The Sophronia Project is a digital media installation and interactive performance by artist Joellyn Rock, multimedia composer Kathy McTavish, netprov creator Rob Wittig and a gang of collaborators. Electronic music by Tobin Dack. The collaborative project offers both physical and virtual space where participants may spin their own stories of Sophronia. On the walls, the graffiti angel mixes text and digital imagery gleaned from the project database… In a glowing tent, the audience can play along with projected video and digital animations to become part of the carnival… Come see what is illuminated when these two half-cities collide!
