About the Grant

$20,000 to support DUTCH A/V (MAP 2009), a live-edited environmental film performance by Reggie Watts and Tommy Smith that seeks to replicate the first hand experience of being a flâneur in another city. 

About the Project

Infused with sonic landscapes performed live by Reggie Watts, DUTCH A/V is a live-edited environmental film that seeks to replicate the first hand experience of being a fla╠éneur in another city.  In March 2009, Reggie — with collaborator/playwright Tommy Smith and Seattle journalist Brendan Kiley — traveled to Holland and shot over 26 hours of footage, exploring its cities using spy-glasses that recorded everything they saw and heard. DUTCH A/V seeks to re-present this footage using projection technology and stereophonic sound, turning the walls of interior spaces into portals to a foreign landscape thousands of miles away.

DUTCH A/V will be presented at IRT workshop in December 2009.
