Traces with Elikem
RT: 07:00 Ariana Gerstein
Traces performed and captured by scanner and monitor surfaces. Other surfaces include paper and film. Light reflects and passes through, layers slide past and sometimes meet, punctuated by sounds vibrating and percussive. With the participation of Samuel Elikem Kwame Nyamuame, Ph.D. Visiting Assistant Professor of Ethnomusicology and Dance Departments of Music, Theater (Dance) & Africana Studies.

Inspired by Raul Ruiz’s theories on cinema spectatorship, this talismanic film wishes good and/or ill fortune (depending on the case) to all cinema travelers and their many self-projected doubles.

The strange tale of an underground typist whose work makes the glitterati go gaga. Based on a poem of the same name by Marc Zegans, from "The Typewriter Underground."
How Flowers Never Became a Food Group
RT: 04:44 Charlotte Clermont
If asked to say what this work is about in one word, the answer—which is woven into the soundtrack—would be a Joycean one: it’s a “collideorscape.” I have recycled imagery such as cages, a toy robot, and brain convolutions; newer motifs include a ballet dancer, corsets, and alchemical vessels containing birds. These elements are arranged and rearranged into different patterns.

Time-lapses of cacti and succulent over the course of a year. Environmental data drives the tone and filtration of the sounds while the rising and setting of the sun illuminates plant growth in and out phase with each each other.
The Glass Note
RT: 09:00 Mary Helena Clark
In The Glass Note, a collage of sound, image, and text explore cinema's inherent ventriloquism. Across surface and form, the video reflects on voice, embodiment, and fetish through the commingling of sound and image.
And By The Night
RT: 09:45 Anna Kipervaser
After a period of no revelations, Surah al-Duha was revealed to Prophet Muhammad, stating that God had neither forsaken nor forgotten him. And to be patient. The film is also a response to my abortion.
Winter's First Moons
RT: 03:17 Kathleen Rugh
Following the winter solstice, the longest nights of the year prevail. Through these darkest nights the moon reaches to its fullest. Filmed over numerous nights the moons of different phases are brought together in the black sky. Through multiple exposures on film and editing created in-camera, the moons move and bounce off one another in unpredictable ways. Official NASA sound recordings from space help activate their actions. The stoic moon breaks free and gravitates at will.

Sequential images sourced from dozens of massage books are activated to reflect on recent public conversation from this past year surrounding bodies, massage, and trauma. Ease the pain from past physical and mental distress. The body remembers. Aches may linger. Lay prone, breathe deeply, release tension.
Missing In-Between the Physical Proper

Relations between the planet, bodies, death, and transformation.

Airplane space is inhabited by characters for whom ‘escape’, one of the promises of airplane technology, proves elusive.
