Sandra Gibson, Luis Recoder and Olivia Block have been collaborating as expanded cinema artists since 2007. In 2008, their limited edition DVD Untitled was released on the independent SoS Editions label. In 2009, Sundance Film Festival featured the world premiere of Untitled as a work for high-definition digital projection. Live 16mm projector performances of Untitled in 2009-2010 include the TATE Modern in London, Redcat in Los Angeles, Ballroom Marfa in Texas, and Morra Foundation in Naples. Their second collaborative work, Aberration of Light: Dark Chamber Disclosure, takes advantage of the expanded cinema potential inherent in the 35mm changeover system of standard theatrical projection. Live 35mm projector performances of Aberration of Light in 2011-2012 include Toronto International Film Festival, Conversations at the Edge in Chicago, Serralves Foundation in Porto, and Courtisane Festival in Ghent. The Serralves Foundation event was part of a one-week artists-in-residency at a contemporary arts museum in which the artists developed a site-specific iteration of Aberration of Light for the Álvaro Siza designed theatrical performance space equipped with the 35mm dual-projection changeover system.
