See The Elephant! Thursday October 14th
“See The Elephant!” is an immersive four-screen video installation with surround sound audio that features convergent viewpoints during the 2004 Republican National Convention (RNC). The Republican National Convention was held in New York City at Madison Square Garden August 30th through September 2nd. The four video trajectories take place inside the RNC, outside the venue with the authorities, in the streets with the demonstrators, and at arms-length with mass media. Content for the projected piece includes natural sound, impromptu interviews, and overlapping content with the intent of creating an intelligible, multi-linear, political narrative.
The event takes place at Flatbed Press, 2832 East MLK Blvd. Screenings are at 7pm and 9pm, and there is a $3 donation requested. This is Austin’s chance to see it as it tours the nation before the election.
