Christine Marie, Shadows in Stereo final performance (March 3, 2018)


Shadows in Stereo: Christine Marie

An immersive and interactive 3-D stereo imaging experience, Shadows in Stereo questions what role analog techniques play amid digital technology and modern storytelling.

Shadows in Stereo is an analog, 3-D stereo imaging experience. Accompanied by a team of performers and dancers, artist Christine Marie uses handmade lights, simple objects, and wire sculpture to cast 30-foot shadows onto walls, ceilings, and floors. Guests wear red-blue anaglyph eyewear which makes the shadows appear three-dimensional, including the guests’ shadows as they wander about the space.

Marie and her team create performances inspired by found 3-D film footage including scenes from James Cameron’s Avatar and 1980s NASA VR simulations. Shadows in Stereo questions what role analog techniques play amid digital technology and modern storytelling, creating an alternative visual space of discovery and exploration. Workshops culminate with a final performance. Collaborators include a choreographer, composer, cinematographer, and students from SFAI and CCA.

Marie’s Shadows in Stereo, along with Turntable Drawings: Danny Clay and Jon Fischer, are a series of interactive workshops and performances in conjunction with Stories: Philip-Lorca diCorcia & Constance DeJong, McEvoy Arts’ Spring 2018 exhibition. Free and open to the public, these live experiments revisit the 20th century technologies of augmented reality (Marie) and vinyl records (Clay, Fischer). They invite visitors to participate in a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process.
