Save Event: Adam Shecter. Stories from Satellites

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


For the past two years, Adam Shecter has been working on Satellites, an animated fusion of oceanic science fiction and kitchen-sink narratives.


Structurally informed by The Canterbury Tales, Satellites introduces a variety of travelers who share their tales and motivations as they journey across an ocean. During this time, Adam Shecter has presented a variety of studies and sketches for "Satellites." These works contain the DNA of the larger work in progress.

For his show at helper, Shecter presents Stories from Satellites, introducing two new storylines (both in the form of single-channel videos): In one, a sculptor tells the story behind one of his recent works, in the other, an artificial intelligence explains how its avatar - which takes the form of a dog - is becoming a separate consciousness.

In addition to these videos, helper will be wallpapered in movie posters for Satellites. These posters will be available as a takeaway.
