MPG : Mobile Performance Group is a collective of new media artists interested in finding new ways to present art outside of traditional venues. MPG disseminates their work by using automobiles, video projection, cell phones, FM transmission, wireless hotspots, and any other technologies that allow artist to engage the public. The Group was founded by Matt Roberts and is part of his classes taught at Stetson University’s Digital Art program.

Examples of past performances :
Shopping Carts - Using recycled cardboard, solar power, batteries and multimedia equipment, MPG converts shopping carts into modular performance units. During the day the carts are used to collect energy, sounds and images. Each cart is equipped with solar panels and batteries for energy collection. They are also equipped with audio/video recording equipment for sound and image collection. During the night carts carry panels, made of recycled cardboard, that allow several carts to connect and provide table space for the performers. The three basic carts are audio, video, and power. The audio module carries speakers, amps and mixing board. The video module carries video projectors, cameras, and lcd screens. The power module carries batteries, inverters and power strips to provide power for the performers. Click on the images below for more info.

Parking Spaces - For this project MPG investigates one of the most ubiquitous spaces in the United States, the parking lot. In "Parking Spaces” MPG will move through the city looking for empty parking lots to collect sounds and images. Using the collected material MPG creates an improvised performance in the space.
