t2:Echo explores notions of co-location via Performance Telematics. Simply put, this is the use of computers in concert with telecommunication systems in performance. t2:Echo considers the impact on us as human beings of perceptible dislocations in our linear sense of space/time. The piece is part of the larger Touched Project funded by the Canada Council and the National Science and Engineering Research Council to develop video coding and processing for telepresence in the performing arts (2007-2010). A second work, Imprint, will preview at UBC's Museum of Anthropology on January 23rd 2010, and will also form part of SFU at Woodward's Inaugural Program at the Fei and Milton Wong Experimental Theatre in mid-June 2010.
