“Breaking Earth”

The exhibition “Breaking Earth” is an improbable mixture of sights and sounds. The multimedia installation, created by filmmaker Alfred Guzzetti and composer Kurt Stallmann, features natural images — trees, rivers, oceans, clouds, rock, sand, etc. — cast on five large screens. Soundtracks that would normally complement these environments accompany the images — but then the images collide, and so do the sounds. Soon you’re hearing crashing waves while seeing clouds. The pairings are bizarre. The viewer gets to view the middle of the ocean while listening to wind blowing through trees, or watch a sandstorm to the sound of water trickling through rocks. The show opens with a reception today from 6 to 8 p.m. and runs noon to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, through April 27. DiverseWorks, 1117 East Freeway. For information, call 713-223-8346 or visit www.diverseworks.org.
