Artists’ Film International 2018 – Jibade-Khalil Huffman

November 16, 2018

Jibade-Khalil Huffman’s First Person Shooter is a complex visual collage that layers stock digital animation, video shot by the artist, bold text, and multichannel audio. The piece weaves together themes of anxiety, race, violence, overstimulation and boredom from a fractured palette of source material. Overlaid onto the imagery, a libretto-like text inflects the video’s barrage of stimuli, applying lyricism to episodes that intentionally frustrate conventional narrative expectations.
