SHOCKWAVES at Transformer Station


Our new year starts with an explosive and immersive film premiere of SHOCKWAVES, an astonishing 25,000 public domain film samples, rotoscoped and live action film clips, and dance created by media artist Kasumi.

The darkly comic SHOCKWAVES is about a man whose traumatic memories of childhood send him on a hallucinogenic carnival ride of self-destruction and murder. Through a Möbius strip of alternate realities, shifting times and multiple dimensions, Shockwaves weaves a kaleidoscopic nightmare tapestry of abuse and revenge.

This 80-minute experience will run continuously during gallery hours for two days only: January 31 and February 1. Admission is free.

A reception for the artist will be held at the conclusion of the run on Sunday, February 1 at 5:00 pm.

Transformer Station, 1460 West 29th Street, Cleveland, OH 44113
