2000 WOMEN NAMED STACY - JESS DARNELL - 00:10:04

 

:2000 WOMEN NAMED STACY is an exploration of online fetishism as a larger analogy for the eurocentric gaze in pornography. Other themes include desire for control, self-degradation, and performative roles for a camera. Functioning as a moving digital collage of appropriated materials from Youtube, quicksand fetish websites, and pornography; the Stacy's present themselves to the viewer as both Aggressor and Sacrifice.

AXman - Lars Leonhardt and Brendan Cooney -

00:15:00

 

: Arctic Greenland is a stunning expanse. The few peoples who have managed to survive here over the past few thousand years do not live as they used to. Colonialism has bled them and modernity put them in flimsy houses and clothes. It's a different kind of survival now, of the soul not the body. And to stare too long into the landscape is to feel yourself disappear. How can there be any meaning in a place so devoid of life? And yet here, as anywhere farther south, burns the passion of a man trying to figure out how to reconcile what burns within with the world around him, his existence, direction, and the remains of his family.

00:10:00

 

:Travelling like the echoes of the drill from the fracking site in Lancashire to Pendle Hill- a ‘magical’ hill made up of layers of ancient carboniferous rocks, the work acts as an ecological protest, a mourning song & a proposal for different ways of thinking. It thinks about the rocks as layers of deep time & the affect of the sound of the ecological crisis.

LOOK BACK- Lauren Beck  -

00:16:00

Everything Looks Different in The Desert

 - Siobahn Schuck and Stevie SoutharD  -

00:10:15

 

:a fantasy we were dropped into

but never allowed to participate in

trying to find

       the everyday,

                 infinitely more spectacular by

the beauty of mystery

simulated experiences over things,

continuous movement with no destination.

Pointlessness is the ultimate freedom when,

you can create your own meaning.
