Description - Toni Dove by Matthew McLendon

This uniquely designed book presents the first survey of contemporary artist Toni Dove's pioneering work at the crossroads of performance, cinema, and virtual reality. Credited as one of the innovators of "interactive cinema," since the early 1990s, Toni Dove has created an oeuvre of "speculative technology" blending computer driven interactivity, live-mix performance and installation in projects which examine histories of consumer culture through evolving technologies. Dove's collaborative practice brings together visual artists, filmmakers, fashion designers, robotics engineers, computer programmers, musicians, actors, and writers-each at the vanguard of his or her own metier. Accompanying a major exhibition, this distinctively designed volume presents four of Dove's most notable works, including the debut of her newest work The Dress That Eats Souls, which exists at the forefront of computer and robotic technology. AUTHOR: Matthew McLendon is the Director and Chief Curator of The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia. ILLUSTRATIONS: 85 colour
