Experience Lab Events

October 21 @ 3 pm: Untied — A Deinstallation Event by Beth Bradfish and Connie Noyes.
The installation Untied / United is about the resilience and fragility of relationships. Ephemeral and invisible to the eye relationships bind us to each other and to life itself. During the deinstallation of this project we invite you to participate in (or watch) a ritual performance to celebrate inevitable endings. In silence, while the sound is still live, we will listen, move, interact and entwine ourselves in the threads, connecting art/audience/performer/observer in a unique shared experience. At the end of the end, we will hold a wake, with refreshments! All are invited to attend.

October 13 @ 3 pm.  Meet the Artist – Andrea De Felice with programmer/engineer Danielle McPhatter.  A presentation about Lemon Bomb Face, a mechanized light painting and a talk about how they worked together.

September 22 @3pm is Artist Day with performances by Jess Rowland and Brenda Hutchinson with the  Dailybell  Fall Equinox sunset celebration.

Jess Rowland will give a performance of her interactive Piano Roll, Life This In Find We. The piano roll, a long narrow strip of paper used originally for player pianos, will become a touch-sensitive interface for a completely different kind of musical instrument – one where the paper of the piano roll becomes the instrument itself. This piece is a semi-improvised work in which pre-determined musical material in the piano-roll will be activated by the performer, generating novel combinations of sound.

The seeds to what has evolved into Brenda Hutchinson’s current relational and public engagement practice were sown and nurtured during her early days working at Harvestworks, when it was still known as Studio PASS. Brenda will present work that first appeared on TELLUS and how it has evolved into work like the dailybell project, which we will perform this evening.

She will present excerpts of works from those early days (1980’s) when she was recording stories and songs with people in parks, streets and stories (Apple Etudes) as well as during weekly visits to Bronx State Psychiatric Hospital (Voices of Reason). During this same time, Brenda worked on the soundtrack for “Liquid Sky” and will present a recent incarnation of one of the pieces from the film, Wordplay as it appears in “Czarny film”, a short, animated piece by jacek piotrowicz released earlier this year.

Following the presentation, the audience is invited to participate in the dailybell event for the evening as we celebrate the Equinox sunset with a communal observation and bell ringing.

Sept 1 – 2 Experience Lab with Laura Splan.  Material Expressions incorporates moving sculpture and sound triggered by biosensors monitoring the artist’s heart rate as she knits exploring the potential for objects to embody corporeal experience and to materialize the unseen machinations of the human body.

August 18 and 25th @ 3 pm:  Experience Lab: Interactive Play with Pure Data conducted by artists Kat Carlson and Virginia de las Pozas.

August 11 @ 3 pm;  Meet Carla Gannis, creator of Portraits in Landscape, a new 4 channel video installation opening on August 4th at Governors Island and in the Midnight Moment in Times Square.
