Press Release for "Convergent Frequencies"

For Immediate Release                    July 22, 2010

i45 ArtBox presents: “Convergent Frequencies”

The galleries of i45 are pleased to announce “Convergent Frequencies”, a site-specific art installation commissioned by ArtBox, an i45 project. The event will take place at the intersection of Krog Street and Irwin Street/Lake Avenue, where three local artists will reinvent the empty lot with three large shipping containers using images, film, and sound, while simultaneously celebrating the surrounding neighborhoods. “Convergent Frequencies” will be open to the public, free of charge, 6pm – 12 midnight during the weekend of September 17,18 and 19.

Each evening at dusk, media artist and designer, Matt Gilbert, will present his new video inspired by the modularity of the brain's vision system and the similar separation of color and movement in digital video. It splits images of the local area and musical performance into two parts—movement and color—investigating them as independent components, and recombining them into a new video work.

Matt Haffner’s contribution to “Convergent Frequencies” will be a series of narrative portraits applied to the exteriors of the three shipping containers. His silhouetted figures play out scenes with a background of urban iconography including bodegas, pawnshops, liquor stores and laundromats. Using found images, local architecture, and his personal understanding of the urban experience; Haffner relates the imagery specifically to the Inman Park, Old 4th Ward, Little 5 Points area that both he and the works inhabit.

Artist and designer, Nat Slaughter, will convert the interiors of the containers into a series of sound installations of binaural field recordings gathered from walks around Old Fourth Ward, Inman Park and the spaces in-between.  The discrete interior spaces transport listeners throughout the neighborhood, where designed and random occurrences are experienced.

i45 is a collective of Atlanta galleries in Inman Park (i), the Old Fourth Ward (4) and Little Five Points (5) working together to promote this neighborhood's rich, creative identity. Member galleries include Barbara Archer Gallery, Henley Studios, Whitespace Gallery, and Wm Turner Gallery.  Through shared events and common interests, we seek wider visibility for our artists and our vision of building a vibrant arts community.

Friday, September 17th / Saturday, September 18th / and Sunday,
September 19th:  6pm – Midnight, with a live performance at 9 pm, Saturday night.
Free and open to the public. Food and beverages available for purchase.
