Alternate Sight is a collection of the latest work (2002-2004) from three artists of moving imagery and sound. These artists live and work in a city that has come to dominate the world’s idea of “the movies,” but they explore other ways of organizing  the experience of sound and image. Instead of the organizing principle of the story, Andy Kopra employs ideas of visual temporal structure, Audri Phillips presents a visual poetry, and John Adamczyk explores a musical approach to the moving image.

Alternate Sight: New Abstract Movies from Los Angeles is the collaboration
of the following three artists.

John Adamczyk
John Adamczyk is an interactive designer, filmmaker, graphic artist, video
artist and composer. He has created a number of films, videos, interactive
installations and performances. He has been at the forefront of
interactive art, expanding the uses of interactive graphics into uncharted
territories.  John Adamczyk’s newest works are graphic performances that
combine video, animation, gestural drawing, sculpture, music, and dance
into a new art form.

“I’m exploring the possibilities of musical illustrations, whether that
means simply a graphic illustration of a piece of music, or illustrations
that have a musical quality about them. I make movies that are less like
books and more like music in terms of how they’re constructed and how
they’re viewed.”

Audri Phillips
Audri is a Los Angeles based artist currently working in a variety of
media that range from computer animations, documentaries and video art to
oil paintings and spoken word readings.  She has had many exhibitions of
her paintings and has had digital animations shown at Siggraph, on the
Siggraph Video Review, and at film festivals at various universities and
museums.  She has also worked in the film and games industry for the past
twenty years as art director, digital artist, storyboard artist, painter,
and animator.

“I work in visual poetry in which the outer continues into the inner, the
visible into the invisible and everything is everywhere simultaneously.”

Andy Kopra
Andy works in the collision between computer graphics technology and the
film and animation industry in Los Angeles.

“A film — a beginning is followed by a development that leads to a feeling
at the end that the imagery and sound have completed what they set out to
do. For this I look to the unfolding of simple structures which can, in
their combination, create the suspicion that something meaningful lurks
