Locative Media: The Projected Edifice
Thursday, November 29, 2012 - 7:30pm
Presented by San Francisco Film Center and San Francisco Cinematheque
Ninth Street Independent Film Center
145 Ninth Street
San Francisco,

In collaboration with his Locative Media film class at SFAI, video projection artist and SFAI faculty member Ben Wood—known locally for large-scale public displays on Coit Tower and within Mission Dolores—creates an architectural video installation at the Ninth Street Independent Film Center. Using the building’s screening room, façade and frosted front windows, Wood and his SFAI students will present a collaborative video and performance event that enlivens the architecture while evoking voices and stories from submerged and forgotten persons, histories and cultures. The group will transform the building’s edifice with projected narratives from both within and without.

This event is part of a series of projections Wood and his class are executing on buildings around San Francisco, including a staged installation at Lumen Alley during Polk Street Art Walk last month.

Purchase tickets today! $5 for Cinematheque members and $10 for non-members.
