RedRum


Dates:
Fri Jan 15, 2010 00:00 - Fri Jan 15, 2010

RedRum, at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, opens on Friday January 15th in Buffalo, New York. Opening 8-11pm, show runs through Feb 26th.

RedRum, its title a reference to The Shining where a boy predicts "redrum" (murder) before a hotel elevator bursts with blood and all hell breaks loose, is a video with a haunted horror theme. The scenes take us through a cavernous home where blood - a predominant prop in horror films - drips from faucets, runs down mirrors, and pools on floors. The camera reveals it's haunted source and visits neighbouring houses that also drip with blood, suggesting a murderous streak. RedRum, filmed on location in Buffalo in winter 2009, features teenaged actors, the Buffalo Soundpainting Ensemble, and Victorian homes of local residents.

Manifestos! Revolutions!
These manifestos and revolutions are rife with language, overflowing with meaning whether social, personal, technological, environmental, or political. These calls for action and declarations of change aren't necessarily forceful or loud but public and inclusive; life-changing and performative. Though they exist as online artworks these projects all began with live offline events.

*terminal is a space sponsored by the department of art
and the center for the creative arts at austin peay state university to showcase and examine internet and new media art. the site is directed and maintained by barry jones, associate professor of art at austin peay state university
