jacob body seer (3 minute excerpt) 2018

Jacob, Body Seer explores the connection between trauma and visionary experience. Situated against the backdrop of America’s own psychogeographical “dark night of the soul,’’ the character of the “Body Seer” invokes the hidden resonances between vulnerability and vision as he assumes his witness body—a subtle skin that exposes rather than insulates—and encounters the mysterious figure of the Bird Catcher.

"Jacob, Body Seer" is a part of the experimental narrative project, "The New Wilderness Gospel," which employs text, sound, video, still images, and live performance to explore the interdependence of environmental and existential wilderness.

In collaboration with Joshua Levi Ian (2018) digital video, color, sound, 8 minutes; presented by San Francisco Cinematheque and the ​San Francisco Museum of Modern Art on June 8, 2018
