Roy Lichtenstein’s Three Landscapes

View (shaky) excerpt on youtube - but you get the idea of how magnificent the imagery and the relationship between each screen in the installation.

"Three Landscapes, a little-known triple screen film installation by Roy Lichtenstein, unseen since its showing at the Los Angeles County Museum in 1971 as part of the groundbreaking exhibition Art and Technology. The result of a short residency at Universal Studios in Hollywood, the films, newly restored by the Whitney on their original 35mm format, are testimony to Lichtenstein’s experimentation with form and his fascination with cinema."

The Gothic Multimedia Project announce their latest multimedia opus project entitled “Beneath the Snow – Piovono Ombre” (“Piovono Ombre” meaning “It Rains Shadows” in Italian). It is an interactive movie featuring musical, artistic and lyrical contents and it's the fruit of the complex work of a team of 28 musicians, artists, actors, graphics, technicians who collaborated under the direction of James Maximilian Jason and David Bosch.

The film itself is partly comprised of musical-art tracks and partly of dialogues in Italian with English subtitles.

See: SFMOMA website: https://www.sfmoma.org/exhibition/janet-cardiff-forty-part-motet/

Article by Sam Devine on: "INCREDIBLE SOUND INSTALLATION VIA SFMOMA & FORT MASON CENTER" SFMOMA’s

"The digital choir swells and the room floods with relaxation. Male and female voices ring out in a swirling chord as loud as if the singers were standing where the speakers are placed. Then a sudden rest pierces the room with startling silence."

"The 40 Part Motet, currently on display at Fort Mason Center until January 18, is a rare mixture of musical performance and physical art installation. It straddles not just definition but also affect. Close your eyes and it’s virtual reality for the ears, revealing what it’s like to be in the midst …

Edmund Burke and the sublime



"Some things that move us are beautiful, others are sublime. But the sublime moves us more profoundly than the beautiful. See how Edmund Burke tied the experience of the sublime to the possibility of pain and how the idea went on to influence the artistic Romanticism movement. Voiced by Harry Shearer. Scripted by Nigel Warburton."

Theatre of Speaking Objects - Project Arts Centre, Dublin

Interesting exhibition taking place in the Project Arts Centre in Dublin, Ireland called "The Theatre of Speaking Objects", even the title is so evocative.

The Theatre of Speaking Objects by Czech artist Eva Kotátková 

"Theatre of Speaking Objects knits together extraordinary, poignant and personal accounts of complex relationships with language. Eva Koťátková has gathered stories and remembrances from around the world, and located them within a cast of used objects and therapeutic props, things that are used to speak for the subjects – subjects who sometimes cannot speak for themselves – becoming mediators and containers for human voices and personal stories."

Links and Resources - September 2013

September 2013 has been a very busy month from personal to PhD work and more! Moving house and a protracted close of sale.  An amazing MOCAP workshop in Helsinki, Finland and a paper presentation in Tampere, Finland.  The 3rd DAH Institute in Derry, or should I say stroke city as locals there sometimes call Derry. A poetry book launch and reading by Catherine Culleni in the Trinity Long Room Hub, a screening programme of Synthesis 2 by Fractal music at the IFI, a one day visualisation workshop with Sarah Kenderdine in the Trinity Long Room Hub, negotitations re a lecture on the work of the CVM to be held in the ATRL, back teaching on MMT. A book to review by Nuno Correla (really looking forward to that). Birthdays and meet ups.. and lots of not returned emails, which I must do in October..it has been intense.  In the middle of this, a kind of disinterested browsing of resources and sites I have come across and so to try to capture some of these browsing links so I can come back to the…
