From the 1997 Not Still Art Festival program: "LIVE BLUE LIGHT"
Performance May 10th., 8PM at Gallery A, Cooperstown Art Association:
"Live Blue Light" refers a reactionary description of television held by
some filmmakers in the 1960s and 70s as "that evil blue light". In fact,
it is the "live" aspect of the blue light emanating from the cathode ray
tube which has attracted Goss and Wright to electronic media. Electronic
motion imaging has made real time animation or "image improvisation" possible
for fine artists for the first time. As musicians have understood for millenia,
abstraction, when apprehended, reveals insights into the universal, not
the topical. It is this relationship with the phosphorescent screen which
is celebrated in "Live Blue Light".
