Peaks

Sarah Cameron Sunde & Joshua Dumas

Peaks is an ongoing, cumulative video work in which Sarah Cameron Sunde and Joshua Dumas reuse the detritus of the built environment to construct brief cinematic moments suggesting iconic mountainous vastness. The mundanity of the material is sometimes unrecognizable in its transformation to surreal landscape. Peaks investigates our relationship to scale, to awe and beauty, to human ecological impact, and explores cycles of transformation and elevation and corruption.

Becoming Ocean

When climate-change journalist Eiren Caffall was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, she realized that, like the planet, she was slowly drowning. But instead of allowing the nearly invisible effects of her condition to overwhelm or paralyze her, Caffall uses her illness as a lens to look at the crisis of climate change.

Directed: Scott K. Foley
Written: Eiren Caffall

Chicago Avenue Moon

website

Chicago Avenue Moon is a responsive, generative music app that uses a set of variables including date, time, phase of the moon, and GPS location, to determine how its music unfolds, in real-time.

Composer Joshua Dumas wrote 1000 brief musical phrases which the app manipulates, sequences, and layers to create trillions and trillions of variations, a unique experience with every listen.

Developed with Junecloud’s Mike Piontek, recorded by Matt DeWine and Joshua Dumas at Pieholden Suite Sound, and was supported in part by an Individual Artists Program Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events and Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
