Course Description:
Sell your cleverness, and buy bewilderment –Rumi
For one day, let your inner critic take a long nap and give the right side of your brain permission to play on the page. Through a series of guided writing prompts we will tap into our unconscious minds and dig up the jewels hiding in our imaginations. Drawing from  Liz Gilbert’s Big Magic, Austin Kleon’s Newspaper Blackout, and Natalie Goldberg’s techniques of entering sideways, we will write a series of new poems and come away with  take-home tools and insights to awaken our unconscious in our everyday lives.

Artist Talk: Brian Lye @ Zoom
Mar 13 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Artist Talk: Saturday, March 13, 2021 at 12:00 PM (PST)

 

Oxygen Art Centre presents an artist talk with Brian Lye on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at Noon (PST). The talk will be presented for free on Zoom. R.S.V.P. by emailing info@oxygenartcentre.org to attend. Everyone welcome.

 

The artist talk will share information about Lye’s residency and current exhibition, ABOVE ABOVE BELOW BELOW, as well as his artistic practice. This online event will also feature discussion on the topic of Lye’s exhibition, crystals.

 

Lye conducted research for an experimental documentary on crystalline minerals across scientific, mining, and healing fields, which this exhibition and new series of films are derived. Utilizing discussion-based research, Lye investigated human and natural relations to crystals. Interviewing experts on crystals from the region forms the foundational material for Lye’s experiments in 16mm analogue film.

 

Fascinated by the semiprecious stones and their capacity for transmission, amplification, and new age applications, Lye draws upon his background in filmmaking and installation to create an immersive body of work on view in the exhibition, ABOVE ABOVE BELOW BELOW.

 

Lye is a filmmaker, artist, and educator who lives and works in Nelson, BC. His practice is focused in analogue film production, merging the everyday with formal experimentations in play, special effects, and psychogeography.

 

Brian Lye’s Artist Talk will take place on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at 12:00 PM NOON (PST) on Zoom. To attend R.S.V.P. by emailing info@oxygenartcentre.org. ABOVE ABOVE BELOW BELOW is currently on view at Oxygen Art Centre until Saturday, March 20, 2021, Thursdays and Fridays 1:00 – 5:00 PM, and Saturdays 1:00 – 7:00 PM, by appointment only.
