FISHBON Experiences

Fishbon encourages collaboration between artists, engineers, writers, designers, performers and participants to create unique, real-time interactive experiences that speak to contemporary audiences.

Immersive Environments

To contain and enhance the effects of the collaborative experience, performance environments are self-contained. Once entered, the resulting mood/sensory “world” is continuous. There is no lapse in the “experience bubble” until the event is either finished or the participant leaves it. Interactivity Since Fishbon experience elements are designed to be dynamic, interfaces are provided that allow participants to make changes on-the-fly. This interaction may involve volume, color, shapes, and plots. The participant is encouraged to use the tools provided to create their own experience.

Narrative Structures

Most projects have a storyline with characters, locations and events. As a participant, you’re immersed in a world that’s active. Things happen and you can affect outcomes with the choices you make.

Collaborative

Fishbon projects rely on the genius of the group, not the individual. The group is made up of individuals, but it’s the interplay that’s most important to us. To create rich experiences, an extensive skillset is required. The collective provides access to a much wider range of capabilities than any individual is likely to possess.

Contemporary Themes

Fishbon is interested in culture and movement. Projects seek to understand and address themes that affect participants in real time.

How FISHBON works

All Fishbon projects are supported by nine special interest cells:

Myth, Ritual and Healing Arts

Creating theater, healing events, special designed experiences and hosting space where potentially magic happens!

Aerial Arts

Aerial arts, need I say more? Join if you'd like to be involved in any way.

Fashion

The Fashion cell is interested in design, construction and showcasing of contemporary fashion (particularly personalized eventwear)

Fire Arts

The Fire Arts Cell is interested in fire and its application in art (sculpture, performance and immersive experience)

Dance

Ronit leads a free form dance experience Thursdays at 3:15 pm based on the Gabrielle Roth's 5 Rhythms

Improvizational Theatre

Med-advanced improvisational theater group

New Music

The New Music Cell is interested in all forms of electronic and acoustic music, especially that produced by unique new instruments snd electronic dance tracks.

Performance

The Performance Cell is interested in immersive event performance (dance, spoken word, puppetry, circus arts)

Virtual Worlds

The Virtual Worlds Cell is interested in immersive, interactive virtual environments and their relationship to real life worlds

Each cell has a director who coordinates cell activities, interfaces with Fishbon, and is responsible for communicating with members and the larger community (through email, websites and blogs). Cells are allocated time and space at the Pescadrome and use of equipment and resources to support their activities. From time to time cell projects will be showcased in larger scale events. The directors are carefully chosen. They are affiliates of Fishbon and effectively act as intermediate management and, more importantly, provide significant creative impetus and energy. The affiliates are approached, after we have carefully identified a range of candidates and assembled a well-considered structural plan which deals with the numerous practical and philosophical concerns. Chosen affiliates will have resources and opportunities provided to them in exchange for adopting certain responsibilities, such as nurturing the cell, attending meetings, locking up, etc.. Cells undertake projects that interest members and the larger Fishbon community.

so (at least as far as I can see from stumbling around here for 2 minutes looking) there is no posted contact us page - like not even a single aggregate contact or info bucket email?  looks like the same on the fishbon FB page...
intentional? or am I being blind?

Mission and Purpose

Fishbon’s Purpose:
Fishbon's purpose is to provide a forum, education and support for creative collaboration, mentorship and the visceral experience of visual, aural and performance-based art.  It is also to provide exhibition media for the artists and their art forms.

Fishbon’s Mission:
Fishbon's mission is to encourage collaboration between artists, technologists, writers, designers, performers and participants to create unique, real-time, compelling aesthetic experiences that speak to contemporary audiences.  Fishbon believes the synergy (sharings of perspectives and skills) made possible in a collaborative space creates a unique and special context for art.  By providing context, physical infrastructure, tools, mentoring support and encouragement for creative collaboration, Fishbon is an experiential incubator for emerging cooperative working models.  Much more about the process experience than final product, Fishbon creates a diverse "interactive" learning community that would be difficult to achieve in isolated individual working environments.

Fishbon is a 501 (c) (3) arts organization
