Media artist Van McElwee presents an evening of new video work, 3D animation by Casper McElwee, and new music by Rich O’Donnell and the Semi-Acoustic Noise Ensemble (SANE). In MODULAR MAZES these elements will operate as one, exploring the ancient form of the labyrinth in novel ways. 3D glasses will be provided for two of the pieces, BLUE SNOWBALLS and Y-SPACE.
McElwee’s body of work encompasses over 40 video installations and single channel works. He is the recipient of multiple awards and grants including The American Film Institute Independent Filmmaker Award and seven fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. He has exhibited his work extensively worldwide, and is currently Professor of Electronic and Photographic Media at Webster University.
