HOLOSCENES is a suite of multi-format artworks inspired by flooding. The name of the project is a play on our current geological epoch, the Holocene. This video, part of the larger Quaternary Video Suite, was captured during our prototype residency for the project in July 2013 at The Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC; Troy, NY).
The full Quaternary Video Suite will be exhibited by the Pasadena Museum of California Art from January - May 2015.
The HOLOSCENES performance will premiere its various iterations — performance, installation, photography, print — beginning in 2014 at Nuit Blanche (Toronto) and culminating in 2015 at The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco). More on the project at holoscen.es
