When the frame slips, someplace between tomorrow and yesterday

When the frame slips, someplace between tomorrow and yesterday
a program curated for the Fabulous Festival of Fringe Film, Durham, ON, Saturday, July 20th.

Using strategies unique to time based media, artists in When the frame slips, someplace between tomorrow and yesterday work in intimate ways to construct reflections of the world on a global scale. As a whole, the program points toward the complexity of our given moment, focusing on the links between the environment, the land, colonialism, war, extraction and oppression. By turning to their cameras, and using both formal and conceptual constraints, artists in the program ask us to look closer to how we engage with the land and with one another, and to consider how it is that we might look at these relationships again and anew. Each of the works in When the frame slips, someplace between tomorrow and yesterday utilize strategies unique to time based media and through structural, material and narrative means help us to imagine the future differently:

Inside a cracked foundation

The pixels blur.

In the garden

Past the full blooms.

In the sea

Time stutters and repeats.

In the backyard

A camera shakes the leaves on a tree.

Rewind.

Fast-forward again.

In a field

A fire burns.

In the desert

The sun shimmers in a barrel of water.

In the street

A red flash

When the revolution comes.

When the frame slips, someplace between tomorrow and yesterday includes works by: Parastoo Anoushahpour, Faraz Anoushahpour, & Ryan Ferko, Dan Browne, Terra Long, Lydia Moyer, Metrah Pashaee, and belit sağ.
