Saturday night I'm participating in Nocturne, alongside Isabelle Hayeur, Kelly Mark, Lucy Pullen and many others. Curated this year by Eleanor King, Nocturne is an annual free fall festival, not dissimilar to Toronto's Nuit Blanche. Galleries stay open until midnight and new commissioned installations and performances are presented throughout the city. For more information about the event, visit the Nocturne site, here.
I'm presenting two video projections, Postcript and Timeline. The latter is a 60 minute video consisting of over 500 establishing shots from cinema and television, arranged chronologically by diegetic, or dramatic time, rather than by production date. The piece begins in 17,000 BC and works its way up to the present (every year of the 19th and 20th century are accounted for) and then moves away from historical dramas to science fiction, continuing a few thousand years into the future.
The excerpted images above represent every film from the work about an artist, musician, composer or author.
