Tune in to Green – Exhibition Five closing February 28th

The micro-short videos (under 5-minutes) in the Tune in to Green series can be thought of as sketches. They are visual representations of ideas revolving around the anthropocene era, or plantationocene as some prefer to call it after Donna Haraway. One way or another the international artists in each exhibition express a question, mood, philosophy, and/or story about humanity’s need to evolve beyond its centuries-old battle with nature and instead find ways to integrate human society with it. Through video poems, experimental audiovisual pieces, expanded documentaries, and journalism, we are presented with new ways of looking at old problems or ways to appreciate the beauty around us with fresh eyes. Watch the trailer or rent the show at https://vimeo.com/ondemand/tuneintogreen or the Diorama Room home page. Exhibition Five ends on 2/28/2022.
