The Department of Comparative Literature cordially invites you to attend the screening of “the world’s first feature-length mobile phone art film,” Mark Amerika’s Immobilité, to be followed by a Q&A session with the artist.
Mark Amerika is a critically celebrated artist/writer/media theorist and professor of digital arts at the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Colorado, Boulder. His “avant-pop” digital art (re)mixes popular and mass-media culture with an avant-garde spirit. Immobilité takes this mix to heart by exploring the possibilities offered by the low-tech materiality of an ordinary cell phone to create a highbrow narrative and stunning audio- visual product. Immobilité explores relationships between images, bodies, landscapes and movements to tell a story of intersubjective blurring.
The event, which is cosponsored by the Department of Art History, takes place on October 16 from 4:40-7:40 in LT 1506.
