    Master director Patricio Guzmán travels 10,000 feet above sea level to the driest desert on earth for this remarkable documentary. Here, the sky is so translucent that it allows

    astronomers to see the boundaries of our universe. Yet the Atacama Desert climate also keeps human remains intact: pre-Columbian mummies; explorers and miners; and the remains of disappeared political prisoners. Women sift the desert soil for the bones of their loved ones, while archaeologists uncover traces of ancient civilizations and astronomers examine the most distant and oldest galaxies. Melding celestial and earthly quests,NOSTALGIA FOR THE LIGHT is a gorgeous, moving, and deeply personal odyssey.

    There will be a Q&A with director Patricio Guzman on 3/18/11.
    Tickets: Adults $13, Children 12 and under $9, Seniors $9 Members $8

    The standardized format of the books (mixed media on wood), offers a neutral surface onto which I stage my little dramas, project memories and vent anxieties. They are make-believe sketchbooks, pasted over and cut up, storyboards with movable pages. Referential in nature and constructivist in process, they could be looked upon as modern day (miniature) diptychs. I try not to plan them out too much in advance or pre-design them. They have an unfinished feel, a grit due to their being themselves both studies and works in progress.  In a sense, the notebooks are a parody of the design process itself, a virtual sketchpad that has become my personal narrative.

  • Mar 17, 2011 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm
  • Location: Scosha & Co.
  • Description:

    Are you curious about an olfactory adventure? As part of a 5 Senses series, Mice at Play is organizing an introductory perfume workshop with Brooklyn-based aroma maven Anne McClain who will teach women the fundamentals of perfumery, and equip us with a basic understanding of standard perfume vocabulary and concepts.  Throughout the course, natural and synthetic ingredients that form the perfumers’ palate will be sampled, and their origins, properties, and uses will be discussed. We will then dissect several mainstream and niche fragrances to see if we can identify the raw materials contained in them, and discuss how harmonious blends are made.
