New York City has been reknowned as America’s melting pot long before it became the Big Apple. Today the city’s populatioin is so diverse that no one group dominates. But is leadership at the city’s cultural institutions keeping pace with these demographics?
Skytime 2014 / Moon Rainbow is an ongoing series of collaborative Intermedia artworks conceived in 1982 by choreographer, filmmaker, and Intermedia pioneer, Elaine Summers. The project explores the collaborative process with emphasis on the interrelationship between art and technology. Summers’ SKY works have seen many incarnations, varying from site-specific multi-disciplinary performance events, to a web-based concept artwork (skytime.org) – all of which are based on the sky as the origin and continuum of time in the human experience.
