Buffalo Arts Studio presents Carl Lee’s Unity Island, a film installation about a ¼ square mile piece of land in Buffalo, NY. Lee’s practice examines ideas of perception, memory, and the spatialization of time. Unity Island Park is a sliver of land that sits between the Niagara River and Black Rock Canal, and is built on a landfill. Shot on 16mm film, the project consists of multiple projections, audio interviews, and ambient sounds that hint at other histories and experiences. Lee’s exhibition includes several individualized sound installations as well as asynchronous projections that work together to disorient the visitor and amplify the fragmented nature of all of these experiences. Carl Lee is a media artist based in Buffalo, NY. Lee received a BA from Harvard University in Visual and Environmental Studies in 1992 and an MFA in Film and Media Arts from Temple University in Philadelphia in 2000. He teaches film and video production and works as the technical director in the Department of Media Study at the University at Buffalo. Lee was the recipient of the 2023 NYSCA Support for Artists grant. For more information, please visit www.buffaloartsstudio.org
