North Room:  

Jeff Shore and Jon Fisher 

May 21-July 3, 2009 

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 21, 6-8 pm 


Texas-based collaborative artists Jeff Shore and Jon Fisher present a new site-specific multi-media installation.  Constructed from wood, wires, lights, and motors, this piece includes seven mechanized cameras filming self-contained miniature film sets.  The sound components are created through an automated string instrument and a computer which writes algorithmic compositions in real time. Complex, poetic, and captivating, Shore and Fisher's work explores the relationship between cinema and music, as well as commenting on human interaction with new technologies. 


Jeff Shore and Jon Fisher's work is currently featured at Western Bridge in Seattle.  Their large-scale installation Reel to Reel traveled to The Kemper Museum, Kansas City, and The Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC.  It will open at The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art later this year.
