Opening April 5th and extending to the 30th, this will be the third Rabbithole exhibition for this internationally exhibited artist. The short films of Stephen Dirkes best embody the historical term for film, “Photoplay”, as they are composed of thousands of still images to create an animated visual narrative. Working with still photographers, visual artists and designers, Stephen’s work combines and crosses the platforms of multiple art forms. Beginning his creative life as a classical composer, Stephen often simultaneously composes the score as he edits his films. Frame by frame and beat by beat, a film evolves as a tightly synchronized expression of both visual and audio rhythms and structures. The exhibition features several photo prints of Stephen’s long term collaborator, photographer Tal Shpantzer, and a painted story board by artist/ film maker Peter Bill. Also featured are installations of set and prop pieces by Amerinkz, Caroline Pham, Ioana Popescu, Zou Chu, Pamela Liou and Jef Niesen . At 8pm, a 45 minute retrospective of sixteen short films, curated from short films, stop motion animation, fashion films, music video and tests or etudes will be screened. After the screening VJ’s will perform live video remixes of the films to DJ Vandel’s live set.   OBSURE OBJECT FILMS RETROSPECTIVE FILM SCREENING: (Duration: 45 minutes) "Insect Dreams" 4:46 "Dr. Valentyn Machines a Heart" 2:19 "Ayaka Nishi Collections" 5:10 "CODEX DOLOR, 563 Aspects of Suffering, Episodes 34, 371 & 92 Presented in Part" 2:00 "J’adore PORN" 1:45 "the Initiate" 1:23 "Proteus Syndrome" 2:43 "the Object" 5:18 "Bullet Proof" 1:40 "Deeper" 4:00 "Shoot N Spin" 1:17 "Obscure Object Parts 1 and 2" 5:00 "Obscure Object Part 3" 4:44 "Obscure Object Part 4" 2:49 "Motion Etudes: Flight" 8:40 "Stephen Dirkes - Director Reel" 4:00
