Presented by Aurora Picture Show and Houston Museum of Natural Science at Houston Museum of Natural Science - Burke Baker Planetarium

On the 10th anniversary of Media Archeology, a festival that showcases artists who use media to create live multidisciplinary events and performances, Aurora Picture Show welcomes Steve Dietz, Founder, President, and Artistic Director of Northern Lights.mn, as Curator of Media Archeology 2014.

In The Beginning will feature three nights of performances that look to the deep time of pre-history to create compelling experiences of how the world was formed and how the world of our ideas is shaped.

Artists include Miwa Matrayek (April 9), Lynette Wallworth and Piotr Syzhalski.

Created and directed by Australian media artist Lynette Wallworth, Coral: Rekindling Venus is an immersive film experience that takes viewers underwater through the mysterious realm of fluorescent coral reefs in Australia, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia.

Wallworth’s visually stunning Coral: Rekindling Venus is a full-dome film presentation designed to immerse viewers in the complex world of rare marine life with the hope of creating an emotional connection between a global audience and the planet’s endangered coral reefs. This epic project features original deep-sea photography from Emmy Award-winning cinematographer David Hannan, and music by Antony and the Johnsons, renowned Australian Indigenous artist Gurumul and German composer Max Richter.

This event is co-presented with The Houston Museum of Natural Science and takes place in the Houston Museum of Natural Science Burke Baker Planetarium.
