A keeper’s log, a score for light, a script for sound. A reconstruction, a slow reclamation. To begin where there is light.

About Video Reveries
Part of the programme Constellating Histories: Encountering Asian American Diasporas Onscreen, this installation features contributions by artists of Asian descent in video art, experimental film, and performance art. Many of these works inspired the featured filmmakers, or worked in opposition to the normalising forces of the capital put into feature-length works.
Each of the videos in this series inhabit a unique oneiric space, be it a hypnotic audiovisual feline mediation, sonic experiments, dancing statues in a public park, or archival articulations.
The complete line-up of video works can be viewed at the foyer of the Oldham Theatre. Three of the works will be available online via AFA’s website and vimeo page.
