Artist David Wilson gathers music, film, and friends at Berkeley Art Museum
The six shorts include films by Jeanne Liotta, Len Lye, and avant-garde household name (because there are so many of those!) Stan Brakhage. One of the most stunning works is Ben Russell's 2007 Black and White Trypps Number Three, which turns a mosh pit into a fugue state with epileptic, chiaroscuro-heavy visuals. "They're all films with no spoken language, and that was unintended," Goldberg tells me. He's curious about BAM-as-theater since it is "not a controlled environment for viewing films." The projector will be placed right in the audience, in BAMscape's center.
While Stewart's performance and Goldberg's handpicked film selection will not occur at the same time, they will operate in tandem, addressing the aesthetic concerns of place — and its, well, place in nature — while creating a multisensory experience: a disquieting yet provocative full-course feast for the open eyes, ears, and mind.
