Blake Carrington at the Big Screen Project

As part of LISA’s partnership with the Big Screen Project, we will be showing excerpts from some of Blake Carrington‘s works during the month of May on the Big Screen at the Eventi Hotel at 30th and 6th in Manhattan.  We are excited that Blake is working with us for this project!

Blake Carrington’s Bio as of March 26th 2011:

Blake Carrington (b. 1980) operates within the spheres of the visual, sound and media arts.  His work in all of these forms is informed largely by cultural geography, landscape and architecture.  The areas between these formalized spatial practices and the experiential qualities of sound and visual art practice are the main focus of his work. He recently received a NYSCA grant in support of his debut CD release concert at the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral, and has completed residencies at HIAP in Helsinki, Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida, and Rustines Lab in Montreal. In 2009 he received his MFA from Syracuse University.  In Syracuse he co-founded the platform for outdoor projections called Urban Video Project, and last year co-curated a series for UVP featuring Trevor Paglen, Jill Magid, Thomson & Craighead, Miranda Lichtenstein and Jaume Ferrete.  His print series Loci_, exploring the questionable translation of field recordings to abstract landscape imagery, is in The Drawing Center’s Viewing Program in New York.  Blake was born in Indiana and currently lives and works in Brooklyn.

Here is the piece that will be shown:

ATS02: Solve
Blake Carrington 2008/2011

ATS02: Solve is the second in a series of synthetic topologies created from sound.  A recorded sound composition is used as raw material to synthesize visual sequences in real-time.  Using a custom software patch, the audio waveform is first drawn into the video image then manipulated into abstract imagery that suggests constantly shifting architecture and topology.  Originally created in a live performance with sound by Cory Allen, this version for Big Screen Project is silent.  The project has been further realized as a series of still prints titled Loci_.

May’s Leaders in Software and Art choices (a 40-min. loop that plays three times through in a two hour period), including works by Phillip Stearns, Erik Sanner, Deborah Johnson and Blake Carrington, will show on the Big Screen at the following times:
