You will also develop a deeper understanding of the history of visual performance, referencing the history of the performing arts and expanded cinema.

They have presented their work across five continents, at venues like the Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Modern Art, Lincoln Center, Madison Square Garden, the American Museum of Natural History, SFMOMA, the Mercat des les Flors (Barcelona), LUX2006 (Sevilla), Auditorium Parco della Musica (Roma), Sonic Light (Amsterdam), Wien Modern (Vienna), Inventionen (Berlin), and the Teatro Colón CETC (Buenos Aires). Over the years they have innovated and helped to develop tools and techniques for visual performance, collaborating with the software design company Vidvox LLC to develop live video software including VDMX, the central application used in the course
