What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Allow us to serve you a cocktail made of DNA.

Attend Good Genes and make your own genetically modified cocktail party. With live music and using DNA from a hat worn – and never washed – by the actors in Bertolt Brecht’s Berliner Ensemble, Sister Sylvester presents a bio-art cabaret where the work takes place in the audience’s small intestine. A thorough celebration of thieves, biohackers, and cannibals, Good Genes sheds worn out scientific narrative and turns them into a science for the people.

About Maxlive 2023

Media Art Xploration (MAX) and National Sawdust co-present MAXlive 2023: Where Is My Body?, a festival of music, dance and interactive performance that intersects with technology and science in exciting, exhilarating, and provocative ways. Through beauty, humor, violence and augmented virtual realities, these interactive works open up new portals of performance. Take your pick of a world premiere of new music, groundbreaking dance, or a cabaret where you conduct a science experiment.

The MAXlive 2023 will showcase creations from the MAXmachina laboratory program, where artists have been experimenting with performance, science, and technology.

Sister Sylvester is a new-media artist based in New York and Istanbul. She is a current resident at ONX Studio; a 2019 MacDowell Fellow; an alumnus of the Public Theater New Works program and the CPH:DOX lab.

It premiered at IDFA ’21 and has screened at festivals internationally, winning Best Short Film at the Istanbul International Film Festival. In live performance she works with hand-made books that use spatial narratives and spoken and written text to create communal reading experiences, most recently with Constantinopoliad at National Sawdust, commissioned by the Onassis Foundation.

She teaches a class on microbiology and performance at Colorado College, and has also taught and lectured at MIT, Princeton, UCCS, Columbia University and others.
