12-02-2019 12:00:00 12-02-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Puzzling: New Language Acquisition | 7:00 pm A puzzle is something puzzling– it expects deduction and solution, while at the same time describes a condition of open confusion. The six-part series "Puzzling" considers these concurrent modes to explore different registers of knowing, the generative possibilities of uncertainty, and the film form as a choreography of sense and stimuli. How can a puzzle, as a challenge and as a structure, destabilize or shape the world? How are the boundaries of sense and non-sense policed? Human and non-human test subjects, compromised figures of authority, and metaphysical detectives populate the series, alongside inquiries on communication, abstraction, and agency. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=347565 Pioneer Works Pioneer Works
