Persistence of Vision: Antarctica

 

Persistence of Vision: Antarctica

 

Trish Suchy and Vince LiCata are having a SciArt exhibition of video portraits they made in Antarctica. The video installation will take place in the HopKins Black Box Theatre in 137 Coates Hall from Thursday, March 16—Sunday, March 19.

In the exhibit, historic photos from Robert Scott's South Pole expedition in 1911 are re-staged with modern researchers and staff in Antarctica today, making a series of time-altered "video-portraits" (some are ultra slow motion, some are sped up, and so forth). The exhibition is open 7:309:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and 2:304:30 p.m. on Sunday.

The show is a gallery style art show that you walk through and look at (if you stop and watch everything it should take 3060 minutes, but it's designed so you can spend as little or as much time as you like). You can reserve a time at: https://goo.gl/LUXdUq if you'd like. It is not required, but, if too many people are there, entrances will be regulated so that the room doesn't get overly crowded. People with reserved times will get preference if that happens. Admission is free. An optional donation will be accepted at the door.
