Visiting Artist: Cooper Holoweski, 7pm
The Rhode Island School of Design is hosting artist Cooper Holoweski as he screens his video piece, Katabasis. The screening will be accompanied by a live score, played by three musicians. Katabasis is a 40-minute with sound that moves the viewer through an elaborately constructed virtual junkyard, built in the 3D modeling program, Sketchup. It explores themes of death, limbo, and rebirth.
