Ken Nintzel (2009 Performing Arts) is premiering his Creative Capital-supported project, You Are Here, with an installation in the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Lepercq Space as part of the BAM Next Wave Festival. You Are Here is a modular installation that recreates the constellations of the night sky in physical form, as they are depicted in celestial atlases, and suspends them overhead to create a life-size stellarium. Each animal and human constellation figure has embedded LED lights plotting the stars that make up the constellation. In natural light, viewers experience the three-dimensional animal and human forms; as the light fades, the figures recede into silhouette and the star patterns emerge. Continue reading

As part of our “Artist to Artist” interview series, choreographers and long-time artistic collaborators DD Dorvillier (2013 Performing Arts) and Jennifer Monson (2000 Performing Arts) sat down to discuss Jennifer’s recent performance project, Live Dancing Archive, which she presented at The Kitchen in February 2013. The following is an excerpt from their conversation.
DD Dorvillier: To start, I thought I would take on something you wrote to me: “I am interested in the possibility of the body as an archive on multiple scales at once both temporal and spatial, human and adjacent to human—the particularities of experience as something that is impermanent and leaves multiple kinds of traces, and the relationships of transmission and reception in the sound scores, in the dancing and the audience.” This idea of the possibility of the body as an archive on multiple scales—do you think of this as a metaphor, or is it an actual practice, or is it something in between? In other words, what does the body as an archive LOOK like or FEEL like? Continue reading

On Saturday, September 28, Rick Prelinger (2012 Film/Video) celebrates the New York premiere of his Creative Capital-supported project No More Road Trips? in the Convergence program at the New York Film Festival. Artfully assembled from thousands of home movies and amateur films, No More Road Trips? explores the highways and byways of a period in American history that may well be in our rearview mirror. Focusing on road culture and the question of whether we, as a nation, may have reached “peak travel,” No More Road Trips? is a perpetual work in progress—an interactive movie-going experience that can only be completed when you, the audience, lend your voice to provide the soundtrack and narration.
