March 2 event: A Synesthete’s Atlas

Thursday, March 2nd, artist and software engineer Eric Theise will perform A Synesthete’s Atlas, an improvised cartographic salon piece using projected maps based on OpenStreetMap data. Since the premiere performance in Lisbon, April 2022, Theise has collaborated with improvising musicians across the US; this will be his first solo performance, with maps being manipulated to a soundscape inspired by the Library’s cartographic and geographic holdings. The performance will last 55 minutes and will occasionally introduce strobing effects that may affect photosensitive viewers.
doors: 7:15 p.m.
performance: 7:30 p.m.
