Okay, it turns out I lied...sorta. I'd said in my earlier post today that I'd seen my first Cinema Project presentation back in 2008. Not at all true. Having mentioned Janie Geiser in that previous entry, I began thinking about a TBA (Portland's annual Time-Based Art festival) presentation of her work that I'd seen not long after returning to Oregon from Berkeley. Turns out that event was co-curated by Cinema Project & PICA. So a correction is in order. Me and Cinema Project...we go waaaayy back...to 2004.
Here's a link to the promotional page for The Emotional Lives of Inanimate Objects, Ms. Geiser's career-long retrospective program from '04. She was in attendance at the event and what she had to say was greatly inspiring to my own process, even though my work shares little in common with hers.
And here's a couple samples of that work:
Remember, Cinema Project still needs help making their programming and operational budget for this and next season. Anyone interested in kicking in some much needed funds should head here immediately. These folks do great work and only have 8 days remaining in their online funding campaign. With Kickstarter campaigns, it's all or nothing, so help out if you can!
