Shapeshifters Cinema presents: tooth

When: Sun., Aug. 10, 7:30-9:30 p.m. 2014

For those looking for an unconventional viewing experience, Shapeshifters Cinema offers an “expanded cinema” night every second Sunday at the Temescal Art Center (511 48th St., Oakland). That means experimental films and video art, often with a live performance element. This month, curators Gilbert Guerrero and Kathleen Quillian are featuring the Oakland-based artist “tooth.” The filmmaker and performance artist, who also runs a free venue for screening experimental films in West Oakland called Black Hole Cinematheque, will be presenting three of his most recent projects. As Quillian described it, the artist will be using multiple projectors to layer images captured on 16mm celluloid film to evoke a metaphysical experience by highlighting the materiality of the medium. “He’s interested in the trance-like qualities you get from sitting in a room with a bunch of people in the dark and watching this flickering image in front of you,” she said.
