3/14 Lineup:

  • Tommy Becker
  • With special guests Steev Hise and Jon Leidecker

Tommy Becker returns to Shapeshifters to present “Emotions in Metal,” a twenty minute visual concept album that continues the artist’s investigations into expanded storytelling using video, music, poetry, performance and computer-generated design. The nine short works link thematically in their investigations into human-vehicle relationships. Whether, acting out instructional poetry in the garage, documenting the interiors of strangers’ cars or celebrating art world connections to the road, the video work balances playful humor with a critical eye on where society is currently parked. Steev Hise and Jon Leidecker will open the show with a short 20-minute set titled “I WANT TO SAY” exploring the cybernetic possibilities of expanded cinema, special brains and motivated reasoning.

Please note that this event is happening on Saturday and not the usual 2nd Sunday event.
