KINETOSCOPE

CHRISTINA ANGELINA + EASE ONE

The Kinetoscope is a circular mural inside an abandoned water tank in Slab City, California. 

Visitors must climb a staircase to the top of the 15-foot tank and descend a ladder into the structure. Once inside, amplified sound reverberation accompanies two series of artistically rendered female faces. Faces are captured in a variety of freeze frames and combined to create motion, inspired by the work of photographer Eadweard Muybridge, the designer of the original Kinetoscope.

Each face is imbued with a specific emotion tied to a meaningful moment in artist Chrstina Angelina’s life. The subtle interconnectedness of these moments creates a sense of "magic" in its movement as each form contributes to the natural flow of the piece. Her incorporation of totem animals continues through with the inclusion of raven and rattlesnake skulls.

Faces sit atop a ghostwritten blend of Eastern/Western writing styles by Ease One. These hidden words are the lyrics to Society by Eddie Vedder. A limited color palette subtly unifies elements of figuration, lettering and graf futurism in a sophisticated, stylized manner.
