REEL Art: Video Technology + Installation Art

Core Dance presents... REEL ART: Video Technology + Installation Art


REEL Art is a platform for original film installations - a contemporary art form that combines video technology with installation art - making use of the storefront windows of Core Dance’s studio building. Coupled with all aspects of the surrounding environment of the Decatur Square, passersby/the audience are affected by this ingenious visual experience. As an installation, this work is unique in its use and design for the Core Dance Studio windows.

This season our REEL Art Artist is Deanna Sirlin who will be presenting three films.
