Vision Quest 2012 screen-printed posters by Will Thomas

17 August, 2012 by

9”x24”
$10

We’re selling screen-printed posters to recoup some of our overhead costs. 9”x24”. Metallic yellow & pink ink (which makes a sun gold orange color when crossed) on white paper. Only $10. I took this photo using my laptop camera, so this photo doesn’t do the posters justice … they sparkle in person, especially in sunlight!

We’ll be selling these tonight and tomorrow. These make great gifts, or they are something nice to hang on your wall, or frame and hang on your wall. Do what thou wilt.

Purchasing a poster will help us continue to do to do events like this in the future viz. will help us parlay the proceeds into a designated fund for a potential Vision Quest 2013.

“I could do wonders if I didn’t have a body. But the body grabs me, it slows me, it enslaves me.” — Ponce de Léon

Our PONCE DE LEÓN discovered the fountain of youth and drank of immortality in the waning moments of his life. In an instant, he became old forever – an 80-year old Spaniard who would continue to walk the earth for century after century after century, watching as coral foundations gave way to mangrove swamps, as swamps were drained and buildings were erected, as buildings decayed and swamps returned. Our PONCE DE LEÓN is an im- mortal for whom time poses the greatest dilemma – it is a constant, a given, and his personal battle lies in trying to either arrest time entirely or to make the hands on his clock move ever faster. For PONCE DE LEÓN, time is a problem of body, and only by escaping his container can he escape time itself. (BR)

 

PONCE DE LEÓN will play at DINCA VISION QUEST 2012, on Friday, August 17, as part of the Scintillating Trips series. Click here for DINCA VISION QUEST 2012 program notes.

DINCA VISION QUEST 2012 will host three nights of vision quest festivities in Chicago, including a handful of screenings with live audio/video performances. VISION QUEST’s credo is to translate the dinca.org blog experience into an amalgamated IRL (in real life) experience, to further expand the ambit of experimental film & video, new media art, internet art, and to share the subterranean magic of great artists & filmmakers in a physical and social setting.  In addition to screening work from around the world, it’s our mission to bolster the Chicago arts community by featuring the works of many Chicago filmmakers & artists in a setting that’s free of charge.

The screenings will take place in Thalia Hall (1807 S. Allport St.), a grand old Czech theatre built in 1892 in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago.  Thalia Hall remained in use until the mid 1960s.  Since then, the theatre has largely been abandoned, seeing raves and metal shows in the late ’80s and early ’90s, and most recently, a Space Program multiple-date screening series organized by artist and filmmaker, Ben Russell, during the spring of 2011.  Since then, the theatre has been inactive, and with VISION QUEST 2012, we wish to revive the building with free screenings of contemporary recherché film and video, with subsequent real-time a/v performances. (More information on Thalia Hall.)

Much more information will be released soon; here is the lineup.
