ARTIST IN ATTENDANCE
A Film Love event

Colorful, experimental film and video works on the subject of technology, ritual, and the body, introduced by the artist

"[Martinís] videos make strange the relationships between physical cause and acoustic effect; we seem to witness someone trying out a new sensory faculty with caution and apprehension." ĖArtforum, April 2009

View Darrin Martin's Free to Be...You and Me remix featuring the original actors recreating their roles:


Film Love presents video artist Darrin Martin in person, hosting a program of colorful, experimental video works about technology, ritual, and the body. In particular, Martinís experience with hearing loss and tinnitus inspired a series of poignant works which are both visually and sonically compelling. Other Turbans details a medical intervention into Martinís hearing loss, involving a skull implant, which in turn inspires a sonic journey to the middle of Times Square. View Other Turbans at the artist's website. Monograph in Stereo recreates the artistís changing relationship to sound and his discovery of the interdependence of the senses.

In other collaborative works, Martin further explores technology and the body. What If? features the radical body artists Stelarc and Orlan as part of a "fictional polyamorous romance" with two obscure Marvel superheroes: "the Scarlet Witch, a mutant superhero who has unlimited powers over probability, and the Vision, a 'synthezoid' whose mechanically fabricated body contains a human soul." Containing odd and humorous juxtapositions between the artists and their animated special-effects counterparts, What If? conjures an occult, pastoral, technological ritual.

DARRIN MARTIN: INSIDE OUT is a Film Love event. The Film Love series provides access to rare but important films, and seeks to increase awareness of the rich history of experimental and avant-garde film. The series is curated and hosted by Andy Ditzler for Frequent Small Meals. Film Love was voted Best Film Series in Atlanta by the critics of Creative Loafing in 2006. The Film Love archives are available at www.frequentsmallmeals.com.
