An Evening of Light and Sound
Join us for two performances of light, projection, music and sound with Felker, Lori and Litesalive. This event is in conjunction the exhibition Light and the Unseen.
The first performance will feature Felker, Lori’s Light Makes Music, a presentation of light as it passes through moving 16mm film and bumps into dirt, tape, gunk and emulsion on its way to the ear. You are invited to get lost in audible opticals, loop-de-loops, and a collision of noise and music. Lori Felker is an artist and filmmaker whose work focuses on the ways in which we process, share, and disseminate information, via screens, dreams, gestures, games, and dialog. By employing and pushing these structures, she attempts to study the ineloquent, oppositional, delusional, frustrating, and chaotic qualities of human interaction. Felker works in a variety of mediums and has shown her work internationay at festivals and spaces including the Rotterdam International Film Festival; NYFF: Views from the Avant-Garde; VideoEx, Zurich; Ann Arbor Film Festival; Festival du Nouveau Cinema, Montreal; Curtas Vila do Conde Film Festival, Portugal; Glass Curtain Gallery, Chicago; LA Filmforum; BAMcinemaFest, Brooklyn; Space Gallery, Pittsburgh. She is an Illinois Arts Council Artists Grant recipient, a Wexner Center Artist in Residence and a Fulbright Fellow. She is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois Chicago.
