ChromaKitten Presents:

A Taste of a Projector Performance-Documentation Generously Recorded by Neal Johnson and David Cox
Sound Collaboration Between John Davis & Kerry Laitala

Polychromatic light waves caress the corneas and travel via the occipital lobes through corpuscular connections…. Spectrums of undulating, spinning refractions of forms move through space… the Chromacinekaleidoscope creates light sculptures tangible and tasty…One becomes immersed in momentary molecules of elusive color, staining the wall palate to divide slivers of space into charged shards of time. The threshold of awareness melts into the fabric of luminous energy, which radiates from the lens through reflective mirrors as the apparatus through which one spies becomes the vehicle for re-compositions to scatter through space, colliding with the screen/eye/mind. Laitala manipulates the splintered, celluloid imagery in real time pulling the ephemeral image like taffy through the space and bringing out shimmering refractions of lustrous luminance. Reverberations of a trickle of cloud sounds patter the tympanum in time with the rhythm of the light.

Media Used: 2-16mm projectors, Chromacinekaleidoscope, Hand-Made soundtrack & collage collaborative sound by John Davis. This work is an Homage to Jordan Belson, Oskar Fischinger & Paul Sharits
