MiA Collective Art is pleased to collaborate with 2018 Artists in Residence recipient, Simona Prives, along with Composer Shiuan Chang and Curator Grace Noh for an upcoming project, We Said We Didn’t See It Coming

We Said We Didn’t See It Coming is an immersive interactive installation that represents an examination of our complex relationship between the organic and the man-made and offers a multi-sensorial construction of reality. The work is a dynamic choreography between the audience, musical compositions and video animations, presented in multiple life-sized projections, that plays with the viewer’s perception of time and place. The experience will offer dreamscapes that ignite a fragmented memory.

Simona Prives creates physical and digital collages, both still and moving, that focus on the process of decomposition and reconstruction. Simona uses multiple forms of printmaking and drawings in fragments, as well as video and found materials to assemble her intricate animations.

The recipients are commissioned to create a new work in the Harvestworks TEAM (Technology, Engineering, Art and Music) Lab. The applications were reviewed by Composer-Performer/Sound Artist Christina Campanella, Artist/ Director, DiMoDA Alfredo Salazar-Caro with Artist/Technical consultant Matthew Ostrowski.
