Description

If you're familiar with the story-telling extravaganzas of the British Albert Smith, of how he scaled Mt. Blanc with a thousand porters and with a champagne dinner at every rest, then surely you can appreciate a good tale. This is a narrator's tale of discovery of the world's greatest invisible mountain, of how The Eight and their caravan hiked into the mountain and ultimately then all was none.

Notes on a "Tale of Non-Euclidean and Symbolically Authentic Mountaineering Adventures" brings together the visual and the literary disciplines of Roxane Hopper and MFAW alumnus Thomas Hodge. This project attempts to see the end of Rene Daumal's unfinished novel "Mt. Analogue." Roxane and Thomas masquerade through video and live reading as one story-teller. The result is opposite directions, side-by-side, along the same path
