Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rijeka, Croatia
 
I'm currently hosted as a resident of the museum while I'm in production on a new experimental film project, shot underwater and in caves. Production still at left from the recent shoot in Slovenia, shot beneath the surface of the underground lakes deep within a water cave. Sound by Ana Jurcic.

Residency Open Studios at Popps Packing, Detroit
 
It was a great month in Detroit making artificial rain, processing film in the sink and burning clay in the ground, with Arthur Summereder from Vienna, Ulli Bomans from Germany, and Jennifer Bennett from Berlin. The new video piece Divination Strategies created there will be part of an upcoming solo show in Vermont.

Lo Fi Sci Fi
Late Night with Carl Sagan was invited to screen at Craig Baldwins' Other Cinema, a fixture of experimental film in San Francisco, and so of course I went along. A great night like only SF can provide, Avant to live!

Opening Reception December 6, 2013, 6 to 9
 
Recently returned from an artist residency in Slovenia, Shanna Maurizi presents new work that explores areas where description attempts to give shape to unknown phenomena.  Working with the tension between the opposing poles of scientific understanding and mystification, the pieces originate in film photography and are realized as altered C-prints, collages, and screenprints.

Description of Changing Conditions
Lendava, Slovenia
 
In October 2013 I was an artist-in-residence at D'Clinic Studios in Lendava, Slovenia.  This was a productive and memorable residency, which included going underground with an infra-red camera in the Karst cave underworld of southeast Slovenia.  My studio work culminated in an exhibition in the main gallery on October 31, Halloween.

Screening of "Late Night with Carl Sagan" at Other Cinema
Saturday November 2nd, 2013
 
At Craig Baldwin's San Francisco experimental film series, my homage to Mr. Sagan will follow a homage to "2001", and will share the bill with the super brilliant SodaJerk twosome, Australian sisters who do dual side-by-side laptop-controlled-in-real-time projections, in this case a seance raising the spirits of the cinematic dead.
