September 24 Altar of Film

Diode Gallery is Portland's gallery dedicated to electronic art. Right across from Ground Kontrol.

The Church of Robotron is their current installation with interactive altars. The gallery is usually open by appointment and for events. Some work of the work is visible 24x7 through the windows.

The Church of Robotron presents its rituals tonight and first Thursday at 7PM. The Diode and Robotron website copy is worth a read.

The altars are based on pairs of game controllers versus the machines. The Church of Robotron www.churchofrobotron.com at Diode Gallery for Electronic Art www.diodegallery.com 514 NW Couch. Ritual at 7PM Free

The Cinema Project is a well curated presenter of experimental film on celluloid. Many of the works have never been telecined to video, an expensive process.

To raise funds for their season, they are showing loops by Mia Ferm and found footage by Stephen Slappe with live accompaniment by Matt Carlson of Golden Retriever.

The evening finishes with DJ DNA of xray.fm playing obscure 80's finds. Presented by the Cinema Project www.cinemaproject.org at Holocene www.holocene.org 1001 SE Morrison 8:30PM $8
