The Forcing

The Forcing FINAL

An insistent collage of images and sound that muddles the quiet detail of flora and fauna with the chaotic noise of mass upheaval, building tension through the offset of sound and image. Boundaries between climate change and the struggle for social justice dissolve, placing them side-by-side on the cosmic continuum. Made in response to the turbulence of contemporary American life and thestrange immediacy of events experienced only through screens, this work asks viewers to ride the waves of the anthropocene, moving between original and existing materials toward an unheroic encounter with the beautiful and the terrifying. Discussion with director Lydia Moyer and short director Andrew Mausert-Mooney
