July 14, 2013: Beige
Beige is the collaborative project of filmmakers Kent Long and Vanessa O'Neill. Their work explores the transformations and dimensions of layered 16mm projection with live sound composed and performed by Long. They will be performing an extended version of Suspension (2008) by Vanessa O'Neill, a film that layers a toned and black-and-white reel creating subtle shifts of hue and tone of abstracted seascape.
