CARTUNE XPREZ presents PDX-PSY-PRI, a special event featuring animated
visions by Adrian Freeman, Shana Moulton, and James Duesing. Follow these
videos through a landscape of shrunken technology as each artist escapes
with distinctly warped visions of a strange new world. Featuring a
sneak-peek of some of Freeman's video work before his debut performance with
MEAN AGE at the TBA festival on September 13th!
Peter Burr, Christopher Doulgeris, and Cassandra C Jones started CARTUNE
XPREZ in 2006 as a way to highlight the energy and spirit of contemporary
artists who utilize highly accessible tools to make sophisticated video
work. For PDX-PSY-PRI, Peter Burr has scooped up a potent dose of artists
that capture a sense of magic and the supernatural in their motion pictures.
"Broken Synapses and Frozen Hallucinations"
A program of Psychedelic and Psychotropic incursions by Marianna Ellenberg,
Tim Reardon and a new selection of videos by Peter Burr of Cartune Exprez.
Silverized teeth, plutonium meltdowns, dripping spirals, quarky tunes and
broken neurons‹this is your brain on drugs and it may never get off! These
videos explore a psychedelia that is underhanded and overused, the mind
altering platittudes of internet surfing and tv injection, the highs of
everyday objects to the lows of cinematic de-ja vou. The fix is free, but
the flashbacks are re-calcitrant.
Marianna Ellenberg is a video artist living and working in Brooklyn, New
York. Her creative practice centers around research into the contemporary
body-psyche, through an aesthetic investigation into the discourse of mental
health culture and advertising semiotics. Through video and sound
installation, texual animation and hyppereal photography, she unveils the
conditioning of the symbolic self and its inevitable breakdown. Ellenberg's
work spans from abstract Super8mm animations, to video installation, sound
work and color photography. Her films and videos have been shown widely, in
such venues as The N.Y. Underground Film Festival (2007), The Collectif
Jeune Cinéma (2003), LA Freewaves (2006), and The Dallas Video Festival
