Rice University Visual and Dramatic Arts Department presents David K. Ross: The Traces of Lost Facts
In collaboration with the Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts exhibit of Canadian artist David K. Ross’s work, Rice University Visual and Dramatic Arts Department will present a program of his short films for two nights.
In addition to a program of recent moving image works to be screened in the Rice Cinema, Ross will present an installation, The Traces of Lost Facts. In the installation visitors will utilize surveyor’s transits to visually “reconstruct” for themselves the making of one of Ross’s films, Théodolitique (2015). Taking its title from the earliest known (511 AD) written description of surveying actives, The Traces of Lost Facts presents a sample of the research materials generated by David K. Ross in the four-year long process of making Théodolitique, a film which draws together the ancient science of land surveying and the contemporary practices of film making.
The exhibit will be on display through October 15.
