This event has ended.

"The Fourth Space" by Cecilia Dougherty comprises impressions of place from several angles: a straightforward record of unrehearsed daily life in four specific locations (The Third Space); a low-tech microcosm revealing the horror of necessity (The Third Interval); an attentive regression into spiritualism at Brighton Beach (Tetragrammaton); mining desire from the endless imaginary architectures of freely downloadable 3D modeling software (The Scenography); and, finally, from the unreality that is realism to a reopening of the spaces within a universe of analog video (The Fourth Space).

"Moving Parts" by Aleksei R. Stevens is a six-channel generative sound installation based on the rhythms and resonances of the built environment. The source sounds fall into three categories: “close-up” recordings of building noise (humming fans, buzzing lights, municipal water, chugging machinery, etc.), wide stereo ambient recordings of public spaces throughout New York City, and recordings of instrumental improvisations inspired by these field recordings. The installation continually combines and recombines these sounds in real time according to a set of behavioral patterns, resulting in an ever-changing texture. The complete work includes a performance element, a graphic score for small ensemble.
