Sunday, February 7th @ 7pm, join us for brand new work by Keith Evans.— “So many vectors, revectors…liminal songs, matchbooks, reports from the front and backrooms scrubbed on keys. Cinema stalks onward, leaving for a time the blackened spaces in a burned and turbulent wake. Inside the floating spell-correct of this digital campfire are invitations to other layers, other notes on our troubled time together, emanations of equivocal data that may pass on down to the underground lakes of the plasma people. Transmission is in the electric rivers too. Make incomplete of it what you will.” — Viewers are invited to tune in on February 7th at 7pm PST to watch the livestream http://www.shapeshifterscinema.com/livestream/
Sunday, January 31st @ 7pm - artist and filmmaker Kerry Laitala (San Francisco) and cinema scholar Jonathan Walley (Columbus, OH) engage in an illustrated conversation about expanded cinema, including Laitala’s recent 16mm film projection performance Fire Fly EYE (hand-processed 16mm Ektachrome and B&W film, dual projection) and the iconic paracinematic work Retrospectroscope (1996). Walley will also discuss his book Cinema Expanded: Avant-Garde Film in the Age of Intermedia, published last year by Oxford University Press, the first comprehensive historical and theoretical account of expanded cinema published since Gene Youngblood’s landmark book Expanded Cinema (1970). Laitala will also share documentation of her studio, which will be the basis for a discussion with Walley about the role of studio spaces and practices in the creation of expanded cinema works. Q&A will follow. Viewers are invited to watch this by tuning in on January 31st at 7pm PST to watch the livestream http://www.shapeshifterscinema.com/livestream/
