Video and Projection Design for Mapping Moebius - December 2010

Mapping Möbius (Theater play with projections)
Presented December 2-19, 2010 at La Mama Theater (First Floor Theater), New York

In the piece, an aging scientist, realizing his inquiries continually return him to a model of his own mind, devises a set of experiments that blur the distinction between his inner and outer worlds. New Stage Theatre Company (NTSC) made an auspicious La MaMa debut last season with "Oh, Those Beautiful Weimar Girls!," an evening of the music and dance associated with exotic dancer Anita Berber, who symbolized many the decadence of Weimar era Berlin.

Shifting Gaze in Times Square, October 2010

A video-art-music installation piece by Laia Cabrera, in collaboration with Erica Glyn and Isabelle Duverger
Spain Art Fest'10 - Times Square Plaza, New York, October 6-7, 2010

"SHIFTING GAZE" IS A FILM AND INSTALLATION CREATED FOR LARGE SCALE OUTDOOR OR INDOOR SPACES THAT SITS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN FILMMAKING, THEATER-DANCE, DIGITAL ART, MUSIC AND SOUND DESIGN.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Shifting Gaze is a film and video-art-music installation about CHOICE, DESIRE and MEMORY. Conceived and directed by Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video-artist) and created in collaboration with Erica Glyn (music production, composer and singer) and Isabelle Duverger (photography and graphic animations). The project nature is based on creative collaboration between different disciplines. Shifting Gaze looks at our feeling of place and time in its most stripped down state: simply ‘being’. Hovering on the borders of consciousness, the film is an exploration of both event and human presence. The strongest principle of growth lies in human choice. Drawing on the fragments-presence of the body, faces, urban construction, nature, textures and remains of activity, "Shifting Gaze" takes you to the submerged, the transformed, the no longer visible.
