…or at least a cacaphony of clacks coming from a roomfull of viewmasters.
The evening was a huge success and great fun. It started with a screening of Play, a fantastic and beautiful film from Chilean filmmaker Alicia Scherson. She was kind enough to come to the Walker for her screening, answer some questions, and hang out at the reception that followed.

During the reception, Vladimir was on hand to present two different Vladmaster shows. (see the image above) I have been looking forward to these for months, and I am happy to say they did not disappoint. They made for a magical experience, giving the sense of being alone in a crowd in the best possible way. If you happened to miss the shows, Vladimir left some of the Vladmaster shows for sale in the Walker Shop. Not only are the shows incredible, but the Vladmasters are beautiful art objects as well, each created by hand.
