andreview invited Jeff Guay to the Settlement for a performative lecture
JEFF GUAY This Shit Was Over Before We Got Here is a psycho-hallucinatatory acoustic-film experience made up of images from the American unconscience, coupled with minimalist sounds from somewhere further out than that. Projected on two screens for a unique surround-vision experience and accompanied by a live minimalist score to be played behind the audience — the entire experience is designed for full blown sensory overload.
Sounds and images provided by Jeff Guay, whose short films Don’t Worry, it’s a New Century and Principia have screened at venues such as the Portland International Film Festival, the Northwest Film and Video Festival, San Francisco’s ATA Film and Video Festival and Seattle’s Northwest Film Forum.
