Ptarmigan operated in Tallinn from 2011-2014. We no longer maintain any presence in Tallinn, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced at Ptarmigan during these years.

Lori Felker and Adam Strohm (USA)
22 November, 2011 - 29 November, 2011

The duo of Lori Felker and Adam Strohm have been collaborating for over ten years. Their most recent work is a series of videos that explores divergences from the documentary form through a playful obfuscation of the lines between fact and fiction and the nebulous relationship that binds text and image. During their stay in Tallinn, Felker and Strohm will collect aural, visual, and written source material for an upcoming short video, experimenting with the repetition of daily accumulation as a generative process.

Lori Felker employs many forms/formats, practices frequently with others, and tries hard not to shy away from expressing her thoughts on human behavior, travel, inter-activity, frustration, failure and political irritants. Her work has screened internationally at festivals such as the Rotterdam International Film Festival; NYFF: Views from the Avant-Garde; VideoEx, Zurich; the Wexner Center for the Arts, Ohio; and  Curtas Vila do Conde Film Festival, Portugal. Lori is currently a member of the faculty and staff at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Festival Coordinator for the Chicago Underground Film Festival.

Adam Strohm is a writer of words, maker of sounds, and creator of two-dimensional images. His writing appears regularly on the pages of Dusted Magazine and Signal to Noise.

Felker and Strohm live in Chicago with Czubek.
