‘Panoramas’ in Philadelphia

by Nick Montfort · , 4:13 pm

Panoramas and Other Circular Stories
Esther M. Klein Gallery
3600 Market St, Philadelphia
January 12- March 31, 2007

Opening reception 5:30pm-8:30pm Friday January 12

[Sorry for the late notice about the opening, which starts in little more than an hour. The show is up until April, though!]

Circularities, repetitions and technological breakdowns are the themes of Roderick Coover’s multimedia show, comprised of six video works that incorporate layered photographs, audio, language and manipulated video recordings. Playing with text/image relationships, these works create strange stories that loop upon themselves and examine the ideas of travel and time in order to evoke ways that technology permeates the modern imagination.

The works in this exhibit are the result of unique collaborations between the artist and authors Deb Olin Unferth and Nick Montfort. Please join us the night of the opening for a special reading by featured writers.
