The Ceibas Cycle & the Appreciation of a Migratory Archive
A Lecture and Media Presentation by Evan Meaney
October 9th 2009
Part exhibition, part artist talk. Part technical demonstration, and part histiography; this lecture introduces Meaney’s work in a context of post-structuralism and cinema history. Borrowing from media theorists (Frampton, Ong, Ulmer, Foucault, Baudrillard, Shannon, Derrida and Bergson) Meaney positions the audience to view his work as, not only works of cinema, but critiques of mismanaged and mislabeled memory – be they personal, technological or something in between.
