SENSES OF TIME. Wenhua Shi, 2018, 16mm to digital video, sound, 5:05
Senses of Time depicts the lyrical and poetic passage of time. The work reflects on time and focuses on defining subjective and perceptual time with close attention to stillness, decay, disappearance, and ruins.
WINTER ISLAND. Peaches Goodrich, 2016, 16mm to digital video, sound, 3:12
Shot & hand processed in Salem + Beverly, MA on November 20, 2016 Using only in camera editing, fades, cross dissolves, multiple exposures, and back-winding, this film was shot on Winter Island on 100' of B&W 16mm film.
NOVA REMNANTS. Stefan Grabowski, 2016, digital video, sound, 10:32
A nova remnant consists of matter left behind by a cataclysmic nuclear explosion, causing the intense and sudden brightening of a star. Due to the relatively short timespan over which they occur, nova remnants generally no longer exist by the time their light reaches us on Earth.
TRANSIT. Ethan Berry, 2018, Super 8 to digital video, sound, 4:05
Reflections on traveling through space and time.
YOUR DARKNESS. Susan DeLeo, 2018, Super 8 to digital video, sound, 4:42
A lyrical journey with Super 8 film and sound. A stream of consciousness piece conceived from dark wanderings and trance-like states in and out of the western landscape.
ORANGE BAND. Sarah Bliss, 2017, digital video, sound, 4:44
A contemporary landscape that explores the post-human and post-industrial, searching out new ways to engage the body on the land. By engaging the camera apparatus as a literal extension of my body, I bridge interior and exterior worlds, blurring the edge of what is "me" and what is "outside me.” Psychogeography made palpable.
FLOWERBED. Robert Todd, 2017, 16mm, silent, 3:19
Flowers and their ways. (Images cascading in the camera over the course of a single roll, on a single afternoon).
PORTRAIT. Douglas Urbank, 2017,16mm, silent, 5:15
An imagined portrait, handmade, improvised, stream of consciousness.
ASTROLOGY. Brittany Gravely, 2018, 16mm, silent, 2:45
An ancient artifact, an alchemical algorithm, astrological archaeology.
OBLONG BOX. Robert Todd, 2016, 16mm, sound, 7:45
Resting places: The weight of distances between lives brought together via passageways through and to the ends of things.
LE TRÉSOR. Stefan Grabowski. 2016, 16mm, silent, 1:46
Walking through Saint-Aquilin-de-Corbion, July 2016. A light rain fell steadily, slowly saturating my clothes and leaving me with a lingering chill, followed by a violent fever and a sleepless night. The treasure I found there was dingy and tarnished, but precious still.
