Dates: August 25-26, 2012 Location: Rockaway Beach Dillon de Give's Long Walks on the Beach provides a framework to literally enact a cliché with a stranger. This is the first in a seasonal series of dual stranger walks in affiliation with The Walk Exchange and Flux Factory, as part of Flux's upcoming Fall 2013 exhibition, Untitled (As of Yet).
Fluxer Jaime Iglehart will present her most recent film, a post-apocalyptic slapstick video: Bodega Chips. Current Flux Artist-in-Residence Theodoros Stamatogiannis will discuss his body of work. Eric Bowman will give a demonstration of the wet plate collodion photographic process by making his own film (from scratch) on a glass plate, shooting the photograph with his camera from the 1870s, and developing the image all within the span of 15 minutes. Mark Bolotin will talk about making his strange new multimedia work, The Lumiphonic Creature Choir, a giant twelve-headed audio-visual creature that will come alive, sing, and recite prose. Alan Webber of The Rural Route Film Festival will present two exclusive short films: Compound Eyes #1 & Painting John.
