Capsule: BLUbrd

By Ralph Escamillan, Milton Lim, Daria Mikhaylyuk, Joy Quillinan, Linda Chow / FakeKnot

BLUbrd is one of three films created in 2020 as part of the BLUSCRN project. This particular short film uses restraint, obfuscation, and speculation in a meditative examination of the space between the 'natural' world and an imagined one.

Framed as a growing collection of multimedia dance works, BLUSCRN explores the impacts and imprints of flat media and hyper marketing onto the contemporary body. By using both live and post-production softwares to chromakey, filter, and replace environments, objects, and clothing, the project asserts a simultaneous operation of the body as subject and object. BLUSCRN is co-created by Ralph Escamillan (FAKEKNOT) and Milton Lim.
