Lucy Raven explores the nexus of old and new technologies, in projects ranging from sculptural installations and animated films to performative lectures and live television. Her work unmasks the often invisible processes, analogue and digital, that have come to define modern life. This evening, she shares a series of rarely seen test films—snippets of narrative assembled only for the technical information they contain, dating from the 1940s to today. These sights and sounds—seldom seen or heard outside of a film projection booth—tell alternate stories about the moving pictures and how we view them.
Free; no special ticketing required. Admittance is on a first-come, first-served basis until capacity is reached.
This program is presented in conjunction with the Artists Space symposium “Materials, Money, Crisis.”
