the dissolve

I completely forgot to mention that Site Santa Fe's 8th International Biennial, titled The Dissolve, opened in New Mexico recently which Brent's stop motion piece Paulina Hollers is a part of! The show is composed of 30 (!) animations- when we were down there installing Brent's solo show (an odd photo of which is pictured above) awhile ago I remember the architect for the biennial flying in to discuss his ideas & plans with the museum, expertly building out the huge space to simultaneously screen all of these pieces at once. I can't imagine what seeing an entire show comprised of thousands (millions?) of, literally, moving pictures would feel like? Each at their own frame rate, each medium mildy moving along frame by frame in a different way. I  really hope we get a chance to see the results when we go to the Southwest at the end of the Summer for the Gravity show in Arizona. At least for now I can read about how awesome it is! And, even read about Brent's piece in it too!
