Under The Boardwalk Screening

“Under The Boardwalk,” a single channel, 8-minute looped video installation, will screen at Experiments In Cinema 2017 Festival, Albuquerque, NM this coming April. The piece explores our compulsion to eavesdrop. The tension of “not knowing” is seductive.
Today we eavesdrop in public and on line, scanning social media images and reading posts, bits of information without context, compelling our brains to take note, resolve, imagine, and create meaning. Studies suggest, despite the wealth of knowledge available to us, we are more tunneled than ever. Societal divisions are on the rise in the U.S. and abroad. The boardwalk itself is a metaphor for this schism. Class, race, nationality, and religious affiliations, are not evident from under the boardwalk, and those traveling above are oblivious to the gorgeous light show below, created by light reflecting off the water.
