BRIAN DARR + SYLVIA SCHEDELBAUER + APHID + X73 +
We celebrate the diversity of means of personal expression in our lo-fi media landscape! OC fave Brian (Hell On Frisco Bay)Darr deploys 35mm slides, 16mm clips, VHS tapes, Glenn Waite’s home-made analog synth, and bits of Thom Andersen/Noel Burch’s Red Hollywood to tell the tale of Hollywood 10 victim Abraham Polonsky’s Force of Evil, a noir critique that turns on emerging surveillance themes. In from Berlin, trans-national kino-collagist Sylvia Schedelbauer’s Memories is an amateur b/w photo retrospective spun from a shoebox of family snapshots from mid-century Germany. In the AntikytheranMechanism, X73’s David Cox, John Smalley, and Rachel Levin weave together vocals, video, film, and music to rhapsodize on the Aegean Sea discovery of that ancient Greek astronomical clock that could forecast solar eclipses. Abram (Aphid) Stern fast-forwards though this history of thinking machines to the new mode of “generative-video” with his Unburning show’n’tell, operating on FBI aerial footage of the 2015 Baltimore Uprising to reveal hidden data-overlays “burned in” by the Bureau’s infrared sensors.*$9
