Cheap Talk; Collaborations with a Difficult City: Christopher Hawthorne and Joshua Wolf Shenk

Clockshop

2806 Clearwater St., Los Angeles, CA

7:30pm to 9:00pm

For the Fall 2014/Winter 2015 series Josh Shenk, author of the recently published book, Powers of Two, Seeking the Essence of Innovation in Creative Pairs will curate three Cheap Talk conversations focused on collaborations with, in and around Los Angeles, a city that presents many challenges.

Christopher Hawthorne has been the architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times since 2004. Before coming to The Times, he was architecture critic for Slate and a frequent contributor to the New York Times. He is the author, with Alanna Stang, of The Green House: New Directions in Sustainable Architecture. Hawthorne grew up in Berkeley and has a bachelor’s from Yale, where he readied himself for a career in criticism by obsessing over the design flaws in his dormitory, designed by Eero Saarinen.

Joshua Wolf Shenk is a curator, essayist, and author, most recently, of Powers of Two: Seeking the Essence of Innovation in Creative Pairs (Eamon Dolan Books/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). His magazine pieces include cover stories in Harper’s, Time, and The Atlantic, where his essay "What Makes Us Happy?" was the most read article in the history of that magazine’s website. His work has also appeared in Slate, The New Yorker, The New York Times, and the national bestseller Unholy Ghost: Writers on Depression, edited by Nell Casey. His first book, Lincoln’s Melancholy, was named one of the best books of 2005 by The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Atlanta-Journal Constitution, and won awards from The Abraham Lincoln Institute, the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, and the National Mental Health Association.

Benjamin Seror’s improvised stories are inspired by phantoms of literature, art history and everyday adventures. Over three Tuesday evenings in the REDCAT Lounge, he develops and performs a new version of his latest project, The Marsyas Hour, an impromptu script for a TV pilot that recounts everyday life on Mount Olympus through the eyes of the young satyr Marsyas. Apollo defeated Marsyas in a flute contest, and had him tied to a tree to be frayed alive – but Marsyas survived the punishment and committed his life to defeating the gods.

Performance Dates: Tues Nov 18, 25 & Dec 2 7:30pm

Beyond 3D: The Animated World of David OReilly

8:30pm

(Nov. 24) Having popularized stripped-down graphics and glitch effects, David OReilly opened up the aesthetic horizons of 3D animation with richly imagined lo-fi absurdism and a surprising soulfulness. Known for the influential shorts Please Say Something (2009), winner of top awards at the Berlin and Ottawa film festivals, and The External World (2010), he was Cartoon Network’s first-ever “guest director” on the fifth-season opener of Adventure Time, and created video games for Spike Jonze’s Oscar-nominated film Her. The animation star has since developed his own high-concept game, Mountain.
