3 Modes of Interaction Design: Artist N.B.Aldrich to present work

N.B.Aldrich, installation, performance, video, and acousmatic artist and faculty member at the University of Maine, will be presenting his work in a presentation entitled 3 Modes of Interaction Design on Tuesday, March 1st at 7p.m. as a part of Tuesdays at the IRMC, the Intermedia MFA program’s visiting artist lecture series.

Aldrich’s work is founded in the speculation about systems of biological, physical, geographical, sociological, and cognitive organization. Aldrich comments, “much of my work currently is rooted in speculation about observed systems of organization, whether biological, physical or geographical, sociological, or cognitive. The goal is then to create a process that effectively applies this process to a specific information set that will produce a rich aesthetic experience and also a chance to contemplate how some of the logic of the Information Age plays out.”

Currently, Aldrich teaches at the University of Maine in the Intermedia MFA department. Prior to earning an MFA in Electronic Music Composition at Bennington College, he spent ten years as a theatre director and artistic director and as a sound designer and composer for theatre and dance performances over twenty-five years.

Aldrich’s recent work has been exhibited at the Ottawa School of Art (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada), The Cannery (Penobscot, ME) and the Portland Museum of Art (Portland, ME). His work has also been shown in festivals and exhibits around the world.
