Welcome to EchindaLabs!
This Master’s Report describes the work, influences, ideas, and research that culminate in my final thesis exhibition at the University of Texas at Austin. I position my practice in an intersection between experimental theater and studio art. Working with time, image, installation, and the roll of the audience, I use one art form to point to the traditions, limitations and conventions of the other. My MFA Thesis work, Welcome to EchindaLabs! is a non-linear digital play in the form of a multi-media installation. It exists in the gallery and also as a collection of websites, videos, and ad assets. I discuss my practice of working between studio art and theater, and how I explore narrative content and multi-media form in Welcome to EchindaLabs!
