MARC LAFIA, filmmaker - in conversation with - CHARLOTTE COTTON, of ICP
“Seeing and Seeing Again” Presenting the experience of seeing again. Seeing an image and then seeing it - again. I want to ask, really see, what is this seeing again, which raises the question, what is seeing and what is again. What do we see when we are seeing. And how did we take notice of this and not that. words we don’t see at all.
Marc Lafia is an American artist and filmmaker whose work emerges with network culture as it changes the nature of the image and the circulation of cultural objects. An early innovator in the “post-internet,” he turned to it often incisively and humorously in his computational games, prints, films and installations to reexamine art and its history as an ecstatic artifact. He has been exhibited at the Walker Art Center, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Tate Online, the ZKM, the Centre Pompidou, Anthology Film Archives, International Film Festival Rotterdam, He has taught at Stanford University, the San Francisco Art Institute, Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Pratt Institute and Columbia University.
