With works by Caroline Burghardt + Amanda Tiller, David B. Smith, and Audra Wolowiec
Arts@Renaissance, 2 Kingsland Ave, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (off Graham L stop)
Double Oval Fantasy presented by David B. Smith. This piece layers Bob Ross's monotone yet supportive voice with two spotlights that shift hue and position according to his use of paint. The image from the 200th episode of The Joy of Painting is removed, opening a space of possibility and imagination. The large room, filled with Ross' voice triggering shifting colored lights provides a chance for meditation on creativity, positivity, and loss.
Listening Loops presented by Audra Wolowiec
What does it sound like to listen? Can you hear someone hearing?
Interdisciplinary artist Audra Wolowiec will present a participatory event that explores listening through altered medical devices. This experiment in connective listening both join and separate while allowing participants to hear internal sounds just below the surface.
To Be Determined: Caroline Burghardt and Amanda Tiller present a mash-up collage musical movie, the narrative of which is drawn from classic Disney romances. The original songs will be replaced with well-known songs taken from other live-action musical movies. This video performance is a revision of our childhood notions of love seen through our jaded adult eyes. Audience members are encouraged to join in and sing along. BYOB encouraged, popcorn provided. (screening at 8:30 & 9:30 pm)
