T2ERU // Michael Trigilio
Friday August 1 2014
12128 presents T2ERU, an exhibition and sound performance by Michael Trigilio. This event is a result of Michael’s work during his participation in 12128’s SUMMER MICRORESIDENCIES program, and showcases existing portions of and new additions to his ongoing T2ERU/MemoryExile project. Creating overlaps between 3D imaging of found objects and science-fiction design elements, his new work explores 12128 as a site of speculation, imagining architectures, landscapes, and starships. The event will also feature a live performance of Trigilio’s analog modular synthesis.

Michael Trigilio is a multimedia artist living in San Diego, California. His works in film, sound, performance, and tactical media have been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore, Anthology Film Archives in New York, Southern Exposure in San Francisco, and San Francisco’s Dancers’ Group. His collaborative public media project Neighborhood Public Radio (with artists Lee Montgomery and Jon Brumit) was included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial, and has been exhibited at the Headlands Center for the Arts and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. Recent collaborative projects include Project Planetaria, with astrophysicist Adam Burgasser and artist Tara Knight, which focuses on interpreting stellar data through performance, sound, and other media. His ongoing multimedia project T2ERU utilizes cutting-edge visualization technologies to examine memory as speculative counter-cultural material. Michael is faculty in the Visual Arts Department at the University of California–San Diego, where he teaches courses in Media Arts and Sound.
