“Nexus Projects Us” is a satellite event of the Timeless Motion gallery exhibition currently on view at SOMArts Cultural Center through March 23rd.Timeless Motion is a celebration and convocation of the experimental moving image community that reconfigures the elements of the cinematic form to examine time, image, sound and movement. This special collaborative performance for Shapeshifters includes visual contributions by Timeless Motion artists Paul Clipson, Keith Evans, Kerry Laitala, Kathleen Quillian, Scott Stark and Mark Wilson with sound by John Davis.
Oscillating between darkness and light, stillness and movement, sound and silence, the performers, through a variety of formats and media, will use their legerdemain to conjure and transform sounds and images in a cinematic séance. Using the syntax of an exquisite corpse, the Temescal Art Center will be illuminated, haunted, fractured and activated through the synchronies of chance operations and the summoning of ephemeral, audio-visual conversations dialed in through magnetic frequencies and celluloid alchemy.
