Antarctic Art Panel at The Lab

I’m participating in an Antarctic art panel with fellow Antarctic artists Cheryl E. Leonard and Lisa K. Blatt tonight at The Lab in San Francisco. The presentation is part of the thirteenth annual Activating The Medium festival featuring two nights of performances from local and international sound artists.

Each year, the festival is curated around a specific theme that underscores connections between artists working with various methods and materials. This year’s theme is ice and its physical, geographic, metaphoric, and mythological attributes as manifested through sound and image.

The program kicks off at 8:30 PM with Cheryl, Lisa and I each giving a short audiovisual presentation about our Antarctic projects and experiences on the Ice. We’ll follow that up with discussing topics concerning art in Antarctica and answering audience questions.
