  my house, I explore the back roads off of California StateRoute 126,
  finding small, historic towns, farms, and railway tracksnestled between
  mountains and orchards - a landscape that evokes a dream of
  Californiaï¿1Ž2s past. Along the way, I meet Jaime,Blanca, and Hugo, a
  group of orange pickers from Michoacan, Mexico, who share withme their
  songs, dreams, aspirations, and thoughts about work.ï¿1Ž2Ursula Brookbank
  will show Crystallography and the She World Archive: Theprincipals of
  X-ray Crystallography used by biochemist Dorothy Hodgkin tostudy
  molecular structures applied to film projection. Ms. Hodgkinwas awarded
  the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1964 for confirming themolecular
  structure of insulin using X-ray Crystallography where acrystal is
  gradually rotated while being bombarded with X-rays producingrefraction
  patterns and molecular data for study. For this salon, recentlyacquired
  16mm film from the SHE WORLD ARCHIVE similarly becomes a lightbeam
  projected through gradually rotating crystals. PabloMarï¿1Ž2n, in town
  from Buenos Aires, will show his brand new Angelus novus, andwe'll have
  a selection of new items by Mark Toscano.

"BLONDE COBRA is anerratic narrative no, not really a narrative, it's only stretched outin time for convenience of delivery. It's a look in on an explodinglife, on a man of imagination suffering pre-fashionable Lower EastSide deprivation and consumed with American 1950s, 40s, 30s disgust.Silly, self-pitying, guilt-strictured and yet triumphing on one levelover the situation with style - enticing us into an absurd moralposture the better to dismiss us with a regal 'screw off.'"
