ITP Alum panoramic video art at Mass MoCA

This coming Saturday, April 4th is the opening of a piece I worked on called “Below Sea Level”, a panoramic video art piece about New Orleans. I provided technical and creative support for Pawel Wojtasik, the video artist, and Stephen Vitiello, the composer of the soundtrack. It’s an extremely impressive piece, both artistically and technically. It was filmed using a panoramic video camera, and is projected in the round, in a purpose-built circular theater at Mass MoCA.

It forms part of a show called “These Days: Elegies for Modern Times” (http://www.massmoca.org/event_details.php?id=416), and more information on the opening reception is here:
http://massmoca.org/event_details.php?id=462. The show is going to be spectacular, with several large scale pieces commissioned for it, and showing for the first time. It will be showing for a year, so if you cannot make it to the opening, there is still time!

I’ve written a bit about the process of creating “Below Sea Level” here:
