Chicago Filmmakers - 1326 W. Hollywood Avenue, Chicago | March 31 at 7:00 PM: When we see an image on a screen, we are already viewing through the percepts of a mechanized consciousness. Taking this as a given, as we slip into this other sight, adapting to the palimpsests of technological advancement, we take what machines have to offer as extensions of our sensorial and sensing faculties. This program is composed of transmigrating images and visualizations of cosmic realms - brought descending to the quantum scale. These works critically examine our relations with various forms of cartography, simulation, and virtual spaces, as we navigate new narratives told by artificial consciousness.
