21C Portfolio

Selected work in the xMPL and other venues

Established in 2011, the Experimental Media Performance Lab (xMPL) is a focal point for interdisciplinary and experimental arts projects at UC Irvine. Now part of 21C, the xMPL hosts faculty and student research and creative work in emergent media, socially engaged artmaking and responsive design thinking. Areas of investigation include intermedia, multi-site performance, interactive systems, video projection, responsive lighting, spatialized sound, software controllers, analog/digital interfaces, streaming media and other emerging technologies. See below for a sampling of 21C projects, many of which were presented in the xMPL.
