Telepathic Double Feature
Date & Time
August 23, 2012, 4pm–7pm
Machine Project

Join us for appointment based telepathic drawing session between your pet and Lauren von Gogh, a founding member of the Sober & Lonely Institute of Contemporary Art.

Based on the scientific investigations of Karl Krall in the early 1900s, von Gogh will be channeling the unspoken thoughts of pets into watercolor abstractions. To participate in the Telepathic Pet Drawing Session please email Lauren von Gogh at lauren@soberandlonely.org to set up an appointment. Appointments will be available between 4-7pm in durations of 15 minutes per session. All species of pet are welcome. If your pet cannot travel, bring a photograph or video clip of them along to the session.

Telepathic pet drawings will be followed by a performance by Ezra Buchla, Luke Fischbeck and Corey Fogel of Frederic Rzewski’s Spacecraft (8pm). In the “Plan for Spacecraft”, Rzewski conceives of a musical performance in which the thoughts between the performers travel through a mutual labyrinth to break through the conventions held by thoughts of the audience.
