A Re-presentation

San Francisco Art Institute

Through multiple-exposure, juxtaposition, and fracture, the films in this program explore the capacity of the emulsion and the increment of the frame to both collapse linear continuity and construct meaning. The result is a kinetic compression of space that expresses a distinctly cinematic reality.
