Public Program
Screening: InContact
A film by Ann Oren

In conjunction with the exhibition
Profiled: Surveillance of a Sharing Society
organized by Mary Coyne

Saturday, July 11
4 pm

InContact (2012) examines intimacy in our universal state of voyeurism, evoking an age of lost romance and melodrama. A love triangle unfolds through a fictional online platform called "InContact" – a hybrid of Facebook and reality TV that gives users a constant live video feed from their friends' computers. Filmed entirely through the InContact network, iPhones, and surveillance cameras, InContact explores levels of spectatorship and exhibitionism in our everyday life, when everyone is both a viewer and a performer and the unclear moment when we shift from being involved friends to being performers and audiences. The screening will be followed by a brief Q & A session with Oren.

This event is free and open to the public.

Ann Oren is a film and video artist working in New York. Originally from Tel-Aviv, Oren holds a BFA in Film and an MFA The School of Visual Arts in New York and has attended the Skowhegan program.
