"My mind is part of my body and in the way that I train my body in many disciplines... I feed my imagination with new understanding.” - Jodi Lomask
Capacitor Lab was developed to cultivate new and relevant performance concepts in a think-tank format: engineers, scientists, designers, and philosophers exchange ideas and share knowledge with a small team of artists.
Through discussions and debates, the Capacitor Lab brings a broader outlook to the creative process and provides a vehicle for ongoing creative ferment, and critical feedback for new work.
By engendering dialogue around contemporary technological and scientific issues, the resulting performance piece is not meant to be true to science or demonstrative, but a creative response to the issues and ideas explored by the participants. The Lab provides a jumping off point for the abstractions and creative musings of the artists.
Each participant brings expertise and unique experiences to the Capacitor Lab and in turns shape the foundation for each new work.
