It was a terrific night, something different for the LA photographic scene and MOPLA loved it. They want a short edit for their website. Lots of attendees during the two-hour loop of this 33 minute projection/performance.
We too were moved by viewing this on screen in this perfect little outdoor venue for between Michael Intriere's emotive cello performance and the very complex but often abstract imagery from all of our participating photographers, we (Martin Cox and I who co-curated) were delighted with the way all of this worked.
Thinking about where to next take it.

Come join us Tuesday, 12 April between 7 & 10pm for an evening of meditative imagery and sound, the photographs alternating between manipulated abstraction and powerful intense focus into natural landscape and atmosphere. We love the concept of this quiet moment with Michael Intriere's emotive recorded cello composition, Seashore, playing along with our images, all being projected at Space 15Twenty, itself full of the reverberation of LA's dreams and surrounded by the lights and clatter (Amoeba Music!) of Hollywood.
PACIFIC RESONANCE is our show.
Exploring MOPLA's 2011 theme "Adaptations and Reverberations," Sara Jane Boyers and Martin Cox have curated a night of natural and composed abstraction, seen from a diverse set of photographic investigations by seven noted Los Angeles-based photographers observing light refraction, moisture, surface and depth, colour and light, permanence and impermanence, timelessness and elemental concerns, all relating conceptually to the landscape and emotion of Los Angeles itself.
Images will be projected in a public square, Hollywood's Space 15TWENTY, with a specially recorded musical component as part of MOPLA's annual projection series, Pro'jekt LA FROM 7 to 10pm - ADMISSION FREE with RSVP to ProjektLA2@monthofphotography.com
Musician Michael Intriere, (a stalwart of the Los Angeles avant-garde art and music scene since the late 1970s), has composed and recorded cello compositions; SEASHORE I and SEASHORE II, which will accompany the projected photography.
