The 3D Stereoscopic Viewing World of the Vladmaster

SAT, MAR 20 / 7 & 8:30 pm
A live performance featuring Vladamir and the 3-D Vladmaster !

Vladamir lives in Oregon where she projects movies at the Northwest Film Centre and has been hand making and selling her own Vladmaster 3D stereoscopic disks since 2003. Vladmasters are handmade ViewMasterTM reels designed, photographed and hand assembled by Vladamir. They make use of toys, neglected household objects, and odd ephemera to tell 28 picture tales of train chases, missing steam shovels, disastrous dinner parties, and overly adventurous cockroaches. In 2004, she debuted her first 3D performance of the Lucifugia Thigmotaxis at the Portland Documentary and Experimental Film Festival. Since then she has traveled across the United States and the UK with her performances including shows at the Walker Art Centre in Minneapolis, the Flaherty Film Seminar in New York and the Mad Cat Film Festival in San Francisco.

For her 3D Stereoscopic performances in Winnipeg, audience members will be given a 3D viewer and a set of disks, and will then be led through the following stories featuring music, narration and sound effects.

LUCIFIGIA THIGMOTAXIS
Lucifugia means light-fleeing. Thigmotaxis is the need for pressure on all sides of your body in order to feel safe. Together these two words describe the essential nature of the cockroach. Our story concerns the adventures of one such cockroach named Stanley and the events that transpire when he dares to leave the safety of his home behind the refrigerator. Stanley’s story is told on a mini-cd accompanying the reels.

THE PUBLIC LIFE OF JEREMIAH JONES
On March 19, 1992 a recreational airplane flying low over the Cascade foothills noticed an unusual number of orange forms dotting the forest floor. Further investigation revealed 86 earthmoving vehicles idle and overgrown with weeds spread over five acres of forest. The Public Life of Jeremiah Jones is a Vladmaster investigation of this occurrence and the man who may or may not have been responsible for it. The story is told in dioramas built from tiny model railroad men and 55 cent plastic bulldozers. Almost none of the objects are larger than one inch in diameter.

FEAR AND TREMBLING
Based on a dinner party as seen from inside the head of someone who probably shouldn’t have come, escape is sought and perhaps found. Oranges and blues dominate the color scheme. Soup and prawns are on the menu. This Vladmaster is narration-less.

ACTAEON AT HOME
Actaeon, to the ancient Greeks, was a hunter unlucky enough to get a good look at Artemis bathing naked amongst her nymphs. For his trespasses, Actaeon was transformed into a stag and then devoured by his own hounds. This Actaeon, may or may not have anything to do with the historical Actaeon. He is a small man in a room with striped wallpaper and antlers and a typewriter and a collection of Currier & Ives prints. Oh, there is also a train chase.

Curated by Kier-La Janisse and Big Smash! Productions.
