we will sleepwalk towards film work by exploring a set of poetic propositions. we’ll enter the session with anne carson's essay: 'every exit is an entrance' and we will continue to explore it by looking at film and footage through which we currently experience politics, bodies, intimacy, rest and agency in the world dissolved in liquid crystal and dopamine anomalies.
