DAVID IAN BELLOWS/GRIESS: "until the batteries are dead"
2-8pm Saturday, July 15 at Panoply Performance Laboratory
2-8pm Sunday, July 16 at Panoply Performance Laboratory
All-day Sunday, July 23, screening at Grace Exhibition Space
"until the batteries are dead" employs dog masks, camcorders (with a finite amount of battery life) and sights/sites (camcorder operators, static objects, moving bodies, public, and private).
Meet at PPL to sew dog masks, make videos as a group in public locations, screen videos on the last day of the convention.
until the batteries are dead information and schedule:
Can video documentation amplify the reach of a performance or only commodify it?
Which performances should be documented and who decides?
Will processing and organizing of raw footage with a machine learning algorithm yield any insight or beauty? Is there any way to avoid appropriation of the images of others or is a sterile art object devoid of context or spirit inevitable?
