On Tuesday Sept. 17, 2013, at 11.30am Joseph Gallivan interviews the filmmakers Jacob Pander and Marne Lucas about their new multi-channel infrared video project "Incident Energy." They will be joined by the film's dancer and choreographer Jim McGinn.
The film opens on September 20th at Disjecta. The work deals with Nature, Culture and the Body as viewed by invasive surveillance technology.
From the press release: Incident Energy is a collaboration by Marne Lucas and Jacob Pander.
Merging our interests in surveillance technology, we are developing a multi-channel video installation filmed with heat-sensitive Thermal Imaging (IR) systems. By illuminating the actual heat of nature, culture, and the body by tracking the glowing heat/energy signatures of objects and people at terrestrial temperatures, we provide a new way of perceiving the Self.
Joseph Gallivan has been a reporter since 1990. He has covered music for the London Independent, Technology for the New York Post, and arts and culture for the Portland Tribune.
