Inscribed about artifacts are traces of human activity: gestures, gazes, textures, abrasions. These are the material and figurative qualities which produce historical potentiality. Functioning like spolia, remnant structural fragments used to erect new stone walls, they act as analytical units through which narrative is assembled, eroded and re-constructed.
Hypnotic and visceral, Sonic Cinema is a wild hypersensory experience. The films in this program explore the outer limits of perception, embodiment and cognition using experimental animation techniques, chemical interventions, powerful soundtracks, magnetic pulsations and beyond. Raw intensity and pure energy into the ontology of the moving image.
