Filmmaker John Brattin will show the completed version of Eros Is Sick, a twenty-minute Super 8 film on video with Patrick Blumer, Stephen Ward, and Dan Graff. Described by the artist as "a black and white requiem for the doomed," Brattin will answer questions following the screening.
Media artist Melanie Crean will discuss her Perception Series Projects, a series of three multi-media works on perception, politics and technology. Using sound, video and website interactivity, each of the works focuses on a specific aspect of perception as experienced by her unique subjects. The second work for example, Phrenology which was created during her Harvestworks residency, investigates the relationship between memory, writing and the perception of space, though writings created by incarcerated women.
