  • The NYSA presents D. Carlton Bright on the new potentials 3D has to offer

    Mr. Bright will describe the basic history of Stereoscopy, and will show and discuss various viewers and other 3D devices he has purchased or constructed for the pursuit of his art. He'll also demonstrate a process he's developing to enable an easier stereoscopic workflow. The presentation will be followed by an open discussion of the growing potential of 3D and its influence on society and culture, both now and in the future. D. Carlton Bright is an Artist and Videographer. His 3D Video exhibit, 'Williamsburg 3D of a Decade' has been displayed in a number of local galleries It takes you on a surreal stereoscopic journey into the recent transition of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. http://www.carltonbright.com/portfolio (http://www.carltonbright.com/portfolio/) You can also visit his virtual lab, "Bright's Spot" on the NYSA website. http://www.3dnsa.org/lab/brightsspot.html

  • POLARITY: An Evening of Polarized 3D Projections

    Holocenter - Center for the Holographic Arts

    The Center for Holographic Arts (http://www.holocenter.org/), in collaboration with the SPLICE (http://splicenyc.org/) live electronic music performance series, is excited to present POLARITY: An Evening of Polarized 3D Projections + Experimental Sounds. The audiovisual extravaganza begins with a selection of 3D still images, from a roster of talented stereographers, projected in the cavernous lobby of the Holocenter. In response to the images, musicians tū (Jeremy Slater + Tamara Yadao) and Chris Ianuzzi will generate a real-time ambient electronic soundtrack. Snacks will be provided. Participating Artists: - Carlton Bright - Maximus Clarke - Dave Comeau - Paul Johnson - Zack Lieberman - Gerald Marks - John Zelenka - Zoran Zelic The main event of the evening will be “Williamsburg Concerto No.1 (http://carltonbright.com/portfolio/excerpts-from-williamsburg-3d-of-a-decade/)”. 3D artist Carlton Bright (http://carltonbright.com/) has lived in and documented the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn for over 25 years. He assembled this ambitious and atmospheric 1-hour stereoscopic film from footage shot over the course of the decade spanning from 2003 to 2013. A screening of Maximus Clarke (http://maximusclarke.com/)’s 3D short "Occupy Your Mind (http://klaxon.tv/news_20111212.htm)" will precede Bright’s film. Filmed at the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park in fall 2011, it features Clarke as Maxx Klaxon, his dictatorial pop/performance-art alter ego, satirically instructing the protestors to ignore the broken socioeconomic system, and immerse themselves in the distractions of mass media. During the events, visitors will also have access to the Vault Gallery of the Holocenter (http://holocenter.org/vault-gallery). The classic 1920s bank vault space is filled with holographic artwork by veteran artists in the field as well as fresh visions from around the world.
