CIRCA Catalyst is an ongoing series promoting conversations around transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary research that fuses the performing and visual arts with other fields of inquiry and scholarship. A catered lunch, with vegetarian options, will be provided by CIRCA (the Center for Innovation, Research and Creativity in the Arts).
UMBC associate professors Stephen Bradley, Visual Arts, and Lisa Cella, Music, will present on their recent collaborative “deep-listening — deep seeing” performance, combining video projection and flute performance.
Steve Bradley’s time-lapse video work explores a meditative perspective that features quotidian events. By slicing time into precise visual moments, the video presents the listener/viewer with an illuminated focus on the familiar. Interweaving Bradley’s visual “curiosity of motion” with the aural compositions performed by Lisa Cella, an expansive work of art is constructed. This collaboration engages our capacity for deep listening and seeing. It opens one door of perception and reveals a pattern language comprised of fractals and synesthesia, leading us to apprehend the ineffable.
Lisa Cella and Stephen Bradley will follow with a full performance program at 4:00 p.m in the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery. Click here for complete information.
