electronica (Linz), Animax Multimedia Theater (Bonn) and tanz performance (Köln). A one-year collaborative project designed to "foster new and distinctive art works that integrate interactive media technologies with the performing arts", DAMPF_lab involved two complementary strands: co-productions aiming to nurture and help realise specific art works; and research labs aiming to generate shareable outcomes by drawing questions from and in turn supporting the creative work of the co-productions. deLahunta’s role included the coordination, facilitation and documentation of these labs. He details successful outcomes and critical reflections on the project in his extensive project report, submitted here as the core output. The website also contains transcripts and other project documentation. Further critical reflection took place in the context of a book chapter published in 2008.

Item Type: Report or Working Paper (Project Report)
Additional Information: DAMPF_lab represents a consolidation of deLahunta’s second research cluster, "interdisciplinary research labs", as here he drew on experiences dating back to 1998 with labs involving collaborations between live performance and new technology practitioners, including: the Hot-Wired Live Art series; and the Monaco Dance Forum (see supporting portfolio). With its focus on bringing technological expertise (from V2, Animax and Ars Electronica) together with a commensurate expertise in live performance (from the networks of tanz performance cologne) to create new and distinctive artworks, the DAMFP_lab project represents a critical point of closure for deLahunta as regards a certain conception of the relationship between new media and performing arts creation. Current projects (e.g. Absent Interfaces) are framed by a new set of critical research questions.
