California College of the Arts

Thursday, May 16, through Saturday, May 25, 2013 (open daily, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.)

From the CCA web site:
“The MFA Show will be a dynamic exhibition of work in a vast range of media. It is curated by faculty member and respected writer and art critic Glen Helfand, who notes, “CCA’s MFA Show is always a wonderful opportunity to introduce a new group of imaginative, innovative, emerging artists to the CCA and Bay Area communities.

“This year the show is particularly rich in photographic works and immersive, media-based projects. It reflects a diverse range of interests and approaches, and will surely make for a highly engaging visitor experience.”

About the exhibit’s artist: (from the CCA website):

Floris Schönfeld

“Floris Schönfeld focuses on the relationship between fiction and faith. His multipart installation The Damagomi Project centers on retelling the history of the Damagomi Group, a loosely affiliated group of spiritualists and academics that was active from the early 1930s until the late 1970s and experimented with direct communication with Northern California’s natural world.

By reenacting a number of the group’s original experiments, Schönfeld questions to what extent the power of fiction can be used to reshape reality, and how far belief can be replaced with a suspension of disbelief.”

This video about the Damagomi Project was filmed by myself, Geoff Peters geoffmobile.com on a Sony Cybershot RX100 and edited with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5. Please subscribe :) youtube.com/geoffmobile
