Wisp by Karen E. Cleveland

This sculpture is part of a larger installation, Wisp, a forest that requests a reconsideration of the human relationship to nature and to the woods. It requests the recognition of the energy that inhibits in and flows between all matter and all living beings. It embodies cycles the materialization/de-materialization and life/death cycles found in nature.

Karen Cleveland was raised in Atlanta Georgia and spent summers living with her aunt on the Blackfoot Indian Reservation in Montana. Her work addresses, collapses and re-imagines the relationship of humans and the natural, the magical and the everyday and the sublime and mundane. Her work has been featured in New American Paintings and in Conceptions Southwest Magazine. She has shown both locally and nationwide and has attended residencies in New Mexico, North Carolina and Vermont. She is a Winnie G. Chandler Fellow and was recently nominated for the Dedalus Grant.

Family Ties by Stephanie Dowda & John Paul Floyd

Family Ties recreates an accessible yet fleeting place where our past exists; created from Floyd family negatives, the cyanotypes are tied to helium balloons in a space where the audience can walk freely around and through these descriptive and nostalgic images.

Stephanie Dowda and John Paul Floyd work collaboratively in the photographic medium which often deals with nostalgia, preservation of memories and finding ones place in the natural world.


CLAIRE by Milford Thomas

Atlanta filmmaker Milford Thomas’s CLAIRE is a 53-minute black and white silent film shot on an antique hand-crank 35mm Mitchell Standard movie camera. The film toured internationally, opening festivals in Milan, Brussels, Montreal and the U.S., always accompanied by the “Orchestra de Lune,” a live 11-piece chamber orchestra performing an original score under the baton of composer Anne Richardson.

CLAIRE is loosely based on the ancient Japanese fable “Kaguyahime.” Thomas’ version tells the story of a charming elderly male couple in the rural 1920s South (Radical Faeries Jim Ferguson and Mish P. DeLight) that find an enchanting girl from the moon on their farm (Toniet Gallego ) and adopt her as their own.

CLAIRE was shot in Atlanta and other locations throughout Georgia, Tennessee, and North and South Carolina. Production monies were obtained through private fundraising, grants (including Dekalb Council for the Arts, Frameline, City of Atlanta Bureau of Cultural Affairs), and generous in-kind donations.

A special 10th Anniversary screening with the live “Orchestra de Lune” is slated for November 3, 2011 at the non-profit historic Plaza Theatre, Atlanta. Composer Richardson is transposing the film’s score for string quartet for presentations beginning in 2012.



Performance by gloATL

gloATL is a collaborative platform of exceptional contemporary experience. gloATL creates in a mode whose process is as important as the end result. The forum incubates fresh, original work through live performance, public intervention, and a choreographic lab. Part choreography and part interactive art installation, gloATL performances bridge the gap between artist and audience to explore the phenomena of reception, intention and interpretation.
