March 26th: Adventures in Video Art

Anne Spalter’s “Bora Bora_ Sunset” video, running on a framed 55” screen

Join Anne Spalter as she talks about her exciting work involving art and technology. Her video pieces are based on original footage shot in remote locations, from moving vehicles. Be prepared to see adventure, the unexpected, and serendipitous moments that you would’t expect. Anne will show material from and discuss the backstories of several works, as well as some of the computer-based methods of creation.

The pieces are location, weather, and time-specific videos shot from cars, high-rise buildings from the air, and underwater. These images fold in on themselves and abstract forms and patterns emerge.

When: Wednesday, March 26th, 7:30pm
Where: Boston Cyberarts Gallery, 141 Green St.,  Jamaica Plain, MA
Presenters: Anne Spalter
Free event
RSVP to Space is limited.
