Filmmaker Darrin Martin in Attendance

Friday, August 13, 7PM

Location: DiverseWorks, 1117 East Freeway

$7 Non-members; Aurora members free

For once, we encourage you to bring your cell phones to a screening so that you can participate in an evening of new video performance, as well as solo and collaborative video works from Darrin Martin. Failed utopias, technologic euphoria, role-playing workshops, hearing loss, the nature of sound, and other actualities often inaccessible to the naked eye are playfully addressed in this presentation by Darrin Martin. Fantasy and delusion through a language of disjointed architectural ruins and sculptural remains fuse with his current research into ubiquitous technologies in a premiere of the video-performance, Fragments. A screening of his most recent solo works and collaborations with Torsten Zenas Burns, an experimental video artist, will precede the performance.

Darrin Martin is a Bay Area artist whose works loosely examine how technologies are used in an attempt to measure and augment our daily perceptions. Martin’s collaborations with Torsten Zenas Burns build diverse speculative fictions around re-imagined educational paradigms. Martin has toured his work nationally and internationally. He occasionally curates screenings and teaches video and media arts at UC Davis. www.darrinmartin.com
