With this program we take a closer look at how artists, over the last fifty years, have been using a broad range of cinematic techniques to investigate the analog and electronically induced play at the boundaries of perception. Ranging from stroboscopic patterns and psychoacoustic drones to visual chaos and pure silence, all used techniques tickle, hypnotize or physically assault the senses resulting in hallucinating trips, exercises in abstraction, and sublime audiovisual spectacles.

Eisenhower. (more…)
