Incidence (the inevitable movement of not moving)
Casey Deming and John Marks
December 12th 7-10PM
Incidence is a collaborative installation by Minneapolis-based artists Casey Deming and John Marks. For Incidence , the artists channel their ongoing collaboration in minimalist electroacoustic sound composition to create an immersive exhibition for the visual domain. Through film, video, sculpture, and architectural intervention, Deming and Marks utilize the abbreviated time frame of the one night exhibition to imagine a temporal space where incidental occurrences, spatially informed relationships, and physical perspectives are both qualitatively and quantifiably measurable (we hope).
Casey Deming is a Minneapolis-based artist with a focus on printmaking, design, and sound art. He has curated the Tuesday Series for Improvised Music since 2008. Casey’s visual art has been exhibited at the MN Center for Book Arts, Madame of the Arts, Art of This, Honeycomb Salon, Chicago Artists Coalition, and currently at Modern Times Cafe.
