Holding Patterns & Collective Memories

Elise Baldwin & Kadet Kuhne in performance

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

presented in association with Overlap.org

Order advance tickets here.

Drawing from each artist’s extensive work in installation and music composition, the live audio/video performances of Elise Baldwin and Kadet Kuhne create unique cinematic experiences through the application of real-time compositional techniques. With an interest in the transmitted electronic signal (via sensors, circuitry and neurons), Kuhne uses the medium to explore themes of communication, control and confinement in her works Fight or Flight and Infinite Delay. Equally engaged with innovative technology, Elise Baldwin’s works — Theatre of Plants and The Body Farm — consider the relationships between the natural world and the evolution of technology and themes of collective memory and history. Also screening: And the Sun Flowers by Mary Helena Clark and Paradise Falls, New Mexico by Christina Battle. (Steve Polta)
