To experience the work of avant garde filmmaker David Gatten is to get caught in a web of conflicting emotions and affects; equally jarring, haunting, lyrical, and lush, Gatten’s filmic worlds are as challenging as they are easy to get lost inside. The Extravagant Shadows—his first digital work—is no exception. Prominently constructed of digitally manipulated written texts in collision with swaths of light and color, the piece defies easily held notions of time, space, authorship, and spectatorship. Director David Gatten is scheduled to be present.
