Shapeshifters Cinema presents Greta Snider

Greta Snider returns to Shapeshifters to present new work in film and 3D in the program "Seen and Unseen". "A Small Place" (35mm/HD) is a meditation on the experience of solitary confinement. This film originates as a 35mm "scroll" of sorts, and explores the gestural quality of language and script, of silence and of time. She uses the marks of human hands to ask us to connect with those others, unseen and unheard. An as-of-yet-untitled piece (hand processed 3D slides) shows how memories bring some things into sharper focus and occlude others. Sound design created by Kiri Lewallen. "Rendition" (projected video and 3D) is an exploration lamenting the officially sanctioned torture techniques of sensory deprivation and transportation. Our inner landscapes are beautiful and compelling to visit, but most of us are relieved to wake up from dreams and to be oriented by a horizon. Sound design created by Kiri Lewallen. Greta will also be showing some older work from her archives.

Shapeshifters Cinema is an expanded cinema series featuring experimental moving image artists and musicians performing live at the Temescal Art Center.
