|Axiom Artists' Talk
Axiom Center for New and Experimental
Media presents an Artist Talk for "What
Stands Between Us and the Sun," the
newest project from the Rhode
Island-based artist team of Megan and
"What Stands Between Us and the Sun" is
a new photo, installation, and video project. In a warehouse in Central Falls, RI, the
McMillans built an artificial lake in an
invented world where performers alter the
lake's structure to fabricate an eclipse of
the sun. The work shown at Axiom is an installation containing video, photography and elements that are made from, and refer to, the set created in Rhode Island.
Megan and Murray McMillan have been collaborating since 2002. Their projects begin with the building of a theatrical set, acting as a stage for video and photography production. The moving compositions use an elegant, loosely narrative language of dolly shots, fluid camera movements, and ethereal theatrical lighting. The resulting video is shown as part of a related installation that employs the visual and thematic elements from the original set.
The artists will discuss the work and take questions on Tuesday, November 9 from 7-9 pm. For more information, visit the Axiom website.

The John Nicholas Brown
Center at Brown University presents liminal/subLiminal
a multi-media sound installation by Lyn Goeringer that incorporates videos of streetlights, amplified sodium
halide lamps, and field recordings.
In process for over a year, Goeringer has taken videos of streetlights and the concrete under them as the lights turn on at dusk throughout Providence, Rhode Island to create her sound + video installation liminal. In addition to liminal, she has also created subLiminal, a room filled with amplified sodium halide lamps, flickering and fluttering as they buzz in time with their flickerings.
The show opens with a reception on November 4th from 6-8 pm.
