a song for the

 

a song for the was produced for Aryan Kaganof’s Johannesburg program at the 35th International Film Festival, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The piece is in slam poetry style, and was inspired by conversations with my father, Marshall Blonsky and Edmundo Desnoes. It uses said text, and found footage (Clash of the Titans) with digital effects and generative processes, to explore patriarchy, relationships and the art of listening.

a song for the was the predecessor to an ongoing series of generative works, where I use simple formulas to edit and compress popular movies, revealing secret biases, hidden meanings and complex relationships just below the surface.
