Optosonic Tea at Parrish Museum

Video by Keiko Uenishi (o.blaat)

For this group performance, I set up a macro lens that recorded loops utilizing a pull focus, that were then layered repeatedly. The source material were hand-painted 35MM slides, plant clippings from the surrounding area, found-film, steel-wool, and polarized materials.

Curated specifically for the Museum’s Platform series by OptoSonic Tea founders Ursula Scherrer and Katherine Liberovskaya, the durational and site-specific group improvisation will feature visual artists performing live in different areas inside and outside of the Museum building, while live musicians and sound artists perform coordinated and spatialized works by composer and Diapason Gallery founder/director Michael J. Schumacher. Parrish Museum curator: Corinne Erni

Benton C Bainbridge, Bradley Eros, Andy Guhl, Kit Fitzgerald, Asi Föcker, CHiKA, Chris Jordan (cj), Katherine Liberovskaya, LoVid (Kyle Lapidus and Tali Hinkis), and Ursula Scherrer.

Marcia Bassett, Ranjit Bhatnagar, Shelley Hirsch, Laura Ortman, Emma Souharce, Michael J. Schumacher, Keiko Uenishi, and Shane Weeks.
