Friday, March 3 | Lori Hepner & Kendra Ross - Intersection*ology
Working at the intersection of art, gender and technology, artists Lori Hepnerand Kendra Ross utilize light, sound, movement and image to situate memories of the feminine past into today’s corporeality. This work-in-progress performance inserts sonic and image based queries to process women’s pasts, creating future technological landscapes of digital information. Intersection*ology explores, adapts, morphs, rejoices and revolts in the many ways women are perceived.
Fresh Works is KST’s month-long creative learning program for Pittsburgh-based artists. The program provides artists with production support, lighting and sound design, and 80 hours at The Alloy Studios to research, explore, play, and finally share a work-in-progress performance. Fresh Works debuted in 2013 and, so far, this residency incubator has benefited seven lead artists.
