Sundown (Landscape Anarchitecture Series)
Ok, you've recovered from the 4th of July weekend, now it's time to freak out to a lil overview of Carl Diehl's video works at Grand Detour.
The press release "alleges" that Diehl's work is compelled by the perpetual fissures of language, the emergent spaces between fact and fiction, and the potential of using audio-visual 'word-play' to generate novel associations and reveal previously imperceptible forms of meaning, Diehl is particularly fixated on the glitches and aberrations that sometimes disrupt the intended output of an audio-visual device. He will be screening a survey of works, including Time Out, Break of Dawn, Rock Robot:It's Edutainment and Along with Hooverball, as well as his Metaphortean Compositions. The evening with conclude with Blobsquatch: In The Expanded Field, a paranormal polemic on the perceived obsolescence of blurry sasquatches, and Patrolling the Ether, a diaristic reflection on the end of analog television.
Grand Detour itself is a newish microcinema and experimental media center committed to supporting, enhancing, and connecting the community of new media artists in Portland and beyond. Currently hosting weekly screenings and curating video work across the city, (and promisingly) "planting the seeds towards the larger goal of becoming Portland's hub for innovative video and media-related artworks."
