“Standing Nymph and Man” is a short film shot in and based around the physical and sonic history of the Fine Arts Building which will premiere in the Fine Art Building’s newly renovated and re-opened Studebaker Theater. It is a three year project by sound artist Milad Mozari, who as a sound artist became interested in the Fine Arts Building’s acoustics and ornamentation, and then went onto to help with the renovation of the Studebaker Theater with 3D scanning and digital fabrication. The screening weekend will entail sound and performance events which will be programmed in conversation with the film and space.

Titled after an unfinished painting installed on it’s tenth floor hallways, the project scans the current state of the building in the form of 3D footage and video to create an imaginary arc through the building’s reverberant halls. It connects the reflective surfaces and the rehearsal of music to the overall of structure of the building and narrated by employees of the building.
In conjunction with the film, there will be a series of events responding to the film through sound and performance. Friday night will be the premier of the short film “Standing Nymph and Man”. Saturday night will entail a night of experimental music, with performances by Hanna Brock, Peter Speer and Miko Szatko responding to the space and film. Sunday night is presented by In/habit Roving Art Series co-curator Mitsu Salmon in collaboration with Milad Mozari. Performances by Rachel Bunting, Elise Cowin, Guy Eytan, Josh Hoglund and Mitsu Salmon drawing from themes in the film as well as the Fine Arts Building itself.
