Laced for New Noise

Full Color Cover © Catherine Rutgers 2014My first movie! Inspired by the New Noise Continuum and designed as visuals for a live performance, the soundtrack is your environment, so listen closely.

The Vimeo link is and the twelve still images used to create it grace this post. The source is one of my covers for the National Poetry Magazine of the Lower East Side. The “Full Color” issue, 1992, spray paint and silkscreen on cardstock, one-hundred-fifty copies, each made by hand, back when my moniker was Catherine Sand.

Those were the days of anarchy at its best: anyone who brought 150 copies of their work could have pages in the zine, which was lovingly collated and stapled together in a round-robin process. Kind of like a quilting bee for the literature-art-making crowd, if said bee always took place in a bar on the Lower East Side. OK, this was fun!

About CatRutgers4Art
