Seven Words

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

Tonight at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, SVACE instructor Ofri Cnaani debuts Seven Words, a multimedia installation featuring original, live-mixed video!  The work combines the music of Haydn with prints from the Museum’s collection.  The artist writes:

Screen simulation of "Seven Words" by Ofri Cnaani

Seven Words formed into a piece about reading and writing—translating times and eras, languages and cultures—and the various toolboxes used to create and transform meanings. While the piece revolves around a moment of an extreme physicality, ecstasy, and final surrender, I was looking at more nuanced, metaphorical visual moments that capture the core idea of transformation and generate a conversation between those who write culture and their readers.”

This concert will be live-streamed from the Met’s website.
