LOST FUTURES

There's no time here, not any more. Sound & vision, flickers in the dark. Films for unknown futures.

1 - BY HYPER MEDIA, FOR HYPER MEDIA

9th September 2017, The Castle Cinema, Hackney. Presented with Open City Documentary Festival

“As you look at the screen, it is possible to believe you are gazing into eternity. You see the things that were inside you. This is the womb, the original site of the imagination. You do not move your eyes from the screen, you have become invisible.”

A series of recent artists’ moving image works exploring the internet, digital technologies, virtual realities and other forms of networked existence. Together these short films open a window into outer realms of the digital present, ruminate on our connected past, or speculate towards unknown futures.

“As a major storm strikes Texas in September 1900,
a new and mysterious televisual device is built and tested…”

A series of 3D films from Toronto based critic, educator and filmmaker Blake Williams that build upon his research into the history of the use of stereoscopic technologies in the avant-garde; satisfying, sensorial experiments that push the possibilities of the image into strange and alluring new directions.
