5th Annual SubZERO Festival 2012
I am very excited to present a new piece “You bear the scar at the base of your spine, where lies the shadow of the moon”, made in collaboration with poet Tiffany Higgins for the SubZERO festival in San Jose. It is our first collaboration and I really loved working on this project. My first outdoor projection was on the wall of the San Diego Museum of Art for the Summer Salon Series in 2010. They were still images. This projection is an animation and the scale is larger. This is an adventure for Tiffany and I and I hope everyone who sees the piece will enjoy it!
We are ready, the projector is rented and has arrived, we made some tries this week, and unless it rains everything should go smoothly!
The piece is the projection during the event, so we will videotape the projection and hopefully make a nice documentation of it.

“You bear the scar at the base of your spine, where lies the shadow of the moon” is a visual poem of light especially created for SubZERO 2012 and South First Street. It is a collaborative piece between Michele Guieu (visual) and Tiffany Higgins (texts): a series of animations about real and fictitious species, the ocean we are coming from, and the cosmos we are dreaming of. Digitized elements of nature float in San Jose’s urban environment.
The projection will approximately start at 8:30PM and loop until 12PM, on a large wall between Anno Domini and Caffe Frascati, in the parking lot off South First Street. Length of the piece: 10mn.
