News: April 1st, 2017

April 1st, 2017; “That’s right, this is all very exciting!” admits IMRC’s founder and director Owen Smith: “I just didn’t expect everyone to find out this soon.”

Late-breaking news: IMRC has already secretly expanded– to the moon.

Photos obtained show important plans to expand Intermedia, “the space between”, into inter-planetary space.

Photographs showing the new IMRC location research were uncovered this morning. “Remember, all art is research,” Owen Smith calms everyone at an emergency IMRC meeting this morning.

“The news is out now that we are planing to do Inter-Cosmic Intermedia. This opens up many exciting possibilities and I am very much in favor,” states Owen. Building manager and systems engineer Sean Smith agrees, photographed below at work during a recent visit to the new building. “What, does everyone think that we’re just comfortable with the status quo? No way!”

Artist in Residence Ali Smith jumps in, “I’m going to like this view so much better.” Ali is shown below in a photograph by Amy Smith during the group’s top-secret site evaluation. Susan Smith agrees. “This brings Socially Engaged Art to a totally new level.”

“No more Mr. Nice Guy! It’s the actual moon for us, that’s right, and we’re taking it over,” states Professor Nate Smith. “The moon really is an abandoned site,” Susan Smith adds. “This is Interactive Paradigm on a cosmic scale,” states Nate Smith in agreement.

Professor Gene Smith adds that as soon as he finds an outlet he plans to do projection mapping back towards Earth. Director Owen Smith raises his hand slowly, “Just remember, this is Intermedia, so it’s the space between earth and moon that counts the most.”


April Fool’s Day: “Historians have linked April Fools’ Day to ancient festivals such as Hilaria, which involved people dressing up in disguises. There’s also speculation that April Fools’ Day was tied to the vernal equinox, or first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, when Mother Nature fooled people with changing, unpredictable weather.In modern times, people have gone to great lengths to create elaborate April Fools’ Day hoaxes. Newspapers, radio, TV stations, even web sites have participated in the April 1 tradition of reporting outrageous fictional claims that have fooled their audiences. In 1957, the BBC reported that Swiss farmers were experiencing a record spaghetti crop, showing footage of people harvesting noodles from trees.”

He owns two hurdy gurdys, thus exploring drone-musical work and the aesthetic value of unfinished music. His concentration ranges from experimental-musical composition to photos, sometimes wondering about the colonization of 12-tone Western music vs. noise.
