A series of films by Heather M. O’Brien, an assistant professor in cinema in Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s School of Media Arts, will be part of a showcase later this month.
The event, dyad gaze, An evening of films by Heather M. O’Brien, aims to offer a nuanced dialogue on issues relating to gender, spirituality, grief, exile and belonging. The event is from 6-8 p.m. March 19 at ArtSpace 304, 304 W. Walnut St., Carbondale, and is free and open to the public.
The evening will feature four of O’Brien’s works:
- “Our machines are made of pure sunlight.”
- “dyad gaze.”
- “let everything happen to you in beauty and terror.”
- “with a face of golden pleasure, elegantly destroy,” a collaboration with artist Jonathan Takahashi.
There will be a Q&A with the filmmakers after the screenings, with Sarah Lewison, an associate professor in the School of Media Arts, serving as moderator. Copies of O’Brien’s latest book, “like the delayed rays of a star,” published in 2021, will also be available. Seating is limited so RSVP is encouraged.
