Save Event: James Brown - Doom

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:



James Brown will build a series of partial film sets in the Gallery of superficially domestic scenes. Each set will be fabricated to allow various forms of kinetic sequences to be staged for camera (such as a bottle of milk falling over, plaster dust falling from around a light fixture, a pen rolling off a table, a television losing its signal etc.) these actions will approximate cliché scenarios of imminent disaster as fictionalised in popular culture; specifically in Disaster genre film such as The Poseidon Adventure Earthquake Towering Inferno, and Jurassic Park. A series of staged sequences will be filmed and transferred to custom video editing software, that will select between individual scenes to author an abortive disaster film; a fragmented narrative that is continuously threatening to escalate, but is not capable of narrative resolution. Edited sequences will be shown in Gallery 2 and on the Projection Window.
