Haven: Weaving Spaces of Refuge and Significance is a cross-disciplinary collaboration between Ninette Paloma of the Santa Barbara Centre for Aerial Dance and Tamika Rivera of Here Projects. Inundated by a conveyer belt of disheartening news regarding the state of our world and its inhabitants, Paloma and Rivera sought to create an egalitarian habitat of refuge and transformation, filled with magical thinking and expansive realism. Using fabric and fiber, metal and methodology, Rivera and Paloma will construct a haven of color and ritual, where dancers will enter and explore the concepts of acceptance and transcendence.
The ten-minute performance will be complemented by several free-standing performance sculptures and a visual arts exhibition in Gallery D.
Thursday, March 7 6pm-8pm
Performances at 6:15/6:45/7:15/7:45

About Ninette Paloma:
For over 25 years, Ninette Paloma’s feet have been dangling over the edges of dusty stages the world over, from an early immersion into physical theatre with Chicago youth company Brechita, to high-flying expeditions as a teenage girl walking the tightwire for a midwestern circus. In 2006, she founded the Santa Barbara Centre for Aerial Dance, a dance conservatory dedicated to the art of modern flight. Choreography credits include 2011 Vesna, 2012 Indah, 2013 The Violet Hour, 2014 Belline, 2015 Petite Fleche, 2016 Elemental You, 2017 Empathy in Blue Minor, and 2018 Sonnet of Limbs, eight evening-length works that have debuted in Santa Barbara, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Mesa, and La Baule, France.

UCSB Media Arts & Technology
VECTOR HACK Jam & VECTOR SYNTHESIS live performance
1st THURSDAY, MARCH 7, 2019
EVENT TYPE: EXHIBITION, PERFORMANCE, PRESENTATION
VENUE: SBCAST 513 GARDEN STREET, STUDIO F
The VECTOR HACK Jam provides a showcase for a series of sketches made by UCSB Media Arts and Technology and other students and participants during a two week long workshop, sponsored by the Media Arts and Technology Program and the Systemics Public Programming Initiative, with sound+light artist Derek Holzer.
Participants explored the use of Pure Data and other digital platforms to generate responsive and interactive audio signals which also form an image when used to control the horizontal and vertical movements of a beam of light in either an oscilloscope or a laser display. The works they created probe both the synesthetic experience as well as the medium-specific idiosyncrasies of the devices they utilize.
VECTOR SYNTHESIS is an audiovisual, computational art project using sound synthesis and vector graphics display techniques to investigate the direct relationship between sound+image. It draws inspiration from media archaeology and obsolete technologies such as the Cathode Ray Tube monitor, combined with contemporary laser display techniques. Audio waveforms control the vertical and horizontal movements as well as the brightness of a single beam of light. What is seen and heard are both an expression of the same electronic signal.
Derek Holzer (USA 1972) is a sound+light artist based in Helsinki & Berlin, whose current interests include DIY electronics, audiovisual instrument building, the relationship between sound and space, media archaeology, and participatory art forms. He has performed live, taught workshops and created scores of unique instruments and installations since 2002 across Europe, North and South America, and New Zealand.
MAT@UCSB, University of California Santa Barbara’s Media Arts and Technology Graduate Program (MAT) is a transdisciplinary graduate program that fuses emergent media, computer science, engineering, electronic music and digital art research, practice, production, and theory. Created by faculty in both the College of Engineering and the College of Letters and Science, MAT offers an unparalleled opportunity for working at the frontiers of art, science, and technology, where new art forms are born and new expressive media are invented.
