A Synesthete’s Atlas: Performing Cartography–A Lecture, Musical, and Moving Image Performance
All are welcome! Please join us at the Russell Hall Theatre for “A Synesthete’s Atlas: Performing Cartography–A Lecture, Musical, and Moving Image Performance.”
Since April 2022 Eric Theise has been manipulating projected digital maps in collaboration with improvising musicians in Europe and the United States. While constraining his project to use only web mapping technologies, A Synesthete’s Atlas is Theise’s unique approach to expanded cinema, drawing strategies from experimental film & animation, the Light and Space movement, 1960s light shows, and visual poetry.
For the second part of the evening, he will be joined by local musician The Asthmatic (Sigrid Harmon) for a short performance and Q & A.
Please note: The performance will occasionally introduce strobing effects that may affect photosensitive viewers.
This event is free and open to the public.
Light Refreshments will be served.
Co-sponsored by the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education and the Theatre Department at the University of Southern Maine.
