Intermedia displays new forms in art...

Sun Art Critic

Domes is the name and the theme and the form to be taken by Intermedia at the Vancouver Art Gallery, May 20-31, 12 days that offer a condensed "art-living experience," in an assortment of specially constructed geodesic domes. Each dome has been made from a different material, and will be lit by a different color. They range from 15 feet to 35 feet in diameter. something different will happen in each one at different times and in totally different ways.

According to Werner Aellen, director of Intermedia, this years events are more the result of a lot of individuals, beginners and specialists with varied backgrounds and levels of experience, working side by side, than a group effort. Intermedia doesn't fossilize.

"I thing the means are more subtle than they were before," Aellen said, "there is less emphases in technology as such, more on presenting a sensitizing experience. Just how sensitizing it will be I don't know, but there is fun in the exploration.

Some of the events scheduled for the first week of Domes are: an opening night accompanied by a 'Celebration' of 1,000 flutes, Karate and Judo displays and an Intermedia wrestling match; on Wednesday afternoon and evening jumble sale and Bazaar; on Thursday and Friday at 4 p.m. video tape hours; at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Seven Acts, a media theater performance; at 8 p.m. on Friday Dance-loop, omni-media dance in 7 rooms.
