Data:Salon II with Alexandre Larose / Paul Raphaël & Félix Lajeunesse
Eastern Bloc Center for New Media and Interdisciplinary Art
In conjunction with “Looking through time”, Eastern Bloc will be hosting a Data:Salon with filmmakers Alexandre Larose and the duo Paul Raphaël & Félix Lajeunesse. The Data:Salon series is designed to provide emerging artists with a venue through which to present recent projects, or work-in-progress, and to gain immediate feed back from the interested public. Alexandre Larose will be presenting and performing a four-channel 16mm experimental film installation titled Aller/Retour. Larose performs the installation by running a single loop of film through all four projectors. Constantly monitoring the tension in the loop, Larose lets the film cascade across four frames, each image lagging slightly behind the other. Paul Raphaël & Félix Lajeunesse will be presenting a 3D video titled Kobe shot in Igloolik, Nunavut. A contemplative portrait of daily life, Kobe uses stereoscopic 3D to create moving image tableau with depths and volumes that fluctuate and emerge as the eye wanders through fixed long shots.
Data: Salon II will be opening on November 28th at 7pm with presentations and a performance at 8pm. The works will be installed on both the 29th and 30th from 12pm to 5pm in order to coincide with “Looking through time”.
