Mark Jeffery and Judd Morrissey / Dance Films Kino
For a Winter Fundraiser & Art Auction
Saturday December 10th 2011
at the artists house for a night of GLOW, CHEER, and Winter DELIGHT with Cocktails, Bites, Musical and Performance Entertainment and an opprtunity to view and participate in an Art Auction.
Mark Jeffery and Judd Morrissey have been invited to This is Performance Art Festival in Glasgow as well as BigScreen Plaza in NYC in 2012 with their large scale work The Precession An 80 Foot long Internet Art Performance Poem. We are needing to fundraise to take the large scale performance to these cities in the spring. The project was initially inspired by a visit to Las Vegas and the Hoover Dam in 2008. A memorial to labour in the form of an intricate New Deal-era celestial map permanently installed at the dam began a complex investigation into monuments, the worker, and astronomical phenomena including precession, the ongoing, cyclical tilting of the earth’s axis that results in changes in what we identify as the polestar over millennia. When we removed the first letter, recession remained. 5 minute Video of The Precession HERE: http://vimeo.com/27926681 and 5 minute Video INFO on the artists collaboration HERE: http://vimeo.com/31049777
