CROSSROADS, Program 7: Apparent Motion–Celebrating the Art of Projection

Apparent Motion celebrates the art of live image projection‚ the cinematic exhibition apparatus exposed as a primal light and sound machine, an invention without a future, ripe for rediscovery. Working with modified or distressed film projectors as if they were musical instruments or with live manipulation (even mutilation) of projected film (or even directly with the exalted beam of light itself), Alex MacKenzie (of Vancouver BC) and the duo of Amanda Dawn Christie and Elli Hearte fuse image and sound into profound site-specific (yet cinematic) experiences. Also on the sound/image synesthesia tip is the East Bay composer/video artist Kenneth Atchley, whose jpeg navigations and sine wave compositions open the show.
