Courtney Asztalos (US)

Poison Ivy Fever Dream is a work that creates an intimate setting for the viewer to experience the dissonance and tension of a body experiencing new spaces within the backdrop of Berlin.  The feeling of melancholy, desire, and disassociation build through the audio while the visuals point to parallel yet familiar worlds creating a slightly alien and dreamlike cascade.  Courtney Asztalos took all of the photographs, and composed the music using a Lowrey 1970s Teeny Genie organ, a Lowrey 1970s Wandering Genie organ, a red hollow body electric guitar, a Realistic 70’s PA microphone delay component and her voice.
