Lyra Hill Performance @ SAIC
From the SAIC blog: ‘Comics artist and filmmaker Lyra Hill produces spectacular performances that mix psychedelia with fantastic tales of self-discovery, the body, and the mysteries of nature. She uses multiple film projectors, looping audio effects, and pulsating hand-drawn images to create super-sensory environments of light, color, and sound. For this event she will present three pieces, including Breathe With Cube (2015) a ‘comedy trance’ featuring an anaglyphic 3D cube that pulsates, grows, and splits in two; Cat Tongue (2014) a tale of sexual exploration and heavy machinery; and a new piece, created especially for the Gene Siskel Film Center, that meditates on “the end” with drawings animated by three alternating slide projectors. 2014–16, USA, multiple formats, ca 60 min + discussion.’

Data-driven Storytelling
‘Storytelling is a fundamentally important marketing discipline.’ It’s OK if you throw up a little in your mouth as you read through this.
