Hey fans of film and video!
The upcoming exhibition Night Light: Multimedia Garden Party features numerous amazing experimental filmmakers and multimedia artists. Specifically, SOMArts would like to highlight the work of Kerry Laitala, who will premiere her brand new Chromadepth 3-D film titled Afterimage with musical accompaniment by local artist Wobbly (and yes, viewing these films requires the stylish glasses and all). Kerry works in the tradition of experimental cinema and also creates sculptural objects to accompany her films and art installations.
Her film Afterimage is an explosion of three dimensional color and form that brings the viewer to a new cinematic place of abstraction. Additionally, she will be providing two installation pieces, the first titled Mercurial Madness which is a 7 minute Chromadepth loop, and the second is a pseudo classic peep-show (image depicted above), using a re-purposed Victorian machine-like device and brought to life through Laitala’s signature techniques.
Additional films that will be screened by Laitala include Chromatic Frenzy and Chromatic Cocktail Extra Fizzy, both to be accompanied by live music by Bryan Von Reuter’s Cloud Archive.
So come fun and stay for the art.
More information about Laitala’s work can be found on KQED’s Spark TV, 2005.
