Joel Schlemowitz will Present Anaglyph 3D Performance for Whitney Museum’s Dreamlands Exhibit

Media Studies professor, Joel Schlemowitz will present an anaglyph 3D performance for overhead projectors with Victrola soundtrack on Friday Nov 18th at Microscope Gallery as part of the Whitney Museum’s Dreamlands exhibition.

Joel Schlemowitz’s new performance, Kannon, Goddess of Mercy, unifies various practices, technologies, instruments, and arcane interests of the artist’s twenty-year practice into a single work. The artist generates anaglyph 3D imagery in real time through the superimposition of images from two overhead projectors, while performing a 78rpm soundtrack on the Victrola. The imagery is culled from ancient Chinese joss paper, tarots, and star charts portraying the Goddess Kannon as she enters the red chamber to observe the different phases of the moon.

Dreamlands: Expanded is a series of expanded cinema events organized by Microscope Gallery in collaboration with the Whitney as part of the exhibition Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016.
