Video Playlist: Gravitational Pull

Museum of Contemporary Photography, 600 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60605

Video Playlist: Gravitational Pull

Astronauts report experiencing a cognitive shift in awareness upon returning to Earth due to the dramatic change in perspective caused by observing the Earth from space. For the few who have seen this planet from afar, the sense that human life is vulnerable or trivial can be overwhelming. Video Playlist: Gravitational Pull features video works that examine similar mental shifts and alterations to the perception of everyday experience that are brought about by observing, repositioning, and imagining the world from a changed viewpoint. 

Video Playlist is a recurring series of one-night public video screenings programmed in response to MoCP exhibitions.

Featuring work by: Basma Alsharif, Cameron Gibson, David Oresick, Kera Mackenzie, and Ana Vaz.

Still from "What's Wrong", David Oresick, 2013, Courtesy of the artist.
