Terminal is pleased to present Whiteout by Jason Sloan in the Physical Space


Whiteout is a new series of live FM transmission performances exploring and questioning the aesthetic of noise on the radio. These new textural works are created live and in the moment through the use of multiple analog electronic instru- ments and a 7-watt FM transmitter. Each work is recorded directly off the radio as it was potentially heard by the listener and take place in undisclosed locations in cities across the united states throughout the summer and fall of 2012. So far the Whiteout itinerary includes Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston, Austin and Los Angeles in addition to a residency at The Wave Farm at Free103point9, a New York State-based nonprofit arts organization defining and cultivating the genre Transmission Arts. A collected set of all the performances in the Whiteout series will be released as a deluxe limited edition, collectable vinyl box set available sometime in early 2013.

Jillian Mcdonald, October 1 – November 2, 2012

Jillian Mcdonald, Terminal Physical Space

Terminal will present the work of Jillian Mcdonald from October 1 – November 2, 2012 in its physical space in the APSU Woodward Library.

“I incorporate performance into videos, installations, and participatory artworks. My work examines popular film genres such as romance or horror in relation to their effect on audiences and devotees. Whereas earlier works deal with “celebrity” and the misplaced intimacy fans imagine with their silver screen idols, recent works focus on American horror films. Unlike contemporary horror film directors, I avoid extreme gore and violence in favour of stripped down narrative and archetypes. Research plays an important role in my work, and to that end my process includes reading film theory, watching popular films, and exploring fan culture.”
