the dark of the screen

In this CROSSROADS 2022 centerpiece, alchemical ecstacies of haptic celluloidal surfaces play and flirt teasingly with deep dives into the worlds of circuitry, electronic feedback and system noise. Direct experiences of sensual cinema give way to heavily mediated electronic meditations. Performances of electronic transgression contrast and collide with reflections on the mediation of desire and the nightmarish traumas of the contemporary surveillance state.
