Joe Grimm: Transitions

@ Gallery 400

400 S Peoria St, Chicago, IL 60607

Opening Wednesday, October 20th, from 7PM - 8:30PM

Transitions is a new piece of music arranged for multiple TV monitors. In this work, Grimm extends some of the ideas from past work with 16mm audiovisual performance to the realm of digital video. It is a senseless but ecstatic exploration of the prefab geometry that is always already present in video-editing software in the form of cheesy cuts, wipes, and fades. In this controlled explosion of the standard “bars and tone,” Grimm constructs a sonic and visual experience that is paradoxically image-free, consisting solely of a kind of weaving of the tools that we use to transition from one image to another.
