Rebecca Ora‘s essay Finley+Muse: All That Has Existed, Will Exist, Has Never Existed, And Will Never Exist is now available for download.  


The book, designed by Ellen Gould of Soft Return, was published on the occasion of our January 15th, 2016 screening at the San Francisco Cinematheque: “Calculating Odds and the Possibilities of Miracles: Films by Kevin T. Allen, Jeanne Finley + John Muse.”

From Ora’s essay:

Haptic space, like the abstract line, is characteristic of nomad art, a concept integral to understanding the slipperiness of Finley+Muse’s work as both process and product. The recombinatory working modes and authors, the refusal to settle upon a single presentation or medium, and, within the films’ diegeses as well as their installation, the engagement with diverging and converging stories and aesthetic elements, all serve as both artistic and political intervention.
