M/x


Luke Savisky

M/x is a large interactive digital video projection onto the towers of the MacDonald Observatory in the Davis Mountains above Marfa, TX. This is the first in Savisky’s series of projection pieces in remote locations. M/x ’s central theme is the science and technology that allow humans to redefine our relationship to nature, even as that same environment faces imminent destruction. Savisky uses found and original 16mm and 35mm film footage, often layered into a montage through the use of multiple projectors; M/x weaves together a sensory, non-linear narrative that exists in direct relation to the site on which it is projected.
