What Happens to The Mountain
RT: 12:06 Christin Turner, 2016
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE MOUNTAIN draws upon literary sources, late night radio, and ancient legends to conjure the experience of an afterlife in the sacred landscape of Devil’s Tower. A long-distance driver, a drifter, journeys from his tenuous reality into a vision of the afterlife, called forth by the spirit of the mountain.
The Invisible Ax

He knew that the woods are full of forest demons who graze deer and hares like cattle, that the Chuhaistyr - who rends wood nymphs from limb to limb - roams about, inviting passers-by to join him in dance, and that the sound of the ax lives in the forest. He also knew about the Rusalky who emerge from the rivers on clear days to sing songs, to invent tales and prayers, and about the drowned men who dry their pale bodies on river boulders after sunset.

Self-defense techniques demonstrated and repeated to the creeping pace of Billy Joel's "Just the Way You Are." Self-aware performers remix violence into complementarity, inspiring movement into the promise of a dance. A pink print inspires informed movement, now as it was then.

'Pattern Language' is a term coined by architect Christopher Alexander to quantify the aliveness of certain human ambitions through an index of structural patterns. Some advocates of this design approach claim that ordinary people can use it to successfully solve very large, complex design problems. In this piece, Alexander's design theories are applied towards the construction of a generative video game labyrinth resulting in a rhythmic animation made of rippling, skipping, and strobing arrays of light. The whole environment is infused with a procedural vitality brought forth through cellular automata and crowd simulation algorithms.

PRINCIPLE MERIDIAN is an experimental 16mm short exploring the landscape of Harney and Lake county of Southeastern Oregon. These lands were the backdrop of the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in early 2016. Invisible divisions of State, Federal and Tribal lands are imagined in reconfigured collaged landscapes.

CONTACT viscerally immerses the viewer in the duality between digital and physical worlds - how these worlds come into contact with each other and with us. Produced using an array of out-of-camera techniques, the film plays with its status as a physical object which only becomes a "film" through its original collision with printer ink, found natural objects, light, and chemistry and its subsequent collision with the projector.

Ghostly apparitions are seen walking the banks of the Bayou. Caught in a cyclonic tidal force, these specters are seized by the chemical and physical interaction between the emulsion, the body and the seawater.

A surreal montage of selfdom in a lensed world. We start in transit and end in the boudoir. Tea and light snacks will be served.
