Kit Young and Lori Varga are both experimental visual artists and absurdist/avant improvisers. For this very special show at Shapeshifters Cinema they will be joined by the remarkable synth/electronic music talent of Thomas Dimuzio and a very special guest. Young and Varga will present three pieces, each aproximately 15 to 20 minutes long, titled Coagulated Portraits, Stereoscopic Ridge Run, and The Anthropological Study of 21st Century Sexuality. The artists will be utilizing both high and low tech systems of digital and analog imagery to showcase their esoteric world view, using candid social commentary, human anatomy, psychedelic views on forests, and animal energies vs sexual chakuras. Tonal and dronal electronic soundscapes will accompany hand-shot and edited video and apropriated celluloid compositions. Varga and Young’s collaborative works are a fine blend of infinite improvisation and finite structure. 16mm film projectors will be stationed beside an array of modular video synthesizers and robotic armed video feedback cameras. Dimuzio and Young will share signals from their synthesizers to create rhythmic audio-visualizations.
