ACP Public Art Presents: "Volley" from Monica Cook
The Goat Farm Arts Center
Featuring work by: Monica Cook

Other: Fri, Oct 21, 7pm - 9pm

The Public Art Project for ACP will be a sound activated, interactive animation (stop motion/claymation) by Monica Cook Monica Cook's first stop-motion animation video "Deuce" was selected by the Guggenheim Museum as one of 25 works featured in the "YouTube Play. A Biennial of Creative Video." The global online initiative is a joint venture of the Guggenheim and YouTube, in collaboration with HP, and aims "to discover and showcase the most exceptional talent working in the ever-expanding realm of online video." Cook's work was selected from more than 23,000 videos submitted.

Her work “Volley” commissioned by ACP and co-sponsored by Flux Projects, will explore human-animal interface: Interspecies communication; animals as totems and deities in early human cultures, etc.

This animation will be activated by the sound of the audience's applause. In order for the animation to play, clapping must continue, once it ceases the visuals stop. The participation with the audience is key, they must give in order to receive, yet, if something appears slightly questionable to be applauding they must decide to continue to partake or withdrawal, knowing that they could be equally judged if their interest overrides their ideology.

This project will debut at FLUX on Sept. 30th
101 Centennial Olympic Park Drive SW
Atlanta, GA 30313

Additional opportunities to see this project:
October 8th at Atlantic Station
October 29th at Grant Park

ACP Film Fest: Still Motion
The Goat Farm Arts Center
Featuring work by: Various Artists

Film Screening: Fri, Oct 21, 7pm - 9pm

From mobile-phones to HD-SLRs, lenses are capturing moving images at an unprecented rate. Cameras dedicated to taking still images are now doubling as hybrid machines capable of high-resolution video. Following an open call for submissions, Andy Ditzler of Frequent Small Meals, Blake Williams of Proper Medium, and ACP have selected a unique, inspiring, provocative evening screening of videos shot with still cameras.

These videos uncover the "edge of motion", where the traditional shutter-click is now capable of creating something far beyond a single frame. In addition to the open call, the curators will be selecting some of the finest examples of the genre from around-the-globe. Traditionally viewed within the confines of a computer screen, the evening will present a unique chance to view these videos in a film-fest format, with a live audience at The Goat Farm Arts Center.

A cash award for "best in show" from the open call will be awarded by Guest Jurors Tom Brown, Vice President of Original Productions for Turner Classic Movies, and Michael Kochman, Creative Director, Turner Image Management.

For details, see the Call for Entries, and submit your video for consideration.
