Dutch artist Melvin Moti takes particular historical moments, anecdotes, or scientific events and explores them in intense detail. His films and installations often reduce his chosen subject matter to the point that their visual and aural attributes become unique from their original state and independent of their original contexts. The screening features a two-part presentation of his 35mm moving image work, and encompasses a discussion and Q&A with the artist.
