In 1872, the former governor of California Leland Stanford hired photographer Eadweard Muybridge to prove that all of a horse’s hoofs left the ground while running. After validating Leland’s hypothesis, Muybridge further developed his study of the motion of horses. In 1978 he created one of the first steps toward a moving image by placing 24 shutter-controlled cameras to record the galloping of a horse.
Accompanying this screening will be a live score by Kite and Devin Ronneberg.
Kite, aka Suzanne Kite; an Oglála Lakȟóta performance artist, visual artist, and composer raised in Southern California. Her performances, compositions, sculptures, and sound installations showcase the use of experimentation in new media and digital technologies that touch on issues such as non-human and human intelligence, the ethics of extractive technologies, and software design. Recently, Kite has been developing a body interface for movement performances, carbon fibre sculptures, and immersive video and sound installations, as well as co-running the experimental electronic imprint, Unheard Records.
Devin Ronneberg is a multidisciplinary artist born, raised, and living in Los Angeles. Working primarily in sculpture, sound, image-making, networking, engineering, and computational media, his work is currently focused on the unseen implications of emergent technologies and artificial intelligence, information control and collection, and the radiation of invisible forces. Ronneberg co-founded the Los Angeles underground imprint Private Selection Records, and produces, djs, and performs live under the Aerial moniker.
This screening will take place via YouTube live stream.
