It might look like a scene from a haunted mansion, but it really wasn’t that scary.The performance by Brooklyn-based duo Ariadne, made up of Christine Lanx and Benjamin Forest, was just one of many opening weekend events that drew spectators to the Santa Fe Railyard for the Currents International New Media Festival last Friday and Saturday.

Outdoor projections and projects complemented the exhibition within El Museo  Cultural on those days.

Ariadne, termed an audio/visual sacred music duo, performed in the auditorium while audience members came and went. Their description: “With a focus on interspersing the ritualism of ancient spirituality and the secular iconography of the postmodern, Ariadne flawlessly bridge the two worlds through their intricate musical compositions, striking digital visuals, and captivating live performances.”

Yes, it was unusual and more than a little strange, albeit strangely fascinating. But that’s what Currents is all about: keeping us on the cutting edge of new media.
