To Co-respond, or “respond” together, implies a match, which is (used) to light a flame or, in other words: to create light together, or to make light, to lighten, or to illuminate while at the same time unburdening, which suggests a vertical movement (a sort of anti- or counter-gravitational movement) and allowing the freedom to “move” more readily, and in this case interactively, one “note” in the correspondence opening a portal through which correspondent and correspondee can mosey, float, stride, jump, or ooze, and con- sider from both sides, the “outside” becoming an inside from within which other casements can be carved, other throughways considered, taken, burst apart and re-imagined. If there is an end point it’s formed/ foundon the edge of the horizon of this hall of revolving mirrors, dissolving what seemed to be a clear illusion of singularity, exploding the personal while turning over, under, upward, sideward, onward.

THE ARTISTS:
Lori Felker
Lori chose Filmmaking as her official second language in 2003-ish, bumping German into third place. Eventual fluency is important to her, so she employs many forms/formats, practices frequently with others, and tries hard not to shy away from expressing her thoughts on human behavior, travel, inter-activity, frustration, failure and political irritants.

Robert Todd
After a lifetime torn between music and drawing/painting, film sauntered into the picture in 1989 and offered Rob Todd’s maker-innards a truce that seems to have endured ever since. A lyrical filmmaker as well as a sound and visual artist, he continually produces short works that resist categorization.

The works in this program have been included in programs at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Boston Underground Film Festival, Migrating Forms, Chicago Underground Film Festival, Maryland Film Festival, Festival du Nouveau Cinema, Milwaukee Underground Film Festival, WNDX Festival, and the WiP Festival.
