By Jasmin Risk

Issue 001, Volume One | Summer 2015


A three-part digital drapery study, Jasmin’s review of the word felt—as in haptic and emotive, tactile and affective—echoes triptych tradition. With what seem to be details of hair, oil paintings, aerial patterns of the earth, flowing lava, heat currents, intestines, “Warp/Weft/Wept” studies existence as a riddle of repetitions in technology and nature. It is a textile dependent on the survival of your attention span. In overlaying the patterns, she argues their parallels, punctuated by fast cuts and sound:  glitches in technology, glitches in the body, glitches in life. Crying is like a human’s glitch, when it’s too much. There are glimpses of the maker and the maker’s voice, suspending the mirage of her ego. Her arm here, her voice there, “Shoulda brought a fan…” Slow reflections reminiscent of Hollis Frampton’s Lemon (1969), this short film hospitalizes you, lays you up to stare, suffocated by the intimacy of its squared frame.
