William Morris: Coded Time September 23 - October 22
Opening Reception September 23 from 6 to 8pm
Artist lecture to correlate with the exhibition at noon on September 23 Sverdrup room 101 on Webster University Campus
The title of William Morris’s exhibition comes from the term time code, the visual measurement of synchronous events in time recorded onto video. Its initial use was to be a guide during the process of combining audio with video, or to mark events on video at specific points. Its role in linear videotape editing was of crucial importance, but with the advent of non-linear editing the time code became anachronistic. The exhibition will include five video works, each related in some way to the idea of coded time, sequential or otherwise. Additionally graphic diagrams and technical notes dating back to 1988 and linked to Morris’s recent video works will illustrate the passage of time and the artist’s own involvement with the evolution of video technology.
All events are free and open to the public. The Hunt Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm during the duration of the exhibitions.
