Varieties of Slow

Varieties of Slow, 2005. Super-8 film performance, triple projection, black-and-white and color, silent; duration variable. Courtesy Public Opinion Laboratory, New York
Piano and String Quartet Piano and String Quartet, 2004. Sound work on two CDs; duration variable

Lampert’s triple-screen installation is an “ultimate slowing down”—a shot of book spines is projected over a variable period of time. Shown alongside a sound work inspired by Morton Feldman. A performance with cellist Okkyung Lee follows at 5pm on May 6.


“I’m for a cinema composed not by the coupling of light and sound but from the combination of breakfast and lunch. Wait, isn’t that brunch? It used to be, but now lets pretend it’s something else. Theaters are diners; the griddle is a projector; cooks are projectionists; waiters, the concession crew; our food a moving image - here and gone. Who cares what it is anyways as long as it's filling? To get out the ketchup you've got to hit the bottom of the bottle. Featuring Dave Abramson, percussion."
