Live Stage: Nijika : event [us NYC]

nij.jpgNijika: an ephemeral intimate event about light and sound . . . like fireflies in the city, with performances by CJ, sawako, o.blaat, Roberto Carlos Lange :: October 3, 2009; 7:00 – 9:00 pm :: Grand Ferry Park between Grand Street, West River Street, and the East River, Brooklyn, NY.

CJ / Chris Jordan explores the medium of light, movement, and time through the use of technology. His installations have appeared at the Moma, The New Museum, The Whitney, The Museum of Natural History, The Chelsea Museum, Times Square, galleries, clubs and the incidental spaces inbetween. Chris teaches interactive design at Baruch College and NYU. The common elements that define Chris’ work include explorations into memory, photography, film, interactivity, and projections. By examining the political and social implications technology has on us through a diversity of media, his work challenges the viewer to redefine perceptions of audience and performer.
