Feeling Tones: Pop-Up Video Installation
November 2nd , 12:00pm – 7:00pm
Multimedia artist Leigh Davis has thought a lot about death and dying. Now, she’s thinking about what comes next—in the afterlife. In her new video series Feeling Tones, Davis explores how we construct our beliefs about human consciousness and a possible afterlife. She focuses on how abstraction, imagery, and non-linear narrative help us process discomfort and imagine decisions based on assumptions about our lives and deaths.
Price: Free. No registration required.
Following the screening, at 7pm, please join Leigh Davis for an artist talk in conversation with Dr. Harry Weil, Green-Wood’s director of education and public programs. Click here to register.
Leigh Davis is an interdisciplinary artist and educator. Her work explores grief, memory, and storytelling—how these universal experiences help define what it means to be human. Trained as a photographer, her work now ranges across media, from sculpture and installation to sound, performance, and video. Davis has shown work at Open Source Gallery (Brooklyn), BRIC (Brooklyn), EFA Project Space (New York), Oliver Art Center at CCA (Oakland), and MICA (Baltimore). In fall 2020, Davis presented Vigil, a site-specific sound installation in Green-Wood’s Historic Chapel.
