here's the blurb:
IGNITE/FLOW, curated for AxS FIRE and WATER by visual/sound artist Steve Roden, features three commissioned works by four remarkable interdisciplinary artists: Mark So, Yann Novak and Robert Crouch, and Carole Kim.
The commissioned artists were asked to respond to the FIRE and WATER theme as well as the Wind Tunnel Gallery site on the Art Center College South Campus (home of the Graduate Media Design program).
READING ILLUMINATIONS | Mark So
Composer Mark So presents READING ILLUMINATIONS [readings 41], a sonic exploration of fire and water elements in visionary post-romantic poet Arthur Rimbaud’s dizzying collection of prose poems, performed both nights by Mark So with Julia Holter.
FATA MORGANA | Yann Novak and Robert Crouch
Mutii-media performance artists Yann Novak and Robert Crouch present FATA MORGANA – a kind of fragmented travelogue, reconstructed through video and audio field recordings using sound and multi-screen projection surfaces.The performance mirrors the rare and complex Fata Morgana mirage phenomenon which hauntingly inverts the boundaries of figure and ground over both desert lands and seas.
SCAN | Carole Kim
Carole Kim presents SCAN, a highly textured work incorporating live performers, real-time cameras, feedback loops, soundscapes, original music scores and computer-controlled projections on a multi-planar 3D cloud-like structure that will break down the projected image into particulate fragments. This hybrid space folds the actual into illusory – producing an ephemeral environment designed to crack open our normal perceptions of spaces and containments . . . including the human body.
Free - but reservations are highly recommended!
