Deep Field Cinema

Deep Field Cinema looks into the present and future conditions of image-making and image-discovering. It investigates where media and technology can take us, particularly in the current global situation of remote working, living and surviving, as well as digitally connecting with each other across geo-political and socio-political spectrums.

This collaboration with Interdisciplinary Art Festival Tokyo (IAFT) across three nights will search for the elixir medium that can be as good as the real thing. It demands for the best and most intimate form of moving images and viewing experience, transcending between reality and fiction through screens, sounds and spaces.

The livestream will be available for viewing on INTER-MISSION's YouTube channel here
