An interactive multimedia installation and performance piece
First Friday, Feb 5th, 2016, 6-9pm
Sunday, Feb 14th, 2016, 5-9pm
The public is invited to enter our version of Thomas Edison’s Black Maria studio and “give us a kiss” on camera, just like May Irwin and John C. Rice did for Thomas Edison Co. 120 years ago.
The newly recorded videos will be projected in the gallery alongside the original 1896 film, all set to playful kiss-themed music, and will become part of a final video work that will mix Edison’s original film with the kisses recorded during the Public Displays installation.
