What Sound Does a Color Make?

Eyebeam is pleased to present the premiere of What Sound Does a Color Make?, featuring contemporary and historical works by an internationally diverse group of artists who manipulate sound with image and image with sound. Curated by Kathleen Forde and organized by ICI, What Sound Does a Color Make? includes artists who likewise use technology to inspire a renewed consciousness of highly un-technological experiences — physicality, human cognition, and perception.

After Thought is a personality test where I interview people using flashcards and brainwave analysis to produce a custom “video mindprint”. From software-response analysis, I generate a unique 5-minute video containing symbolic imagery such as fireworks shooting into the night sky, rain beating against a window, a sleeping baby and many more. The end result is a looping video on a small LCD screen, housed in a small wooden box. People should watch their video when they drift away from their true selves to perform an emotional realignment.

Benjamin Gerdes is an artist working primarily in film and video whose work occurs at the intersection of art and activism. He frequently works in collaboration with other artists, activists, and theorists, including as a member of 16 Beaver Group. His individual and collaborative work focuses on the affective and social consequences of economic and state regimes, utilizing historical research and reenactment, dialogue, and participatory or aleatory formalizations. Gerdes' artistic practice is split between two equally important and parallel bodies of work. His work in projected installation and screen-based media use duration and spatialization to stage extended analyses of the economic and political origins of the present.

Graham Parker stopped by for a studio visit, and we had a great conversation. The highlight was when he told me to “choose my words less carefully.” In the description he writes:

First in a series of studio and show visits with contemporary artists. I’ve known Michael for some years - probably since a friend directed me to his Shop Mandiberg project. He’s recently been a research fellow at Eyebeam and is having an open studio there soon - mostly showing off work he has been producing with a laser cutter. He invited a few people along to do some studio visits in advance of that and I happened to have my camera with me when I went along. He’d set up a lot of work in one of Eyebeam’s main display spaces, so the effect was much more like a solo show than a regular studio visit.

 

Come to the Changing Labor Value panel at the New School today, Tuesday  at 5:30pm. Victoria Scott and I will be showing a portion of the No Matter — a fly-through video in the reception beforehand. I’ll be there in person!

Beirut in the 1960s

The way we were is a 4 minute clip looking at Lebanon in the days it used to be called the Paris of the Middle East. The movie highlights sites and landmarks  that used to be the staple of the country dubbed as the gem between East and West, mostly locations that have been destroyed by the war, or replaced by high rise office buildings and luxury clothing stores. The clip was part of a commission by international artist and composer Guy Manoukian, and was edited with never before seen footage from 1961 by the Baim Film foundation.
