Artist: Tom Thayer
installation, painting, performance | 2012

Multimedia artist Tom Thayer will present two live performances, further activating his third-floor gallery installation with his own presence. Thayer’s installations are highly theatrical sight-sound environments featuring handmade backdrops, puppet-like figures, stop-motion collage animations, and vintage audio and image-making equipment. For his performances, he improvises on an array of self-made musical instruments, performs live animation and video mixing, and manipulates the objects in the installation to generate a quivering constellation of moving and static forms.
