The EFIList Movie: Frankenstien Sequence
by Amanda Oldphan Sukenick
3min 2sec, Chicago IL, 2015
"This video is the Frankenstein sequence from the work-in-progress movie, The EFIList by Amanda Sukenick. The EFIList is a movie about the philosophy of Antinatalism, inspired by the Antinatalist community on Youtube, and a branch of Antinatalism created by Youtube philosopher Inmendham called EFILism. While Antinatalism generally is a philosophy which recommends that only humans seek extinction through non-procreation, EFILism is a critique on the suffering of all sentient life, and advocates for complete sentient extinction. Consciousness and DNA are the greatest problems on planet earth. Consciousness and DNA don't produce anything but need for no need. In this sequence, I re-create the Frankenstein myth into a more deliberately Antinatalist story. "

Anastasia Goes to the Beach
by Casey Spectacular
4min 12sec, USA, 2014
""Anastasia Goes to the Beach: Anastasia is interviewed for her one day out of ""the home"". In this Video short by Casey Spectacular we casually explore the inner workings of an isolated character. A bizarre sort of awkward comedy is glazed over this sad little interview. Ana gives us a delusion of happiness smeared in dollar store lipstick and failed family relations. Please Enjoy""

"Proximity Test' was made in the Art Institute of Chicago in 2015 by documenting the newly installed sensors placed around certain works of art in the museum. When triggered, a series of loud beeps warn visitors that they are too close to the art. Only certain works of art are equipped with these sensors however. "

I'll Always Be a Tractor
by Jonathan Leib

"This is the first music video starring Oxie Pines, a drag farmer and rural blonde icon. Oxie's adventures in the world of video explore rural gay male identity and the process of queering the American redneck."

"The nude, most commonly female, is a clear depiction of the body, idealisms, and the male gaze. Venu$ asserts both roles in the exchange between model and artist, director and actor. Much like Boticelli's "Birth of Venus" we witness a snapshot of a happening, an exchange between bodies, voices, and hierarchy. What happens when these voices and bodies are queered or merge? Who addresses who? "

"I made this video in tandem with a music video for my hardcore punk band Mystic Inane. Both of them draw from the same imagery and technical tricks, but Meditation hall is different from the music video in that it's about finding its own pacing and rhythms and it jumps farther into themes of meditation and anxiety."

Rat's Dick Chicken
by Nick Williams
17sec, Chicago IL, 2015
"A TV ad for Popeye's Red Stick Chicken intercut with video footage of a pet owner examining his male rat's genitalia during utterances of "red stick" which is said by the spokeswoman in an affected southern accent, making it sound more like "rat's dick." There's also text to guide the viewer along so that "rat's dick" is all that they can hear, even while the red stick the spokeswoman is holding is clearly visible."

"MagicalGarden talk about illusion and pseudo-virtual realities applicable to the feelings. In the symbolic space of the ideal garden, understood as Utopian space, and place ideally carrier of all the fantastical skids of the reality, the hyper-individuality is duplicated in double ideal – the clone-lover becoming the syndrome of this utopia of the soul mate, treated under a genetic mode.
