Stephen Ratcliffe: Remarks on Color / Sound

Remarks on Color / Sound
Type: Music/Arts - Performance
Date: Sunday, May 16, 2010
Time: 6:00am - 8:10pm
Location: Headlands Center for the Arts
Street: 944 Fort Barry
City/Town: Sausalito, CA

DescriptionRemarks on Color / Sound is a 14-hour piece, which explores collaborative work in a variety of mediums and is based on a reading by Stephen Ratcliffe of his poem by the same title (written between 7.15.05 and 4.8.08 – 1,000 pages in 1,000 consecutive days). Utilizing sound, light, movement and sculpture in an open dialogue with the architecture of the surrounding space, this performance extends investigations into the integration/interaction of human beings and natural landscape begun in our 2008 performance, HUMAN / NATURE, at UCDavis: "the relation between things seen/observed in the natural world and how such things might be made (transcribed/transformed) as works of written (or visual) art."

Remarks on Color / Sound will take place in the Gym Studio at Headlands Center for the Arts, where Thingamajigs’ cofounder Edward Schocker is currently an Artist in Residence. The performance will be held on the same day as the 2009/ 2010 Graduate Fellows Exhibition opening, which takes place in Building 944 (3rd Floor) on the Headlands campus. Headlands Center for the Arts hosts an internationally recognized Artist in Residence program, as well as interdisciplinary public programs, aiming to create dialogue and exchange that build an appreciation for the role of art in society.
