Odes To Me
Screening February 2013 – February 2014
Opening: First Thursday, Feb 7, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Dakota Gearhart’s Odes To Me is a way to encourage others to experience ordinary subjects in extraordinary ways. To achieve this type of sensation she has digitally manipulated her own singing voice and combined it with footage of a fish gazing through aquarium glass at her camera. Gearhart writes, “For me, this pairing of sound and image in video format is a visual experiment, one that explores the roles of vulnerability and voyeurism in how an individual relates to a group, and in addition, the emotional distance between species, class, kingdom, and the other.”
