Directing Directions

Todays Art, The Hague & What You See Is What You Get

There is another kind of film
that flips the equation and
points our interest in a new direction.

They aren’t just about topics, they look out into the world but also inwards, exploring how we think about what we see.

Thoughts as stories. Consiousness as spectacle. Film as portrayal of the mind.

We live in a present - submerge in audiovisual sensory data that exceeds the grasp of literary conceptions.

If we are submerged
in sounds an images;
Can we somehow use them
to stay afloat?

Thoughts as stories.
Consiousness as spectacle.
Film as portrayal of the mind.

2018 – During Todays Art the genre Essay film was highlighted by WYSIWYG. The intervention Directing Directions occupied the waiting space before and after the movie screenings. Waiting – a rather non-mind-space occuping occupation.

... A fertile moment of absence triggering unconsious ways of thinking ...
