Nocturnal Symmetries
2014, two 16mm projectors and live audio,
Images by Scott Stark, sound by Allison Leigh Holt, using field recordings by Byram Abbott.
“Images untethered in dream-like urban and natural landscapes, aggravated by artificial light, lost in the gap between imperfect symmetries.”

Treasures of Big House
Live performance with Scott Stark and Allison Leigh Holt
Multiple digital video projections, five video cameras including a surveillance camera, looping analog and digital sounds, various toys and noise-making devices. “A playful, manic interaction between two performers with light, shadow and sound, using toys, household objects and toiletries out of control.”
