E/x by Luke Savisky Aurora Picture Show presented the seventh annual Media Archeology Festival this past weekend. The mission of the festival (originally conceived by Evan Roth) is to showcase artists who use, manipulate, recycle and reinvent electronic media to create live multidisciplinary performances. Video artist Luke Savisky transformed the Buffalo Bayou East End Silo into a giant canvas for "E/x". Savisky projected faces and bodies of performance participants, original film footage and found elements from his 16mm, 35mm and digital archive to evoke themes of defense, confinement, emergence and transformation.
