Light Work Mood Disorder / He Walked Away

Performed by Jennifer Reeves and Anthony Burr in person

Visiting Filmmakers

Rising stars and acclaimed masters come to screen their films and talk with Wexner Center audiences.

Thu, Oct 18, 2007 8 PM

Join us in the Performance Space for a unique evening of live collaboration as Jennifer Reeves presents two new films, both featuring dual 16mm projections with live music by Anthony Burr.

In Light Work Mood Disorder, footage from educational films is fused (and sometimes literally sewn together) with beautifully abstract imagery created by affixing pharmaceuticals directly to the film, resulting in a poetic look at science, industry, medicine, and madness. He Walked Away layers shots and outtakes from earlier Reeves films on landscape, portraiture, and direct-on-film work in order to provide a radically new testimonial and reflection on the development of an artist. Burr’s music involves pulsating computer loops and acoustic multitonal bass clarinet. (approx. 70 mins., 16mmX2)
