Description

Filmmaker Jon Rafman’s latest single-channel video explores the effects of technology and information overload on the contemporary psyche. Set in a virtual tech-noir urban space part of the expansive, fractured narrative focuses on the continued adventures of Xanax Girl and her search for her companion who has been abducted. The film, which arose from the artist’s daily practice of animating his dreams using hobbyist 3D software, weaves together deep-web imagery with detective story tropes and repressed fantasies to create a nightmarish vision of an internet addict’s unconscious. The film features an original score by Oneohtrix Point Never and James Ferraro.
