Sleepwalkers, Night 6
Another great viewing. The most memorable moment happened a couple minutes after I arrived. I had listened to the NPR story
on the Sleepwalkers
this morning. In his interview curator Peter Eleey had stressed the point that these are silent films. I had that in my head as I watched the first film of the evening and started to hear the sound of an old movie projector. I mean, this is an amazing installation but was it capable of provoking aural hallucinations? Well, no. Turns out that it was the hot dog guy's generator. However, in those few seconds before rational thought arrived I know that I was waiting for the theatre organ to kick in. Beautiful.
And let's not forget the generator.
