Trish Stone will present an hour of 4K Short Films, showcasing artwork created at 4K resolution by UCSD faculty, staff, students, and community. The work will be presented on the Calit2 Auditorium’s Sony 4K projector at 4K resolution (approximately 4,000 x 2,000 pixels). In the past few years, 4K projectors have become more common in movie theaters, and Hollywood filmmakers are regularly creating content at this scale using 4K video cameras. However, artists who are interested in experimenting with technology often don’t have access to these tools. Trish Stone selected works that range from algorithmically generated computer animation to experimental cinema. Within these films lies a common thread of discomfort with the current state of society and technology, and a desire to visualize the intangible:
