MEDIA ARTIST JULIA HEYWARD AT ANTIOCH’S HERNDON GALLERY
By Jud Yalkut
Interactive new media works by videographer/performer Julia Heywood will be presented from 3-5 p.m. on Saturday, November 20 at the Herndon Gallery in the South Hall of Antioch College in Yellow Springs. A Guggenheim, NEA and Rockefeller grantee, Heywood has created multimedia works over the last decade including a time-based self-portrait on DVD-ROM called “Miracles in Reverse,” which presents the artist’s life from the viewpoints of Jesus, her mother and an alien. Also to be presented are excerpts from “Point of View,” a series of “faux windows” using large flat screens of urban and natural continuums intermittently interrupted by “Hollywood” murder and war scenes, daily human and animal routines and the weather. Also on exhibit at Herndon is “Emergent Visions: Young Antiochians Make Art.” (937) 286-8455 or www.antiochcollege.org.
