About

Earcatcher is Linda Diec, Liz Roberts, and Lexie Stoia. Each month we will post a two minute (or less) film or video project on this site. The entire thing must be produced in 24 hours or less.

Here’s how it works:
1) Lexie records and edits sound. The sound drives the entire project.
2) Linda forms a concept to focus the way the sound will inform the picture.
3) Liz shoots video and edits it.

The impetus: to explore sound and how it is married to the visual in a freeing, low-pressure collaborative project.

Our overall philosophy is tied to the Nowhere Manifesto. Poster sizes are available here.

NOWHERE MANIFESTO

Making art is a comment on time and place, even if it is an unconscious one.
We (Humans of Earth) are shaped by our environments and experiences.

Then what about the artist who lives in the bland pancake of the American Midwest?

Columbus is a city known to be a cross section of the United States if it is known at all.
Every type of person is represented here.
Test Market USA.

We are a marketer’s wet dream.
We live together in relative harmony.
We have no body of water and the tallest point in the county is a landfill.
Not even a lake on which to be a mistake.
Endless flatness in four directions,
all corn and soybeans.

We cancel each other out!
When you mix all the colors of paint together you get mud.
We are in touch with the void.

Shitty is pretty.
Lint & dust in the corners of a sprawling campus dump hole:
more interesting than the top of the empire state building.

What we do here will never be co-opted by the mainstream art world.
The lack of pressure to succeed is freeing.

An incubator for weirdness.
Embrace the nowhere-ness!
