Brett Williams at Maps

Won't make this one, cause I'll be 1. filling in for Ann Haubrich and Jane Ibur on Literature for the Halibut, then 2. going home to pack for a weekend trip to (gulp) Utah (I always worry I'll get stuck there). Don't know why this always happens to me, but I seem to be out of town for the good stuff (I'm seriously bummed about missing the Lumberyard release party this weekend, for instance).

Anyhow, I'm a big fan of both Brett Williams and Maps. So I'd go to this show if I could. If you're not deejaying and then packing a suitcase, you should go. I'll let Mr. Vogt explain:

Brett's work examines the conventions and techniques used in the film industry to make the viewer believe they are watching reality. In his installations Brett utilizes audio, visual, and projector equipment to simulate situations in which recorded elements slowly fall out of sync, disrupting their ability to convey a believable reality.
