Peter Burr, Pattern Language, 2016


Program 4: if it makes you happy, it can’t be that bad

Saturday, May 20, 2017

4:30 p.m.

Solids melt. Liquids become gas. Molten forms congeal. All becomes data, organized yet ephemeral. The platonic grid and web succumbs to the entropic physical world. Alternately fascinated with and fearful of the fluidity of capital and the eternity of objects, the films in this program flirt — with highly ambivalent (yet unabashed) thrill — with the allure of the plastic, the eternity of youth, the electro-kick of glitch and game, and the eternal/infernal joy of the perfect pop tune.
