Adrift, immersed, imagined, skeptical, mysterious, or matter of fact, this constellation of fleeting films and videos is a jewel net of diverse approaches to the known and unknown forces that describe our world. Curated and hosted by artist and filmmaker Jeanne Liotta, her work encompasses a constellation of mediums (films, installed projections, works on paper, and photographic works). Co-presented by the Houston Cinema Arts Society.
