Project Descriptions:
Toronto-based artist Alex McLeod presents two short, computer generated films. In SISYPHUS, a rock undulates uncannily along a rocky landscape, suggesting sentience or puppetry by an unseen force. In ALMOST HOME, a metallic structure navigates a grassy lawn. Both films use strange, futuristic forms to play with familiarity and discomfort.
