Beyond/In WNY 2010: Alternating Currents

Blake Carrington

Cathedral Scan

Asbury Hall

Beyond/In Western New York 2010

Blake Carrington Cathedral Scan Blake Carrington’s Cathedral Scan performances are an ongoing work both wildly simple and utterly complex. Using architectural plans of Gothic cathedrals as his point of departure, Carrington scans the images using a Max/MSP/Jitter software patch that creates unique rhythms and timbres for each structure.

Then, in a beautiful contemporary exemplifcation of the hand-rendered, this computer-generated raw material is molded and manipulated through a audio-visual performance piece.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
