Memory Wave Sediments: Films and Projection Performance by Colin Manning

Colin Manning has been making collage, optically printed, and direct animated films for over two decades. More recently he has been working with analog projections, performing at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art with Yoko Ono, the Pangea Arts Festival, Transformative Film Train Phenomenon, and for musicians such as Ariel Pink, Consumer, and Buckethead. Tonight’s program will begin with a multiple 16mm projector performance featuring handmade slides and live music from the Guillotine Boys and Doug Theriault, followed by some early films including Incantion #16 (1996), Breakfast of Champions (1997), Asvatthama (1998), and Material Story (1998), which explore techniques of hand-drawn images directly onto 16mm celluloid film combined with found footage, and Tourist (1997), Disaster (1998), and Methyl Cellulose (1999), which combine 2-D collage with optical printing. Recent Years (2017) combines diary-based animation with video collage to look back upon a career of 21 years.
