Channel Silver Eye

Clown Mask Replica

This third program in the Channel Silver Eye microcinema series features a selection of contemporary videos that explore themes of representation and artifice in the mediated experience. These works have a particular eye and ear tuned toward the inherent tensions that arise through attempts to capture reality, reveal the behind-the-scenes chicanery of “live television,” and navigate the vast media landscape as it converges with memory in the creation of a fictional film. The program includes Nathan Truesdell’s Balloonfest, Benjamin and Stefan Ramirez Perez’s CONFLUENCE, and Indefinite Pitch by James N. Kienitz Wilkins.

This event is curated by Ross Nugent, a filmmaker and the Assistant Professor of Communication of Thiel College, who will introduce the program and lead a post-screening discussion.
