Short Description: 
Vanessa Renwick talks about her new show

 Listen to the interview here.

Vanessa Renwick was our guest. She has a show up at the New American Art Union called House of Sound. The installation comprises of: 2 channel audio, 35mm film to video, plexiglass, metal, candles, couches, lamps, speakers, rug, record stand, a turntable and a record collection the viewer is encouraged to play - if, that is, they care to stop listening to the fairly freewheeling and happy audio of the video, conversations about the House of Sound, a building and business in NE Portland torn down in 2008. The audio is a real contrast to the footage. Renwick creates haunting art out of the documentary film, works which are often site-specific and interactive. She is also known as the founder of the Oregon Department of Kick Ass.
