Opening up the first half of the night will be a performance piece by the KUJAWSKI+SMITH+RHODY trio for multiple 16mm projectors, violin, accordion, flute, lap steel, piano, harmonica & metal objects. This handmade, two-reel, dual projection film was assembled collectively by the ensemble and composed from a series of found b&w 16mm film elements suffering severely of vinegar syndrome. Likewise, the live audio accompaniment is a collectively structured improvisation composed of elements realized during jam sessions in the warehouse.

WIND TIDE is the sound, visual art, and architectural practices of Andrew Weathers and Gretchen Korsmo as well as the name of their home and studio space, a renovated commercial building in downtown Littlefield TX. Despite the interdisciplinary nature of Wind Tide's practice, the work has a conceptual grounding across media and engages with notions of place, space, and environment and is very often made from found or recycled materials. Wind Tide will be performing with synthesizers, lap steel & voice to accompany films/videos by Aaron Oppenheim and J. Eric Simpson.

                     storybook sets, an eerie combination of VHS nostalgia and foreboding dilemmas.

                     Schreiner wrote, directed, & acts in this feature-length film alongside a cast of non-
