Lary 7 at Silent Barn 2/20/13

Dear Ken, Our mutual friend Lary kicked off Sarah Halpern‘s new Counter Balance series at the reopened silent barn–a monthly series “dedicated to expanding the confines of the film screening to include writing, sound, theater and intermedia.” The theme of Counter Balance is “expanded cinema” but “structural cinema” would have been a better word for Lary’s screening, which began with a light bulb.


I got a christmas card today, a few days late–from my friend Alice Gerard, which included a little Year-End review, “Pictures and Tales of 2010.” Her story for January talked about taking drawing classes at the National Portrait Gallery while she was in Washington, DC to join in the Voices for Creative Non-Violence and Witness Against Torture protests against extensions of the operations at the Guantanamo Bay prison.
