|E/M/D/L (European Mobile Dome Lab). presents: Liminal Spaces, Dream Colider, and Murumuration,
the culmination of a EU funded collaboration between Canadian and European partners.
This research project was carried out through eight international residencies and is presented in the Satosphere of Montreal’s
Society for Arts and Technology (SAT). Articulated through the fulldome environment as an instrument to explore transdisciplinary
forms of artistic expression, these experiments oscillate between performance, interactive installation and immersive event.
We are made up of layers: the physical ones of skin and tissues, but also the intangible ones of history, tradition,
images, and words. In the strata of sensations and accumulations of meanings, what strategies can be used to subjectivate
such heterogeneous materials and find coherence among them? Where should borders be porous and where should they be strengthened?
How can we let them breathe and allow them to change their contours? How to inhabit the threshold between two states, conditions,
or regions – the transitory, the indeterminate? Sheltering layers of performance, interactivity and image, sound and text,
the dome becomes the intermediary membrane between inside and outside, as it is explored and pierced through at the limit
of palpable space.
