Speakers: Hannah Piper Burns & DB Amorin
Location: Studio A
Ages: All ages
Dates: Feb. 22
Hannah Piper Burns and DB Amorin are local artists and curators. This spring, they’re also acting as Portland Community Media's New Media Fellows, asking questions about access and perception in the arts world, such as: who gets to speak? Why do they get to speak? How much should we trust them?
Their joint artist talk will explore these questions as they apply to both their own work and to our community.
Hannah Piper Burns plays fast and loose with the idea of mediums and materials. Her last three projects include: an interactive, video game-like digital environment navigated with two custom controllers; an experimental found-footage film about a deceased reality show contestant; and a multimedia performance structured around a live snail facial treatment.
DB works with projected images. His media projects use noise, analog video and a glitch aesthetic to mimic real-world perceptual problems, like gaps in cognition, bad translations, overlaps in physical space and failures of hearing and sight.
