Black Box Studio

The Center for Arts, Media and Performance is currently accepting proposals for performances, installations, showings and presentations in the Black Box Studio.

The Black Box has a sprung floor and contains a high-end multi-channel sound system, an outstanding theatrical lighting rig, and HD multiple video projectors and projection surfaces.

As the performance area of the ATLAS Institute, the center is interested in projects that integrate technology with artistic practice. Because of the special nature of the space, the center does not book events that could just as easily happen in another campus venue; proposals must explain how the Black Box’s unique capabilities will be used or how the project will intensively use technology.

The center is particularly interested in projects that involve more than one discipline, including collaborations between various branches of the arts, collaborations between artists and scientists, or other interdisciplinary hybrids.

Projects may be proposed by students and/or by faculty.

The center is now reviewing programming for next academic year and will accept proposals until March 14. The schedule will be announced in early April.

Lobby, video wall, exhibition hall

The center currently is accepting proposals for installations, exhibits and shows in the following spaces:

• The 1,000-square-foot ATLAS lobby, which houses multiple audio and video zones, theatrical lighting and a steel pipe grid.

• The main lobby video wall, which is an 11-by-6 foot, 1,280-by-720 pixel nine-cube video wall, and is capable of receiving a variety of input signals.

• The Exhibition Hall, which offers a three-section, 45-foot linear wall for display of two-dimensional work and is equipped with tracks, hangars and lighting.

Projects may be proposed by students and/or by faculty.

The center is now reviewing programming for next academic year and will accept proposals until March 14. The schedule will be announced in early April.

Audio/video recording projects

The center currently is accepting proposals for audio and/or video recording projects.

Both the Black Box Studio and the Production Studio are equipped with HD video cameras, green-screen capability, and tie-lines to a multi-channel Pro Tools audio recording system.

Recording projects must have a faculty sponsor. As we only have a limited number of days to devote to recording each semester, space is limited, available times for recording are limited during a semester, and proposals are competitive. Projects may be proposed by students and/or faculty.

The center is now reviewing programming for next academic year and will accept proposals until March 14. The schedule will be announced in early April.
