an eMPAC plus iEAR event For details, visit: www.empac.rpi.edu/events/2004/geyserland.html GEYSERLAND The original Geyser Land was a site-specific installation presented in Montana during August 2003. Geyser Land’s audience boarded a train and traveled twenty-five miles through the Bozeman pass, fifty miles north of Yellowstone National Park. Out of the train’s windows the spectators witnessed video projections by Mary Ellen Strom on the rural landscape, experienced a sound score by Dan Dobson and live narration and performance tableaus by Ann Carlson. The conceptual strategy used the train to establish the spectator’s point of view, to locate the spectator in a tourist position and to point to photography, film and the railroad as tools of colonialism. For iEAR presents! the artists present a re-mixed version of the original work in a hallucinatory montage of sound, image and performance. LOCATION: WEST HALL AUDITORIUM
