A Forest Through Time: Seasons of Isolation

Experience a forest through the seasons, from spring rain to winters snow, from star filled night to the warmth of summers sun. Christopher Andrew uses long exposures and overnight time-lapses with the camera often left in places devoid of the human element for days at a time. The technology used to document the forest, as well as the complex editorial sequencing, creates images that are both awesome and foreboding. This film seeks to capture the tension between a longing for the natural world, and the ties of technology that keep us from its embrace. The soundtrack by Tablapusher speaks of the secret, haunting and majestic quality of the forest giving voice to the wind, the sky, and the trees themselves.  

Christopher Andrew’s video installations and live visual performances are fueled by his original shot content, focused on reimagining the natural world. Andrew’s visual work has been showcased at major festivals world wide, including Global Gathering, Tomorrowland, Burning Man, and Art Basel. When Andrew was a high school student, he produced his own visual content, multi-media installations, and worked at Lone Wolf Pictures, an award winning documentary house. He continued his studies in film history and video art at Oberlin College, allowing Andrew to expand his digital installation process, and participate in a residency at a local venue where he performed live video works with his band. After graduating, Andrew became part of the second wave of VJ’s in Chicago, and spent years touring nationally, and then internationally, with some of the biggest artists in electronic music.

In light of recent events, Art on theMART and 150 In light of recent events, Art on theMART and 150 Media Stream have decided to postpone the public webinar: "What is Next for Public Art: Time-Based Media Artists in Conversation", which was scheduled for Wednesday, June 3rd (today) at 6pm CT. This was a difficult decision for us, but we felt the need to reflect and broaden the topics. We will reach out to you when we reschedule this webinar. 
Art is part of life. It helps us express our humanity and all its complexities and struggles. At its best, it fosters constructive dialogue. Our program strives to offer a venue for this dialogue, a public site of shared dreams and a forum to embrace our commonality. @artonthemart @150mediastream @yugezhou
During this special time, we will revisit our past During this special time, we will revisit our past projects and featured artists. This week we will take a look at “Dancing Human” by Chicago-based artist @judy.k.suh. Drawing inspiration from Eadweard Muybridge’s photographic studies of motion, the piece breaks down a dancer’s movement into a series of still images created from shooting on Super 8 and 35mm. It was conceived specifically for the unique structure of 150 Media Stream, utilizing the vertical screens to present the film strips in their entirety. Alluding to film editing, the strips were cut and organized for a visual rhythm rather than temporal rhythm, and reveals analog technology in all its imperfections—dusts, scratches and light leaks. #150MediaStream #StreamOn
During this special time, we will revisit our past During this special time, we will revisit our past projects and featured artists. This week we will take a look at “When the Night Falls”, a fanciful animated film by Japanese artist @motomichi_nakamura. The piece takes place in the far future of Chicago where the city is taken over by residents-turned-humanoid bunnies and other mysterious creatures. Once night falls, giant city guardians are awakened and start walking around the streets while flying sea serpents come out of the lake and roam in the sky over Chicago. #150mediastream #streamon #whenthenightfalls
