Scott Arford / Michael A. Morris / Le Révelateur
Perpetual Motion “goes electric” for one night only with works exploring the attractive/repulsive allure of the electronic signal. Michael A. Morris’ (Dallas) presents his series of Hermeneutics (1–3)—using 16mm multi-projection, live video processing, custom software and light-sensitive electronics—in the production of real-time cinematic synesthesia. Morris’ graceful fusions are followed by Scott Arford’s (Oakland) TV–IV, an exceedingly aggressive and purgative collision of semi-compatible technologies. Audio as abstracted video image and video as audio oscillator form a dense, flickering and haunted electronic dialog. Program concludes with Hyper by Montréal’s Le Révélateur (Sabrina Ratté & Roger Tellier-Craig), an immersive and architectural audio/visual hybrid.
