I really enjoy looking at the installation pieces by the sparks artists, but I didn't attend the musical type performances. I am more interested in pieces that cause people to interact with the piece or other people. I did find a few of the performances interesting as long as they are more technology based and manipulated objects rather than just playing around on some midi gear or being a vj or dj. Hopefully sparks festival will be able to continue to grow/expand over the next few years. Maybe is would bring more of the non art students around if they got one headline type artist or maybe have a gallery or event where current experimental media art students could have a chance to show their works.
