Hey Henry enthusiasts, just an update that the date for our upcoming program, Multi-Media Talk: Anastasia Yumeko Hill When Image Fondles the Tongue (and other experiments), has changed and will now talk place on Thursday, August 23 at 7pm. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you in August! You can still reserved tickets for this performance online here.
“One of the two big works that’ll remain up for the show’s duration, The Psychedelic Gedankenexperiment immediately teases your brain into up/down, left/right confusion. Some kind of nutty professor (actually Hill) is giving a lecture on a pair of video screens, but his words register as gibberish or Esperanto. His movements are herky-jerky and unnatural. It’s like a nightmare flashback to freshman-year Physics 101—and you don’t understand a word he’s saying! But wait, maybe you’re not dreaming. Maybe you’re not high. Sit on the weird foam stools, put on the 3-D glasses, and you may recall the backward-talking dwarf dream in Twin Peaks. The phonetic companion text on the wall (LSD is “the most powerful and in time the most influential work of art throughout all of history”) helps translate the 22-minute videos—only one, actually, synchronized on the two screens.”
