Vladimir in person!

Portland artist Vladimir elevates the View-Master to high art with her hand-made stereoscopic Vladmasters, repurposing the plastic viewers for extraordinary public performances. Drawing upon Greek legends, entomology, and newspaper stories, her “films” are 28-frame haikus, each photographed from richly detailed dioramas and set to her artfully composed soundtracks-including chimes and dings. Tonight, Vladimir will present a brief survey of her output, including Lucifugia Thigmotaxis (2004); The Public Life of Jeremiah Barnes (2004); Actaeon at Home (2005); and Fear & Trembling (2006). View-Masters will be provided. 2004-06, Vladimir, US, ca. 60 min.
