After Hours, Room Mate Grace Hotel
Times Square Arts and The Clocktower Gallery present After Hours, a series of ephemeral installations and performances hidden amongst the Times Square district¹s diverse venues, recorded for radio and video dissemination.
The ARTonAIR.org live streamcast takes place 10-11pm EDT during the Room Mate Grace Hotel event featuring Materialization/De-Materialization, a video and water installation by Marco Brambilla, with Color Organ soundtrack by Cammisa Buerhaus.
Marco Brambilla’s new work, Materialization/De-materialization uses video samples from the “Transporter Room” effect from the original Star Trek television series where the characters were “De-materialized” then teleported through space and “Re-materialized” at their destination. Groupings of hundreds of characters are introduced using this effect, each edited into a motion loop where they are never fully revealed and always appear on the verge of departure or arrival, trapped in a perpetual state of transition. To make this work, Brambilla sampled each instance where this effect appears in the 27 episodes of the original Star Trek television series (1966-69), then removed each character from the original background, leaving only the outline of the person appearing and disappearing in a shimmering curtain of floating sparkle.
