(CCA) | Brilliant Universe
An installation project that features three short audio/visual experimental films as part of a series titled BRILLIANT UNIVERSE. Each film is projected onto a large silk tapestry treated with iridescent mediums and gold leaf to create a painterly, dream-like video experience. They are played one after the other and looped. We are installing this piece at a new art space in Santa Fe called The Poetry Yard in April of 2022, where people will be invited to watch the screenings and participate in a joint ritual. Within this collaboration, Margaret Thompson documents performance narratives on film, and heavily edits them for a surrealist quality. Siddhartha composes musique concréte scores of experimental audio to accompany and set the tone for the film's unfolding.
