Not Drowning, Just Waving by Steve Gurysh

H3O//002 co-presented by the Drift and the Center for Urban Intervention Research took place on May 10th 2015 beneath the Veteran’s Bridge along the north shore of the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh. For H3O//002, the Drift partnered with the Center for Urban Intervention Research (CUIR) and students from a course offered by CUIR director Ali Momeni in the School of Art at Carnegie Mellon University. Throughout the semester, the Drift, CUIR and students in the course developed a custom array of audio/visual rigs and installations, virtual reality experiences, and site specific performances. In addition to these collaborations and student projects, the Drift curated a selection of works and debuted several new commissions by an international group of artists working in video, animation, and sound.

H3O is an event series and platform of research created by the Drift that transforms select sites along bodies of water into immersive experiences in sound, expanded cinema, and new media installation. In this series, the Drift selects artists, musicians, and technologists to develop audiovisual experiences that explore fluidity as an aesthetic, conceptual, and contextual body of inquiry.

H3O is supported in part by funding from the Carnegie Mellon University Frank-Ratchye Fund For Art @ the Frontier, the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, and the Pennsylvania Council for the Arts. Technical equipment and expertise provided courtesy of the Center for Urban Intervention Research, the School of Art at Carnegie Mellon University, and Iontank.
