silt: By The Sea

Headlands Center for the Arts

The collaborative film group, silt, will present an evening of live film-performance under starlight at the Marin Headlands. silt’s performances are multi-planar, extensive and intensive mosaics that “articulate complex spatial forces by integrating film and live shadow projections as paranaturalist field studies”. silt will premiere several new works created during their residency at the Headlands Center: Urphanomen, “investigations into Goethian plant morphology and kymatics”; For the Unaided Eye and Hand Lens, “a phenomenological triptych of river biota in the Sierra Nevada range”; and landsend, “cullings from magnetic fields, tectonic plates, lunar tides. Land meets sea, lenses point away and back again.” (Quotes by silt) silt has been creating films since 1990, and their work was most recently performed at The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
