The point is...

Canada Council for the Arts

Jaroslaw Kapuscinski

Intermedia performance/lecture The point is... was inspired by Wassily Kandinsky's Point and line to plane, a book in which the artist attempts to objectively and methodically classify the expresion of basic graphical elements. In reality the presented views were subjective and their tone expressive in itself.

The point is... playfully parallels this quasi-scientific attempt within an intermedia context. Visual points are collided with musical gestures and word expressions to "methodically" reveal the multiple dimensions of "intermedia point."
