Thanks to all who joined on Zoom, or watched on FB Live

The Key To Time is a highly experimental and imaginative, immersive, cinematic art experience designed for 360 cinemas, domes, virtual reality headsets and other immersive formats. It offers a surreal and operatic, dream-like experience, and it bridges early cinema and virtual reality.
The Key To Time occupies a space between media arts, sound and cinema. Song and dialog elements layer over cinematic sequences filmed silently both in green screen studio settings and natural settings.

TOMORROW
Sign on as early as 11:45 AM EST to watch Holly Crawford perform from the poetry series “Voice Over” for Platforms Project
•••
Holly Crawford’s poetry performances are an assemblage of ordinary and overlooked, the casual overheard remarks to punctuation and a world now filled with instructions that are juxtaposed into new fragments that are the meat of Crawford’s of Voice Overs and Found Punctuation performances that ask you to play along. What are you going to do for Duchamp’s—after Crawford removed his words—-page filled with periods and a question mark? Get ready!
•••
The Platforms Project NET is the first interactive, independent Art Fair in the world.
AC teamed up in the past two years to exhibit work by various artists.
Thanks to @darling.pearls for helping set up this performance, as well as showcasing Holly’s other work “The Silence Drew Off, Laughing with Medusa, 116”

“From Here” by Sebastian Mahaluf

Part two of our “Here, There, Everywhere” series

“My way of reaching the world is by measuring the space surround me. This is how I build relationships with others. The problem of communication is the way we socialize. Reaching agreements means entering a different space than yours. But now how? Analyzing the relationships between the objects and bodies that occupy my space, based on measurement and experience.”

••full description and link in bio••

Unfortunately, Sebastian’s show had to be cancelled due to the pandemic, however a video of his other recent work “Desplome” is linked on our website!

Stay safe!

•••
Similarly to how spiders web over existing webs, Biagini and Niemann build up their surroundings with tape, saran wrap, thread, and violins. A sticky and woven landscape is created from man made materials, which morph into organic matter. Biagini and Niemann weave a web both sonically and visually, creating a sticky ecosystem entrapping their viewers. Like flies caught in web, viewers spectate as Cecilia & Aimée meander through the space, allowing everyone and everything to be apart of this immersive experience.

I'm pleased to say that I will showing "ReflectionOnReflection" in this show!
OPEN CALL Thessaloniki Queer Arts Festival 2019. TQAF will offer a rich and full week of art and action. Artists, researchers, educators, performers, musicians, and activists will come from all over the world to give us their insight into what is Queer, what is LOVE and how we operate within a society as being-in-love queers.
