Into the future— “In conversation with Jack Lloyd”


Jack Lloyd
The third Canberra Critics’ Circle “In conversation with…” session for winter, 2013, was held on Tuesday, July 30 in the Boardroom at Canberra Museum and Gallery.

Jack Lloyd is a performer, writer and digital video artist who holds a Bachelor of Arts (Digital) from the Centre for New Media Arts at the ANU, specialising in digital video production and interactive digital media.

He works as operations manager at Belconnen Arts Centre and was previously Technical and Production Officer at Tuggeranong Arts Centre, where he produced DVDs on the Fresh Funk Dancers, the "Indigiglass '08-Postcards from the Referendum" project and "Young Gungahlin -Through Our Eyes", focusing on  Mariana Del Castillo's mural project. He also hosted The Young Independent Filmmakers Award.

Jack is also a founding method of Boho,  a Canberra theatre company specialising in audience-driven narrative, presenting interactive cross-art form performances to festivals, theatres, science conferences and schools including the Brisbane Under The Radar Festival, the Asia-Pacific Complex Systems Conference, the Adelaide Fringe Festival and TEDxCanberra.
 
While  some of the critics’ questions were addressed to the day-today practicalities of getting shows on and digital films made, much of  this “conversation" took a leap into the future as Lloyd  introduces the circle  to possible  scenarios, limits, parameters and potential directions of  interactive  arts in the digital and Smartphone age.
