experimental film screening – CA

posted February 17, 2010

our lovely friend and former intern Anya passed this notice on.

My stepfather Paul Clipson is an accomplished experimental film maker, and his most recent film, which I was lucky enough to take part in, will be in this Saturday’s “Apparent Motion” fest at the Victoria Theatre in San Francisco. Come see a post-psychedelic, visually saturated show that will change the way you see the urban landscape. The details are below; the film is in Program two, at 8pm. Hope to see you there,

Anya

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), the artists presented over this weekend fuse image and sound into profound site-specific (yet cinematic) experiences—dazzling light works suggesting a paradoxically concrete form of sound/image synesthesia. From afar we welcome Abject Leader (Sally Golding & Joel Stern); Sandra Gibson and Luis Recorder (with local sound artist Adam Sonderberg); Karl Lemieux and Hyena Hive; and Bruce McClure, who will each present multiple works in the company of local artists CinePimps (Alfonzo Alvarez & Keith Arnold); Kerry Laitala and Michael Proft; Paul Clipson and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma; and Keith Evans. Collectively, this coterie of laudable lens-crafters will present a series of one-of-a-kind works assured to activate the exhibition space with bristling energy. It will be a weekend guaranteed to traverse the erotically sublime, confoundingly absurd, materially metaphorical and sensorial assaultive. Clearly, something for everyone is this mercurial menagerie.
