Burning Leaves: A Retrospective of Song and Stories
followed by a reception at 516 ARTS, 516 Central Ave.
This collection of songs and stories included pieces from Anderson's
acclaimed solo shows The Speed of Darkness, Happiness,
The End of the Moon and Homeland. In an intimate evening
of voice, electronics and violin, Anderson spun offbeat adventure stories
with her characteristic wit and poignancy. The evening also featured
her solo violin pieces which have become increasingly complex and symphonic.
As NASA's first artist-in-residence, Anderson draws on her recent research
and travels. Part travelogue, part personal theories, history and dreams
The End of the Moon looks at the relationships between war,
aesthetics, spirituality and consumerism. Anderson explores the contemporary
meanings of freedom and time as well as the tangled ways in which we
decide what is beautiful now. Much of Anderson's work explores the interaction
of art, technology and science, a common theme for land-based artists,
many of whom have explored the stars and planets as reflected on earth.
Anderson's video piece Hidden Inside Mountains, which was featured at 516 ARTS, uses "telegraphic language to describe
the scale and sensuality of nature." On Tuesday night, June 9 at 7pm & 9pm she participated
in a talk and screening on the dome of the Plantarium discussing artists
working with scientific technologies. More details
