A Project by Emily Beattie & Eric Gunther
July 18-29, 2017
Performance: Friday, July 28, 6-7pm, drop in anytime
Open afternoons and every evening of the Stony Brook Film Festival
Dancer Emily Beattie and media artist Eric Gunther team up to create an interactive film installation called ROLLING POINT. Multiple large projections create an immersive environment exploring the resonance between our bodies and the bodies we watch on screen. Through interactive technology, visitors’ movements are linked with the movements of a dancer on film. An electroacoustic soundscape swells as visitors move with the film.
The Zuccaire Gallery will have special extended hours during the Stony Brook Film Festival, presented by Island Federal Credit Union. The Gallery will be open all ten evenings of the Film Festival from July 20-29. Stop by on Friday, July 28 anytime between 6 and 7pm for a special performance to see dancer Emily Beattie interact with the video projection. Free.
The Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery is located on the first floor of the Staller Center for the Arts at Stony Brook University. Admission is free.
ROLLING POINT and the 2016-2017 Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery schedule are made possible by a generous grant from the Paul W. Zuccaire Foundation. Additional funding is provided by the County of Suffolk and the Friends of Staller Center.
