Star Noise: Recent Videos By Julia Oldham says
Julia Oldham weaves love stories out of the complexities of physics and math, the mating dances of insects, and chance encounters with wild animals in a forest. Oldham collaborates with scientists to tease out poetic and wondrous elements of physics and nature, which she then weaves into romantic fairy tales and myths in her video works, drawings, and songs.

Video artist Julia Oldham’s characters are on sensuous journeys through scientific and mathematical worlds. A woman engages in increasingly odd mathematical tasks as she chases after the infinite; a bereft researcher weeps for the loss of a black hole research probe; Laika the Soviet space dog floats into orbit and takes in the vast loneliness of space. In this program, the artist will talk about growing up with a physicist dad and her current obsession with science and love followed by a screening of four short videos. Oldham will screen Laika’s Lullaby (6:30), Farewell Brave Voyager (4:39), Star Noise (8:47), and Infinitely Impossible (10:30).
