Balagan and Non-Event once again team up to present… Temporal Currents: Experimental Film and Sound at the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum.
Conceived as a sort of “live installation,” this event seeks to exploit the peculiarities of the old pumping station as a non-traditional cinema space and concert venue, breathing new life into its 130-year-old brass and iron machinery by means of multiple 16mm and video projections, as well as the sonic explorations of local experimenters. Roughly a dozen members of the burgeoning AgX Film Collective will present new works specially created for the space, informed by its history and architecture, and in dialogue with its intended function and design. Projectors will be placed throughout the facilities, shining abstracted and figurative imagery onto its many curved and textured surfaces, obstructed and shaped by the geometry of its numerous valves, pistons, and gears.
