An Evening With William Shatner Asterisk
William Shatner’s image from the original Star Trek series speaks on the subjects of contemporary art and science. Phil Soltanoff, Rob Ramirez, Mari Akita and Joe Diebes have created a dynamic, video Shatner oracle by meticulously cataloguing everything William Shatner ever said on Star Trek. Together, the artists attempt to bravely make Captain James T. Kirk expand our universe.
“Hilarious yet eerie, playful yet purposeful, oblique yet precise, conceiver-director Phil Soltanoff’s An Evening with William Shatner Asterisk proved a dialectical delight; and in its teasing manner and final indirect plea for some small but profound transcendence, it was, pardon the expression, fascinating.” –San Francisco Bay Guardian
