Los Angeles-based artist Kerry Tribe works in a film, video and installation to investigate memory, perception, and subjectivity.  Northern Lights is a 16 mm film that explores encounters with light through abstract imagery of colored light. Inspired by her personal experiences facing blinding white light on a snow-covered highway and witnessing the northern lights during a cross-country trek, Tribe’s installation projects film footage of a psychedelic optical light device. The film is accompanied by eerie sounds of a lyricon, an obsolete wind instrument/synthesizer.
