Sara Magenheimer: Slow Zoom Long Pause

2011–16, USA, ca. 60 min.

Show Times

  • Thu, Oct 20th 6:00pm

In her arresting videos, Sara Magenheimer mixes humor and playfulness with a sophisticated inquiry into language and meaning-making. Using visual puns, graphics, and text-to-voice computer programs, her work explores the slippery dimensions of communication. In SEVEN SIGNS THAT MEAN SILENCE (2013), two disembodied computer voices describe in-between places where meaning hides. In SLOW ZOOM LONG PAUSE (2015), characters meditate on the many ways language fails. Multiple formats.

Presented in collaboration with Video Data Bank as part of the organization’s 40th Anniversary Year.

OCTOBER 20: Sara Magenheimer will be present for audience discussion.
