MCA Chicago blogs about projections for “Origins”

Check out the blog that the MCA Chicago is keeping to track all things “The Matters of Origins”. Mia Wicklund of the MCA recently interviewed me about my design for the show, and I’m really happy with the blog post she wrote. Thanks, Mia! (And thanks to Ben Wegman for the cool photo above).

“Rock Jetty” screening in Bilbao, Spain

My short film “Rock Jetty” will be screening November 14th, 2011 as part of ZINEBI 53, the International Festival of Documentary and Short Films of Bilbao. “Rock Jetty” is a visual meditation on the death of a good friend of mine who was swept into the ocean and killed on the coast of Oregon. McKell was an extraordinary person and filmmaker, and “Rock Jetty” was made as part of my process of understanding these events.

Liz Lerman’s “The Matter of Origins” at MCA Chicago Nov, 2011

Liz Lerman’s multimedia dance piece “The Matter of Origins” will be performing at the MCA Chicago Nov 10 – 13th, 2011. The show is an evening-length dance piece representing origins stories through science, particle physics, astrophysics, religion and folklore. The first act is comprised of full stage, half circle of projection screens with multimedia content throughout (that’s the part I did…). Liz and I collaborated for years up to the premiere of Origins last fall, working with scientists from CERN, Hubble, the University of Michigan, and more. We got to explore the tunnels of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, or as I like to call it “SwitzerFrance”, and the images collected there are part of what make up the design for Origins.

I’m really proud of the design of the show, and if you have a chance to check it out you should. The dancing is fierce, and the experience is thought provoking. For more info and some teaser videos, check out the MCA WEBSITE.

“Recessive” in Chicago 11/11/11

Recessive is screening in Chicago as part of Reeling: The Chicago Lesbian and Gay International Film Festival. This year marks Reeling’s 30th anniversary, and I’m thrilled Recessive will be coming home to its Chicago roots.

Recessive will screen at 9pm on Friday, November 11th at Chicago Filmmakers as part of the “It Takes All Kinds” program. Tickets and info can be found here – SCREENING INFO

Also, they have this awesome gay cat as their logo for this years festival, and I’m pretty psyched about that.
