A version of how the following year can unfold, put into motion before the confirmation vote occurs.

This is kind of the crux of my practice – to take bits and bits of things and transform them into something else. I appropriate imagery that contributes to our cultural and social imagination.

about director

Kelly Sears uses experimental animation techniques to create hybrid works that draw on narrative and documentary elements. She transforms an extensive trove of source materials, such as first aid handbooks, chronicles of space exploration, presidential and military newsreels, 35 millimeter photography manuals, aerobic and yoga guides, archival films, high school yearbooks, and disaster survival guidebooks, into new instructional and advisory texts that may lead the viewer astray and disoriented. Through these animations, we see bits of history that are recognizable but unsteady.
