Description Technical Specs
Six contemporary film artists take viewers into surreal worlds of delirium and paranoia in this cutting-edge anthology. The reigning proponent of cut-and-paste, Lewis Klahr nourishes intensely private visions on the compost heap of collective fantasy through old magazines, comic books, and cocktail iconography. Complex, full of charm, and pervaded by themes of loss, Janie Geiser simultaneously creates and deconstructs fantasies through doll-like figurines, cut-outs, and found objects in her cryptic narratives. Jim Trainor's handmade animations explore the inner lives of animals that appear strangely self-aware even as they instinctually copulate, feed, fight, kill and die. Finally, the Bay Area collective of Rodney Ascher, Syd Garon, and Eric Henry conjure diabolical visions with digital savvy.
