Lanceurs d'alerte (Whistleblower) | La Gaîté Lyrique | Paris by Emma Charles

White Mountain will be screening as part of the Lanceurs d'alerte Festival at La Gaîté Lyrique running from 11-29th January 2017. 

The short film program examines the influence of technology on terrestrial ecosystems in the geological period of the Anthropocene and its impact on the climate. By revealing hidden infrastructures, questioning the experts' monopoly of truth, or pushing post-human scenarios to the extreme, artists deconstruct the great stories that freeze the future.

White Mountain will be screening alongside films by Susan Schuppli, Moreshin Allahyari and Daniel Rourke. 5pm 29th January.

South Kiosk presents And the Earth Screamed, Alive*, a solo exhibition by Emma Charles,   featuring a multi media installation of her 16mm film White Mountain (2016).

South Kiosk has invited Emma Charles for And the Earth Screamed, Alive to transform its space and take the viewer on a journey through the concealed and protected architecture of the data center, creating an immersive installation by deconstructing 16mm film project White Mountain, through a combination of projections, tv screens, monitors and print, this solo presentation focuses on the handling of digital information. Also for this exhibition Charles has created a soundscape using a variety of audio recording devices. Gathering vibrations and electromagnetic sounds from the rock face above the data center as well as deep inside the server rooms itself, Charles has created an audio composition both revealing and processing the reverberations of the hidden environment.
