Artist Statement:

I've constructed the Möbius poem on paper, with scissors and tape, but I've always had bigger ambitions for it.�I just had no idea how to put it online, let alone make it move online.�Ico and I went back and forth discussing the poem, but ultimately I trusted Ico with my poem and he took great care with it.

Ico Bukvic The art of composer and multimedia sculptor Ivica Ico Bukvic (b.1976) is defined by the ubiquitous interactivity. Fueled by a synergistic outlook, his work is a balancing act between scientific research of new multimedia technologies for the purpose of betterment of the overall quality of life and a pursuit of new forms of artistic expression using newfound tools. This passion for art and technology coupled by a traditional music background has empowered him to defy preexisting forms and even challenge the very foundations, yet do so without sacrificing their lasting appeal. His opus encompasses aural and visual, acoustic and electronic, performances and installations.

Having received doctorate at the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati (2005), Dr. Bukvic is currently working at Virginia Tech as an assistant professor in music composition & technology, the founder and director of the Digital Interactive Sound and Intermedia Studio
DISIS , assistant co-director of the Collaborative for Creative Technologies in the Arts and Design (CCTAD) initiative, a member of the Center for Human-Computer Interaction (CHCI), and as a faculty (by courtesy) in departments of Computer Science and Art & Art History.

Artist Statement:

Setting Denise's remarkable poem in the interactive audio-visual domain has been truly an amazing experience. Every time I returned to the poem I discovered something new and exciting, urging me to continually challenge my own creative contribution. It's been truly a pleasure working with Denise and I look forward to our future collaborations.
