accelerate into osmotic overdrive – a maze of image, sound and text resonating for one night as an oscillating narrative
InterAlia [definition: among other things] is dLux media arts research laboratory of experimental media art collaborations and live audio / visual data processing. InterAlia is the last event of the futurescreen02 : data terra program and will metamorphose into our Closing PartyŠ
InterAlia:: media lab for the construction of experimental situations, rendering as an audio/visual/performative environment whereby an oscillating narrative of image, sound and text will be hacked, patched and re/screened for live contexts. Audience and party goers alike are invited to embrace an accelerating drive of content and concern mediated digitally.
InterAlia situates itself within our information saturated reality and focuses on artists’ creative manipulation and subversion of data using new technologies and their own specially modified digital tools.
A stellar line-up of Sydney AV + performance artists have been invited to engage with the fs02::data terra thematic. Lalila, Cicada, Ciindi, Jason Gee, Spanna, Wade Marynowskj, Alex Davies, Ian Andrews, Peggy Wallach and Veren Grigorev will compose discreet sets of audio / visual or performative / textual material with following timeframes; / 1 x 5 min / 1 x 10 min /1 x 20 min.
These sets will be mixed live resulting in a site-specific choreography…
enter the INTERALIA mist…
and then – party on with the ‘DIFFERENCE ENGINE’

In late 1999 and 2000 I hung out with the PirateTV.net crew at the Ninjatune studios in South London, for weekly netcast live audiovisual jams. The PirateTV slogan was “DIY psychedelic political interactive streaming zentertainment with quality content from top selectors”. The lineup would change from week to week, the mainstayers being Mike (VJ Juxta), Bongo and Matt Black (Coldcut). Sometimes live musicians would come in, I’d often do live camera for those. We netcast from Matt’s studio “Spacelab” behind the record label offices, crammed with records, instruments, decks and audiovisual gear. There was even a couple of old early synthesizers that the Doctor Who theme song was played on, I’m not sure how often they got dusted off and plugged in. The Fairlight Computer Video Instrument got a fair bit of play, as did PCs running Vjamm (running early versions of Vjamm 2 at that stage) and the Panasonic MX50 video mixers. We used Real Producer to stream out to a varying audience, encouraging folks to hop into the IRC channel to chat while we jammed.
Fervid Flipbook (10sec, 2008) pokes fun at the stereotypical imagery and predictable body-fascism found in a pile of old gay porn magazines of the 80s. Pornography is often somewhat lacking in humour itself, though there’s plenty of humour to be found. Produced/directed by Robbie McEwan and myself for the Tape Projects Locked Groove / Flipbook project.
CHEAP (6 mins, 1995) is an off-kilter short about consumerism and desire. Two teens on a sugar-rush and a hormone-high, ache for each other across aisles of groceries, in a strange supermarket which is a hotbed of queers and shoplifters. They wanna know what love is – is romance real, or just a fantasy of manufactured appetites?
Sister Mary Clancy Of The Overflow Does Vagina Dentata (6mins 37sec, 2007) is a performance by Gaylourdes, evoking the film-theory spectre of the Vagina Dentata, at the Camp Betty Cinema in Melbourne, 2007. This clip formed the first footage for a new collaborative film project exploring the themes of the double, the film within the film, the contamination of reality by dreams and the voyage in time.
Glitch Western (2min 9 sec, 2003) is a snippet from an audiovisual performance by Spoole (Anna Helme aka Spanna, Sean Healy aka Jean Poole, Andrew Sargent aka FutureEater) at Electrofringe 2003. The Glitch Western show was like a remix of the cinematic motifs and techniques of the Western, but also an examination of man and nature, and the impact of the pioneering (colonising) spirit on the environment – in the wild west, but also here in Australia.
Electric Dreams – Act 1 (1 min 40 sec, 2004) is a clip from the Artesian AV Arkestra’s performance of “Electric Dreams” for Nextwave 2004. The Artesian AV Arkestra was Anna Helme, Louise Terry, Paul Bourke and Michael Prior. “Electric Dreams” was a colourful genre-hopping hybrid theatre / audiovisual performance piece commissioned for the Nextwave festival.
