222Data Salon: 02 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: 02 will open on November 28, 2013 at 7 PM with presentations and a performance at 8 PM. For further event details see Eastern Bloc.

The “Looking Through Time” symposium is sponsored by the Moving Image Research Laboratory, Media and Urban Life Research Project (FQRSC), McGill Department of Philosophy, McGill Department of English, Media@McGill, and Dean of Arts Development Fund.
