OCCULAR EYEPLUGS Third Action :: KNIFE/EYEBALL
Occular Eyeplugs is an ongoing series of films and videos from local to international artists, video makers, and other esoteric time based media presented at various locations throughout the Bay Area. This show brings together almost a dozen short works plus a live A/V performance by Cyborg Eye from Italy.
CYBORG EYE presents “They Know We Are Here,” a found film with an accompanying soundtrack which were found as a pair affixed together in bloody gauze in a back alley dumpster of Rome, Italy.
CYBORG EYE is an amalgamation of visual, aural, psychedelic and perceptual structures of B roll horror, faux fact/fiction cinematic tropes of entropy, chaos, humor, and death.
CYBORG EYE uses abstract narrative, proto-science fiction, offering up a dystopian archetype of symbology, amalgamated bodies, “zombies”, abstract light and sound and the subtle registries of fear in the human brain.
Videos on the program include:
By The Light by Philadelphia’s Moor Mother, described as “Sandra Bland Returning from the dead with a Hatchet.” Strobing cacaphonic images flicker of the artist educating the listener with visceral and powerful words and image. City lights and stars pale in comparsion with the weight held in a single word. https://moormothergoddess.bandcamp.com
Trapped from ZEEK SHECK is a five minute glitched out tour de force with surreal psychedelic rhythms of shifting and amalgamated faces, bodies and unknown beings mutating in space. We are all going to die. We are all going to die. We are all going to die. Trapped steadily builds up to and morbidly repeats the rhythms of the assembly line of consciousness, as faces and bodies shift into bodybags and Rubik’s Cube mind alterations of living and non-living beings. http://www.cannermefe.com
Chiquito Bendito by Las Sucias observes cult and esoteric rituals involving bloody head in a blender style collage, with strobing skull misanthropes, that goes behind the scenes of the artists tale of castrations and justified violence on the patriarchy and cat-calling no brains zombies. https://sucieria.bandcamp.com
Punch A Nazi, Fuck Richard Spencer by Anti Art Collective. Meticulously edited videos of deliberate violence enacted against agents of oppression a la the police and Richard Spencer, edited for hypnotic brainwashing techniques of anti authoritarian agenda cut to WOLF EYES, THREE SIX MAFIA, METALLICA and more.
