To Touch With Your Eyes

Various directors, USA, China, Japan, 2020-2021, 76 min

May 10 - 16


Forging new paths through virtual and tactile worlds, this dazzling collection of short works offers unexpected insights into old institutions, communion through simulations, and reflections on the pain and joy of visibility.

A tactile, abstract, stop motion out of tufted rugs, inspired by the abstract depth of Len Lye's Free Radicals (1958), and the vibrant textile art of Judit Just Anteló. The film explores material and motion through experimental methods.
