finder ( Chris
Coleman & George Cicci )
Collusion consists of a full wall projection of industrial expulsions
that have been time-manipulated so that the vents seem to be sucking in
the smoke in rhythmic breaths. Large volumes of smoke are drawn from the
sky and then small amounts released in a continous cycle. The sounds of
machinery quickly take on a natural cadence that compels the viewer to
breath with the factory. Just when all smoke seems to have been withdrawn,
more materializes from the sky in a never ending deluge. With the constant
hope of an end the viewer unconsciously adds their breath to the effort
of controlling their surroundings.
Finder is a collaboration between sound designer George Cicci,
and video artist / sculptor Chris Coleman. While their early works
were either visuals for Cicci's soundscapes, or sound tracks for Coleman's
videos, Finder marks the full on collaboration between the two towards
Cities and sunsets screening will feature a short video excerpt of the Collusion installation.
