Jim Hobbs presents Moribund State[s] – Exhibition

MORIBUND STATE[S] – Video Trailer

Anamorphic 16mm film projection combined with digital animation, light pieces choreographed with computer coding (housed in stripped down industrial looking structures inspired by antiquated parabolic lighting blueprints from his father’s archive), new school/old school polaroid photographs, and sounds whose manipulation is a deconstruction of time and meaning from a “recorded prayer”.  Together, they work on loops but as they have different time spans they endlessly make new pieces/ conversations / connections constantly reinventing the work, with chaos and calm arriving at unbeknownst times.

The work and the implied narrative hint at something: distance, time, relationship to space/place.  These interweaving sensorial systems enable unexpected things to happen.  There is a poetry here – an ethereal sense of the known, the recognized. The governance of the personal finds contact points with something much larger, something more human, something with which we can all relate.  

Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
