iotaSalon: EYECANDY – VISUAL MUSIC AND THE OPTICAL PRINTER

SATURDAY APRIL 30th, 8PM

DISCUSSION with FILMMAKERS BETH BLOCK AND SKY DAVID

 

The iotaCenter is proud to team up with EPFC for a night of delicious audio-visual explorations from our vault. Filmmaker Beth Block will present her new film The 108 Movements and lead a discussion on optical printing, a technique on the verge of obsolescence. Chiming in will be Sky David, showing his classic Ace of Light, inviting audience members to ask questions and share their experiences.  Our program highlights filmmakers from the classic age of experimental cinema (50s, 60s, 70s) who adopted the optical printer as a tool of experimentation and abstraction. We will also screen works by filmmakers Adam Beckett, Mary Beth Reed, Hy Hirsh and more. These eye-popping, often painterly film works share a distinct relationship to sound, one in which audio functions in service to the visual. Films will be screened on 16mm and video.

Curated by Amanda Siegel.

The iotaCenter is a non-profit arts organization founded in 1994 to preserve, share, and contextualize historically underrepresented experimental film works, with a special emphasis on abstract film, animation, and films from West Coast artists.
