from your desk(top)   mistrust the manufactured image  distrust the assembled picture  give no credence to the massed account  discredit the aggregate narrative  defame the corporate chronicle  denigrate the collective annals  doubt the constructed copy   - consider the clone.    accept the dismantled vision  exalt the forged now brain  subscribe to the ditto  fuel the doodad delusion  nourish the gizmo nightmare  incite the idiot box prophecy  inflame the dingbat phantasm  a film burn becoming pixels as band-aid  a manufactured reinforcement  in the empire of computer and you   feeding machine-vision  the partition of screen   
Traces with Elikem

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.
The Double

The Double

04:00 Jason Sudak

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.
Manicotti

Manicotti

RT: 05:25 Ellen Hemphill, Jim Haverkamp

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

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.
Helios

Helios

RT: 05:00 Eric Stewart

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

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

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

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.
Applied Pressure

Applied Pressure

RT: 06:26 Kelly Sears

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

Missing In-Between the Physical Proper

RT: 06:00 Olivia Ciummo

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

Hijacked

RT: 15:00 Shambhavi Kaul

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