Film is not dead. In fact, there exists a community of celluloid imagineers that are working within the constructs of a digital society to reclaim and reinvent the medium. Ian Curry is a Chicago-based filmmaker whose work celebrates the sensuality, magic, and history of the physical medium of 16mm film. His work focuses on manipulating film through experimental processes and testing its limits by way of designed apparatuses for presentation. He often uses hand processing, optical printing, contact printing, and in-camera editing to reveal a passing moment’s brilliance or a presented moment’s faltering truth. Utilizing vigor and speed - rushing energies of light and striking rhythmic edits, Curry’s works stretch the concepts of film and performance into a breathtaking experience.
