A Stranger in the Street at the Edge of the Earth
A STRANGER IN THE STREET AT THE EDGE OF THE EARTH was the second in a series of cinematic explorations. The concept was based off of an early synthesizer called a Mellotron. This particular variation of the instrument consisted of a midi sequencer, a soundboard, and twelve 16mm film projectors. Each projector contained a scene culled from a film produced by Mitchell, as well as an optical audio loop produced by Stocker. The instrument and projections surrounded a sculptural environment reminiscent of a movie studio soundstage.
The initial exhibition took place May 23-July 6, 2014 at CEPA Gallery's Big Orbit Project Space. Please visit CEPA Gallery at www.cepagallery.org for additional info.
