Mar 14, 2014

Acclaimed Canadian artist Michael Snow is featured in Corpus Collegium, a presentation of Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts & Technology and the Open Media Lab.

Snow is a pioneering multi- and cross-disciplinary creator whose works in painting, sculpture, video, film, photography, holography, drawing, books and music have been seen around the world.

Screening:
12 to 1:30pm
Screening of Michael Snow's groundbreaking experimental film Corpus Callosum (2002), winner of  the Independent/Experimental Film and Video Award from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association.

The corpus callosum is a central region of tissue in the human brain that passes "messages" between the two hemispheres. Corpus Callosum, the film (or tape, or projected light work) is constructed of, depicts, creates, examines, presents, consists of and is, "betweens". Between beginning and ending, between "natural" and "artificial", between fiction and fact, between hearing and seeing, between 1956 and 2002. It's a tragi-comedy of the cinematic variables. - Michael Snow
