"If you put your ear to the ground you can hear the island seething with life."

Samantha Persons is an interdisciplinary artist working in sculpture and new media, her work can be seen in sculpture parks around the country. She recently took part in a two person show at Lawndale, exhibiting meticulous pattern and image based drawings.

For this exhibition, Persons is the first artist to complete a work for a film format designed and installed at Capitol Street Gallery. The format is composed of multiple projectors to form a screen spanning over thirty five feet wide, this super letterbox format has a pixel dimension of 6x1k.

Persons' first composition for the format is a five minute silent composite film, exploring queerness within science fiction. The footage sources include NASA’s Solar Dynamic Observatory, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, Mars Science Laboratory- Curiosity, European Space Agency’s Rosetta spacecraft, International Space Station, Pelinger Archives, personal footage, motion graphics, as well as hand drawn imagery.
