Temporary Distortion Talks At The New School About Their Work

If you are in NYC this week join Temporary Distortion for a discussion at The New School on March 27 at 6PM. Kenneth Collins will be joined by his video and music collaborators, William Cusick and John Sullivan, for a discussion of their artistic process, collaboration and use of technology.  This event is free to the public.


An assemblage of film, performance and visual art, Newyorkland follows 4 police officers struggling with the demands of their chosen profession and the high costs of working within the fraternal and secretive society of the NYPD. Inspired by the gritty cop movies of the 1970s, popular TV police procedurals and real-life cop stories, the production is staged in one of Temporary Distortion’s signature box-like structures. This installation serves as a framework for both the ensemble’s uniquely restrained acting style and as a canvas for its intricate and gorgeous video.
