Diana Thater at Zwirner

Diana Thater’s film projection “Between Science and Magic” at Zwirner is a short filmloop that combines various levels of optic discourse. The projected film of the theater, the two perspectives of the magicians, the optical illusion of the disappearing rabbit, are all very clever.

What I liked the most about this piece is the sound of the cranking projectors, very impactful for engaging the dialogue of the past and present consumption of film, video, and performance.
