Screen Based Work by SAIC Shapeshifters

The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N Milwaukee, Chicago, IL

FRAGMENTED POOLS is an evening of film and video projections. Each selection in the program highlights an aspect of the artist’s individual practice. These moving image works explore mind-matter phenomena in philosophical, playful approaches, questioning language and narrative.

Shapeshifters work within an interdisciplinary framework to rearticulate an initial concept through two iterations, rethinking, reimagining and adapting their initial idea to fit the different contexts. With each reconfiguration, the students consider the history and specificity of the medium used in order to question, challenge and blur these boundaries. Together, students program, organize and promote the events. The Shapeshifters graduate seminar was developed by Frédéric Moffet at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is currently being taught by Latham Zearfoss.
