LUIS SIERRA: SOMEWHERE OVER THE DIGITAL PRISM


Feb 16 – Apr 15 / In rotation
Town Hall Video Wall + Video Screens

Somewhere Over the Digital Prism (SODP) hacks Dorothy's most famous ballad from The Wizard of Oz through a series of mimicked glitches. The familiar imagery of Dorothy singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow is supplanted with a glitch version that asserts Scarecrow, Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion into Dorothy's role while encapsulating their emotions through patterns of pixelation. Semiotically speaking, this piece creates a dialogue between the icon and the referent in which the symbol is skewed through digital conversion. SODP asks its audience to (re)imagine the rainbow through an interrogation of movement and memory.
