NIGHT LIGHT
Saturday, April 2 (7:30-10pm)
Location: Buffalo Bayou East
Co-presented by Aurora Picture Show and Buffalo Bayou Partnership 
Free Admission, Suggested RSVP HERE

Aurora Picture Show and Buffalo Bayou Partnership co-present this special, free-admission public event featuring artists’ video projections activating waterfront structures along a 3/4-mile stretch of Buffalo Bayou East trails. Houston artists Julia Barbosa-Landois, Marcelese Cooper, and Input/Output have been commissioned to create new, site-specific, media art works for a landing, an understructure of a bridge, and decommissioned gravel silos within green spaces along the bayou. These works, along with music and community food trucks and vendors, will be connected by paved pathways for walking and biking. Join us any time between 7:30 and 10pm for this festive, uniquely Houston experience! (In the case of inclement weather, Night Light will take place on Saturday, April 23, 7:30-10pm)

1.
JULIA BARBOSA LANDOIS
Timing
, 2022
Julia Barbosa Landois is a performance, installation and video artist. Her work teases profundity and absurdity from the everyday and examines the relationship between the intimate and the public. In this work, the artist explores the timescales of plant and aquatic life specific to the Buffalo Bayou urban landscape. Incorporating specimens collected at the bayou headwaters, animation, and an original score by Jalen Baker, the installation illuminates the partially submerged understructure of a bridge. 

2.
MARCELESE COOPER
It Doesn’t Seem Real, 2022
Marcelese Cooper is a filmmaker and artist whose work is inspired by personal identity as well as the beauty of the human connection and storytelling. Focusing on the juxtaposition between the Buffalo Bayou’s natural form and the industrial structures that surround it, Cooper brings the idea of a “concrete forest” alive. Located on a series of steps leading to the water’s edge, this installation consists of projected video, sound including vocalized stories contributed by members of the Houston community through a “story-drive” hotline, and chalk-drawn text. www.marcelesecooper.art

INPUT/OUTPUT
Untitled, 2022
Input/Output, the artist collaborative of Billy Baccam and Alex Ramos, repurposes and creates new forms of technology with the goal of creating art that inhabits a physically moving and visually stimulating space. This colorful, abstract video and sound installation utilizes decommissioned concrete gravel containers referred to as “The Silos” along Buffalo Bayou. Responding to this industrial structure, the lines between the digital and the physical will be blurred resulting in an experience that is both playful and immersive.
