An opening reception will be held on Thursday, May 25 from 6 – 8 p.m.
The solo exhibition will feature Psalm 121, a film made possible by a Ramapo College Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtable grant. The film was created specifically for the Video iPod as a virtual amulet. The images were mostly collected on the Lower East Side and Ellis Island. In the film, Psalm 121 is chanted in a Sephardic style by Alain Checroun. Other works to be projected and installed for the exhibition include Trivial Topographies, Bush Blinks and Soft Targets.
