Artist talk with Brandon A. Dalmer December 9 at 1pm
Latitude 53 is pleased to welcome back Brandon A. Dalmer and his new work: Persistence of Vision. Inspired by syzgy, cosmic alignments, hoaxes, and Philip K Dicks’s fictional future religious practice of Mercerism, Dalmer’s monolithic octagon houses an immersive installation of audio, video loops, and lighting. Over a 108-minute orbital cycle, viewers can enter the capsule inspired by the pre-film Kaiser-Panorama stereoscopic animations and use the digital controls to experiment on images of asteroids falling endlessly towards virtual earths.
The opening reception for this work is generously supported by Barber Ha.
