2am (GMT) live online in Visitorsstudio, http://visitorsstudio.org
A 30 minute performance will be given by Marc Garrett and Ruth Catlow in
the Colab-lab, BMNI at 8pm (local time) and live on the Internet in
Visitorsstudio, Furtherfield.org's real-time online, audio-visual
collaborative mixing platform at 2am GMT.
After 30 minutes the mix will open up for everyone who is logged in to
Visitorsstudio to join in.
The title for tomorrow’s performance is inspired by a silent news reel
from 1925 called 'Fundamentalism vs Evolution' by the Topical Film
Company, UK 1925, released last year by the BFI Creative Archive Licence
Group. This film represents “the blaze of conflict between Science and
the Scriptures…” surrounding the Scopes ‘Monkey’ trial in the USA;
staging a head on collision between two trains representing each position.
Marc and Ruth have collected, edited and looped over 300 media files,
trawled from a range of other online archives and blogs: general and
special interest, didactic and evangelical. Tomorrow these files will be
collided in VisitorsStudio.
Join us to watch, heckle or join the mix and preach yourself!
