Other Cinema: RHODY + TOOTH + HARPER + ORACLE PLUS

Saturday, February 27, 2016, 8:30 pm, $8

Vernacular Visions is the fearless project of local photo phenom Justin Clifford Rhody, who renders 35mm slide detritus into marvelous displays of the American Uncanny. Tonight, the keen-eyed collector projects two of his masterworks—Western Lands (his original landscapes) and Moldy Marvels (diptychs of exquisite coloration and abstract form), both accompanied by evocative music and his own impromptu asides. The evening is abetted by four other East Bay auteurs: Other Cinema’s own Joshua Leon Harper premieres his sci-fi found-photo narrative AI-33 (S-Class) Explores the 20th Century, the winsome twosome of Oracle Plus perform a multimedia space-jam by way of video sleight-of-hand, and cosmic inspiration/impresario Sweet Tooth turns a 16mm double-projection into an ecstatic ascent into one of his “charmed” black holes.
