Kenneth Zoran Curwood (b. 1971 NYC) is a Brooklyn based artist working in film, animation and sculpture. He received a BA (concentration in Sculpture) from School of Visual Arts in 1995. His 16mm films combine traditional animation practices (cel, rotoscope, stop-motion) with many bygone special effects techniques (slit-scan, optical printing, tinting, toning). He has exhibited his work at Anthology Film Archives, Canada, Union Docs, Monkeytown, Secret Project Robot, Vaudeville Park, CREAM Gallery, and Heliopolis. He has taught workshops at Columbia University and Camera Club New York.
DOUBLE TROUBLE is the expanded cinema projector performance duo of filmmakers Andrew Lampert and Fern Silva. Each performance unveils a new double projection piece focused on something they came up with at the very last minute. If you are the police or the district attorney, Andrew Lampert and Fern Silva kindly request that you not attend this show. Their piece features footage that should have never been filmed and which might lead to significant legal trouble. That said, it should be pretty fun.
