Collaboratory Event: Karissa Hahn: “A Brighter Darkness”
October 9 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Our Media Studies Research Collaboratory is hosting Karissa Hahn for a special talk on “‘A Brighter Darkness’: Data, Pixels, and Celluloid.” In this artist talk, LA-based film and video artist Karissa Hahn will discuss her production of “inkjet films,” a form and practice through which she conceptualizes questions about information, data, and the materiality of images. By re-printing digital pixels onto celluloid film, she raises questions about media circulation and ownership, passive consumption vs. active production, and information overload in the form of spectacle, ultimately argu-ing that we are part of a “technographic class,” piling up data for the future. Hahn will outline how these themes manifest through her creative work, show clips, and discuss her process and technique.
Karissa Hahn and Andrew Kim will also present a co-curated program of recent work as part of Experimental Tuesdays at the Union Cinema on October 8 at 7:00 p.m.
Co-hosted by the Moving Image Society.
