Stream Slate #14: Kerry Laitala: Out of the Ether

Artist in live conversation with Nellie Killian

Watch TONIGHT at 8:30p ET/5:30P PT at Free, no account required to view, option to join chat.

Details on our website

Working across film, performance, sculpture, and photography, artist and media archeologist Kerry Laitala creates spectral images that bring the past into a haunted present. Laitala enlivens images of Victorian stereoscopy, whirling paracinematic wonders, and scientific illustration with color and flickering abstraction, making visible and harmonious both the symbolic and chemical languages of cinema. The program will include the following works, many in new/recent restorations:

Fire Fly EYE (2020, 7 min)
Knee Jerk (2019, 6 min)
Figments in Film (2019, 8 min)
Secure The Shadow… Ere The Substance Fade (1997, 9 min)
Retrospectoscope (1997, 6 min)
Out of the Ether (2003, 10 min)
Conjurer’s Box (2011, 4 min)

Followed by a live discussion with Stream Slate co-programmer Nellie Killian.

This screening will be archived along with other past Stream Slate programs available to our Patreon supporters at all levels.
