I Can See Clearly Now 

Wednesday, Jan 2 2008
One of the great things about large-scale photography is that it's like the still version of IMAX, if you're actually standing in a gallery face to face with it. Everyday shit looks completely cool and freaked-out, because it is cool--you're just not usually looking close enough. At "Occurances," a new exhibit by Veronika Lukasova, the photographer goes a step further and nudges her work into stranger territory by taking panoramas of real places (Medellin, Colombia, the Medina Wall in Tripoli, the NYC skyline) and tilting, layering, and repeating the images. Groves become forests, the old wall unfolds, and the artist's background as a native of the Czech Republic goes to work on all of it. No stadium seating, though. In the side gallery is a concurrent show, the National Juried Plastic Camera Exhibition.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
