Jodie Mack: Pattern Language

  • In Person

For well over a decade, Jodie Mack has employed labor-intensive single-frame animation techniques to explore the graphic and poetic possibilities in the materials and patterns of everyday life. A virtuoso of the 16mm film medium, she creates works with a seemingly effortless exuberance that belies the rigorous process behind each lovingly rendered project. On the occasion of her residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts, we welcome Mack to present a program of her own films along with works by animators she admires.
