Sam Irwin is a multimedia artist and composer from New York City. He graduated from Bennington College with a Bachelor’s degree in visual arts and music. He has worked with the Martha Graham Company, the Marie Christian Giordano Dance Company, and MoMa PS1, among others. In his works he uses programming to create interactive performances, projections, and instruments.


During his stay at the residency he created a performance, which was presented in the end of his stay at the Ii main library. Limited2 was a performance piece featuring a character designed by Irwin. The piece was durational, and took place within an hour. The performance involved very quiet sound, and very slight movement: the character was mostly still during this time. The only movement occurring was on the face of the character. The face of the character was made out of an iPad, which feature improvised and interactive movement.
