Preludes in Sculpture


From Sean Winnik GRAD:

Since January of this year, Sean Winnik (’14) has been creating and recording The Preludes in Sculpture, a collection of sculptures with associated sound files chronicling their creation. They will be displayed in a gallery-style showing in Earth House on September 19th opening at noon. This is part of Sean’s goal of engaging the Wesleyan students in avant-garde performance and art outside of overly academic settings.

“I believe that there are creators of avant-garde art and people who wish to intake the avant-garde at Wesleyan, but a consistent venue where these two population can meet doesn’t really exist, or at least is hard to find. I want to change that.”

Think video games in general lack gender diversity?

This will be a general meeting to gauge further interest, to discuss goals and needs, and even reevaluate the name of this female-friendly gaming group that we’re trying to create. Come meet other similarly-minded video game connoisseurs and maybe even meet a new friend for your Halo 4
Legendary campaign run.

Film Series: Morvern Callar

2002. UK. Dir: Lynne Ramsay. With Samantha Morton. 97 min.

A supermarket clerk wakes up Christmas morning to find her boyfriend has committed suicide, leaving behind a completed manuscript for a novel. Morton’s captivating and deeply enigmatic performance (along with a great soundtrack featuring Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, and Velvet Underground) anchors a pictorial, strange, yet evocative study of loss.
