THE DELICATE ARCHITECTURE OF OUR GALAXY

Credits

Quintan Ana Wikswo’s films are created in collaboration with composers and choreographers, and designed for stage projection during live performance, or as installations within museum exhibition. Projected onto screens, scrims, and public spaces, the films become an interactive presence with dancers, musicians, and actors, as well as audiences and visitors. Whenever possible, the films are projected to scale, so that humans take on a proportional size within the ecologies and architectures of the filmscape.

Wikswo creates her original films through a visual vocabulary drawn from many different cameras – a combination of salvaged 120mm and 35mm still cameras and hand animations, 35mm motion picture cameras, and digital cameras using salvaged vintage lenses.

THE DELICATE ARCHITECTURE OF OUR GALAXY is a collaboration between artist Quintan Ana Wikswo (Text, Film) and composer Veronika Krausas (music).

Performance Premiere at the University of Southern California (2010).
