DIGITAL UNDERGROUND

Mediated Bodies shorts program
Friday, August 25, 8pm, Cell

Mediated Bodies explores the human form, how it is affected by its environment, whether physically, culturally, or through technological processes. Breathe delves into the subconscious dreamscape of a woman as she explores her innermost fears of asphyxiation resulting in a transformation by water. Leah Gilliam's Apeshit depicts a different transformation, from human to cinematic animal, and how the fictitious body alters the realities of its human inhabitants. Scar examines a woman's perception of her lover's imperfect body. Domestica Immaculata responds to the prescriptions of mass culture that require the undertaking of Sisyphusean tasks in order to maintain a proper body and avoid catastrophe, while Brett Simon's Ode to My Unborn Supermodel fantasizes about an intimate relationship with the bearer of what society deems the ideal body. Both Spank and Stratum examine the human body through video technology and its power to freeze, distort, and alter the human form and its natural movement. Shawn Durr's Meat Fucker pairs a closeted gay man with his meat-loving roommate, the closet case is openly vegetarian but secretly jerks off in a tub full of hot dogs, while the roommate pours meat sauces all over himself and his girlfriend before fucking. Mediated Bodies will include works by local video makers Brett Simon, Leslie Satterfield, Sarah Lockhart and Bryan Boyce among others.
