Event Details

Keith Evans is an activist who has been working and performing in the Bay Area for 25 years. His artworks are translation systems, fascination devices, extra-cinematic experiences that reveal the phenomenon and the idea of cinema as an ecology and system, one that is unfixed and accreting, neither nostalgic nor utopian.

Collaborator Geoff Evans is an Oaklander who has been involved in many musical projects for 25 years. the mantle degassed our water is another in a series of Evans’ paranaturalist cinema systems–an arrangement of near-working and functioning pieces of electronic equiptment and formats including super-8, video arrays, record players, 3/4″ tape md cassettes casio and guitar as well as objects found in field research used to explore the paracinamatic.

Together they are a device and a hazard of set-ups that embraces the mechanical, murcurial and unique perceptual relationships between these things; their relationships in space as well as on the screen. the mantle degassed our water is evocative of the elemental transformative forces at work inside the earth. This electromagnetic device becomes a paracinematic journey to the underworld where locked within rare and highly compressed mineral arrangements is more water than resides on the surface. Stratigraphies and veils flatten and blur into highlights. Spectral screens carry the images, glaciers score a path of stained glass. Process gives way to image and process again. The sound and space integrate the vision while the key component of curiosity illuminates this fascination device.
