29 SpaceTime

29 SpaceTime: Multimedia by Julia Heyward and Perry Hoberman

"Hoberman’s work is as glibly controlled as it is apocalyptic, not just whistling in the graveyard of consumer culture, but driving through it in a minimalist convertible, the radio blaring.” – Artscribe

“Heyward is powerful, with the charisma of a diva and the gut-punch timing of a Lenny Bruce.” – The New York Times


A poignant song cycle performed live with a series of video vignettes and interactive panoramic projections, 29 SpaceTime taps into both collective myth and personal revelation to connect themes such as the trauma of endless war, digital surveillance, creeping mind control, and the prospect of man-made apocalypse. Trailblazing performance and video artist Julia Heyward joins with interactive installation innovator Perry Hoberman to craft a sprawling yet intimate narrative—part docudrama, part speculative fiction—inspired by the personal experiences and beliefs of residents who live near the Marine Corps desert warfare complex in the Mojave, where the nighttime sky abounds with eerie spectacles. The duo also created the original music. 

The Jack H. Skirball Series is curated by Steve Anker and Bérénice Reynaud and supported, in part, by the Ostrovsky Family Fund.
