The Web of Cokaygne; Candle and Bell
Curated by Dain Oh

THE WEB OF COKAYGNE; CANDLE AND BELL is a screening of various web-based moving images curated by Dain Oh. This program investigates the production, distribution and cultural stigma that is held uniquely by different web-based medium including open source data bases, cliparts and animated GIFs. By placing them in relation to the history of the moving image as a new form of expression, they are brought to the table as their own distinctive language tools as well as borrowing some from previous mediums of revolution such as photo, film, video etc.

Beginner’s Luck
Curated by KEVIN RONN

They say knowledge is power, but they also say power corrupts. This show will consist of young artists spreading their wings for the first time in film, animation, and other things that at the time were alien to them. These films are not the most polished from the artists’ career, but they show the uncorrupted vision they once had.

Including work by Vicky Yen, Emily Wang, Marko Jevtic, & Petrina Chiu.
