you've been by Lumonics Light & Sound Gallery, then you already know
it's unlike any other gallery in the city. Artist Dorothy Tanner sculpts
amazing, impossible-to-describe works featuring light as a main component;
the gallery also plays host to events that include music, yoga classes,
meditation, Chinese Qigong, and workshops on expanding your consciousness.
First Friday at Lumonics
Remarkable nonagenarian Dorothy
Tanner is still creating new illuminated works using acrylic, LED
lights -- and sometimes water. Remarkable
nonagenarian Dorothy Tanner is still creating new illuminated works
using acrylic, LED lights -- and sometimes water. Says the 91-year-old
Tanner: "The major challenge for me in art is to keep under control
the tyranny of a logical mind. The spirit that moves me is capricious,
unruly and irreverent. Most of my work grows out of intuitive impulse
-- the rest gets under way by just playing." This is a perfect chance
to get into Tanner's work and visit her trippy Lumonics Studio.

The Explorer DVD was selected for the first Video Lounge at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. The exhibit "showcased some of today's global avant-garde video artists." The Tanner/Billard visuals and music are an extension of the pioneering video art form of Dorothy Tanner and Mel Tanner (1925-1993), beginning in 1978. It is rooted in the live visual performances that began in the Lumonics Light and Sound Theatre in 1969.
You can watch the videos on The Explorer web page.
