The Jim Henson Exhibition

Museum of the Moving Image

Mr. Yellow Sweatshirt

Shot in the Roosevelt Ave/Jackson Heights station, this installation video captures the tide of New Yorkers streaming through an entrance to the subway system in what the filmmakers refer to as a “collective ballet.”

GLOBAL MODE >

Eva Davidova’s participatory installation playfully incorporates both ancient myth and contemporary reality, highlighting the theme of interdependent responsibility in the wake of ecological disaster.

Dissolution

David Levine’s Dissolution is a jewel-box sculpture that conjures the past and future of the moving image. A 20-minute film played on a loop, it draws on the central conceit of iconic 1980s movies and TV shows such as Tron and Max Headroom: human characters who find themselves dematerialized and confined within the interior worlds of electronic devices.
