Microscope’s exhibit “Never Twice” continues this week, with the 2nd of four live expanded cinema performances by Andrew Lampert and Rose Kallal on Sunday December 20th.

Lampert’s new “Albuquerque” involves a person, a projection, a microphone, a laptop, a table, and possibly some other objects. Recent footage of the South West shot by the artist and sound elements (music / words) are also incorporated.

Kallal’s “Aldebaran”, also from 2015, features original 16mm films of video synthesis, film and computer animation looping at varying speeds on 4 projectors accompanied by a live modular synth score by the artist. Aldebaran is a “hypnotic, nonlinear flow of repeating patterns, motifs and animations, sometimes synchronous, sometimes dissonant, that both reflect and shape the constantly shifting, deconstructive and recombinatory nature of the music.”

As part of the exhibit the artists will have access to the gallery Friday, Saturday and Sunday 1-6pm and may or may not be present during that times to set up, rehearse or otherwise prepare for Sunday’s performance. The aftermath of the performances will be on view on Monday during the same hours.
