LunarmagmaoceanLove is a one night event with a series of video screenings and discussions as a part of NURTUREart’s Videorover: Season 9.

The title, LunarmagmaoceanLove, is coined by artist and poet Ali Van, looking at the Earth as an organ in which various elements interact through topological contact, contraction and sublimation — a dynamic orchestration of elements in a beautiful constant / irresistible state of flux. As the title implies, the event focuses on the idea of non-human agencies and interactions. We will watch a series of  video  works,  listen  to  an audio ensign,  interact  with  natural  and  artificial  objects,  and discuss the key concepts that are central to understanding what we think of the non-anthropocentric world. We will look at the book Vibrant Matter by Jane Bennett and the philosophical discourse called Speculative Realism for our theoretical impulse.

*All participants and audiences are encouraged  to read  the  first chapter of Jane Bennet’s Vibrant Matter, “The Force of Things,” before they come to the event. If you would like to request a copy of the reading, email rachel@nurtureart.org

Participants are also invited to bring along a video work to include in the screening (your work or found) as a part of this event. If you are bringing a video, please arrive 15 minutes early.

Please RSVP to rachel@nurtureart.org
