August 25, 2008 – December 14, 2008 Rotating Exhibition
Location: Lower Level
The Black Box Theater showcases rotating exhibitions of contemporary artists who use film or video as their creative medium. Films or videos run continuously.
UK-based artists Ruth Jarman and Joseph Gerhardt, aka Semiconductor, have collaborated since 1997 on various forms of "digital noise and computer anarchy," including films, experimental DVDs and multi-media performances. The film short featured is Magnetic Movie (2007, 4.47 min.), an eye-dazzling "documentary" created during the artists' residency at the NASA Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley.
