INDECISIVE MOMENT presents So the Day, a screening in collaboration with Pulp Legend. The videos included fall broadly under two correlated themes that are intertwined throughout the program: Identity and Perception. Gender and cultural identity is explored through the trope of role playing when Hello Kitty goes on a date with Mickey Mouse and when a football player sings a progressively more frenetic and distorted version of “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair.” Other artists use the camera as a tool with which to create a coded language or a systematic way of perceiving the natural world and reconsidering it. An hd video, which has been processed through a custom patch and then regurgitated as an sd video, tells the story of how a sketch in a notebook triggers a search along the Gowanus where an imagined boat is made real; drawing the world as it seemingly draws itself. These artists, each in their own way,  take a meditative stance to image making, employing rhythyms and patterns that distort the mundane. The cummulative effect of the screening acts as a mantra where the relationship between words, images, sounds, and their meaning shifts and transforms.

Artists included: Noura Al-Salem, Sari Carel, Karen Y. Chan, Teresa Christiansen, Tara Cronin, Rebecca (Marks) Leopold, Stefan Petranek, Hyla Skopitz, Sayaka Taninokuchi, Niknaz Tavakolian, James Woodward, Quito Ziegler
