PSO and Co-Lab Projects Present: VAST IS THE SEA
January 20th through February 24, 2024
“Vast is the sea of hearing around the raft of vision.”
― Michel Chion, La Toile Trouee (Cahiers Du Cinema. Essays Collection) Vast is the Sea is a series of presentations from eight artists whose diverse works are united by their explorations of images and sound. The title comes from a translation of the composer and film theorist Michel Chion's analysis of the relationship between sound and image in cinema. In their presentations, each artist constructs new oceans through live performances, video, and sound processing. Viewers are invited to gaze at visions projected on the ceiling and swim among the sounds in real time.
All presentations are maximally 45 minutes long.
There will be a 15-20-minute intermission between presentations
Each presentation is ticketed separately except for the opening night GET SLIDING SCALE TICKETS
