The Convergent Media Collective is excited to say we were able to help augment the Where the Rivers Meet performance at the University of the Incarnate word through the creation of a processional path using LED lighting and Projections. Our collaboration with the creators of Where the Rivers Meet began when associate professor Kevin Salfen approached founding CMC member and associate professor as well, joey, to see if the collective would be interested in working on some lighting solutions to a part of performance where there is a procession between the art building and the chapel at the University of the Incarnate Word. joey’s solution to the collaboration was to create an LED lit path, along with some visuals projected into the trees that would add an ambience. joey ordered a set of 10 additional par cans and was able to work with the meteorology department ‘s Dr. Gerald Mulvey to obtain additional Apple MacBook’s to help with the projections.
Though there was a chance of rain, the other evening was an overall success with Where the River Meet’s attendees getting to take in the ambiance of the space created, some even stopping to take photos and videos of the space.
It’s great to work with Universities that collaborate between not only departments, but have international scopes when creating new works, such as Where the River Meets production accomplished.
