Optipus: The Owl Flies at Twilight

Sun, Jan 15, 2017
7:30 pm

New York based collective or "media laboratory" Optipus hints at the historic demise of analog media and the wisdom resulting from this awareness in their new work The Owl Flies at Twilight, referencing German philosopher Hegel's famous quote. Three distinct movements examine specific connections between vision and sound: Psychedelic, liquid light, and other complex color compositions are paired with electronics; Figurative and photographic images are coupled with strings; Minimal uses of pure colors, flickers, and gels are accompanied by percussion elements.

The full list of film and sound artists in this expanding and contracting collective, lead by core participants Bradley Eros and Lary 7, will be announced closer to the date of the performance.
