"soft relations" by Tristan Espinoza

soft relations is an interactive software installation created by Tristan Espinoza for the 2019 Level Ground Residency Program + Festival.

soft relations is a piece of custom software that records people’s relationships over time. It explores how connection and attachment are complicated by technological networks that simulate proximity without retaining the kind of intimacy that comes from a shared sense of place. This friction grounds the work as the artist seeks to find alternative ways of being in relation.

The show will include special programming from Tiny Tech Zines and also include a bar, panel discussion, live performances, and interactive elements curated by the artist.

Into the Noise at Sundance

  • Park City, UT 84060 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Getting to Sundance can be expensive. You could end up dropping thousands of dollars on  housing alone. Into The Noise takes care of all the logistics to make it easier, less expensive, and more memorable for you and your friends!

We handle where to stay, transport to and from the airport, how to get film tickets, getting around Park City during the fest, navigating the festival culture, etc. etc. We also organize private, intimate discussions between filmmakers, artists, and our group throughout the week. In short, we curate a one-of-a-kind Sundance experience for you to enjoy.

For over ten years, our group has been making an annual pilgrimage to the Sundance Film Festival and curating a meaningful experience for others who want to come along. Hailing from L.A. to Chicago to Grand Rapids, Michigan (and lots of places in between), we are a friendly, diverse group of storytellers, spiritual seekers, film nerds, and moviegoers. If you've ever wanted to go to Sundance, there's truly no better way (or better value) than with Into The Noise.

"Más Caras" by Evelyn Quijas Godínez

Más Caras is a multimedia visual art installation created by Evelyn Quijas Godínez for the 2019 Level Ground Residency Program + Festival.

Más Caras – meaning more faces in Spanish, and as one word masks – consists of paintings, collages, masks, sculptures, and assemblages. These works combine colorful Mexican folk-art aesthetics with elements and imagery of Toltec, Aztec, Maya, and Olmec artifacts and juxtaposes them against a contemporary Los Angeles landscape. By creating multiple vignettes which often coexist within a single work, the artist emphasizes an ever-present connectedness that transcends time and space.

The show will feature a live music performance by special guest Luis Perez and include a bar, panel discussion, and interactive elements curated by the artist.
