Comfort Stations

16mm | 26 min | color & b/w | 2018

All this material was found. From what we can gather, it makes up some sort of psychological test. A couple, seemingly non-professionals, created the test. We don’t have their names, only their initials: B and K.

In a box we found two film cans and a folder. Inside film can A there was a roll of 16mm picture negative. Inside film can B there was a roll of 16mm sound negative.

External Shudders

Studies for a new insect cinema
35mm slides, external shutters, rotating screen | 40 min | 2019

We present our existing attempts at creating a new insect cinema based on the theory of spirit anarchy put forth by Dagmara Král, creator of the first insect cinema.

(Please keep in mind this cinema is not intended for human subjects. This presentation is meant to be solely illustrative. Any experiential effects are strictly peripheral.)

Marvelous Movie Mondays: Mall Madness

EPFC | November 4th, 2019

guest curator: Amy Ruhl

The theme of this month is MALL MADNESS: four moving image works that highlight the architectural space of shopping centers—whether as narrative backdrop, or character in itself. Complicated feelings about consumption abound!

To begin, George Romero’s 1978 film Dawn of the Dead. Written in collaboration with Dario Argento

What better place to hide from the flesh eating undead then a suburban shopping mall?

You can watch Amy’s video Hysterical Reenactments: WITCH here:

Description from Amy: Multiple forms of reenactment combine with interview footage to create a video portrait of the short-lived feminist activist group, WITCH (Women’s International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell). Having reenacted WITCH’s hex of Wall Street on Halloween of 1968, I communicated with original member, Peggy Dobbins, to compare our experiences from 1968 and 2014. Re-performing text from Dobbins’ interview in my home and inter-cutting with fragments of our conversation and documentation of the recent hex, layers of historical reenactment come together to form something between documentary and lived archive. With hex poems by M.C. Elberg.
