About the Event
As a convergence of film and its place within the history of the American West, we are co-presenting a live stream screening of the motion studies of Muybridge with Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
These early motion pictures contain a spirit of the moment and spectral quality of the moment in which they were captured. Accompanying this screening will be a live score by Kite, aka Suzanne Kite; an Oglála Lakȟóta performance artist, visual artist, and composer raised in Southern California. Her performances, compositions, sculptures and sound installations showcase the use of experimentation in new media and digital technologies that touch on issues such as nonhuman and human intelligence, the ethics of extractive technologies, and software design. Recently, Kite has been developing a body interface for movement performances, carbon fiber sculptures, immersive video and sound installations, as well as co-running the experimental electronic imprint, Unheard Records.
Presented in collaboration with
