The Made in NY Media Center by IFP is proud to present "Distorted Dharmas," a dyptich of video works shot by Bob Bellerue at a meditation retreat center in August 2018.  Forgoing the raw simplicity of the video work he has made in the past, for this exhibition Bellerue uses layering and processing techniques to heighten the visual experience.


In "Woven Grass" the original footage is thickened using out of phase layers, preserving the luminosity while amplifying the rhythms and textures of the original material.


"Distorted Clouds" harnesses processing by Thomas Rotenberg, who also designed seamless custom programming for the Media Center's 360-degree panoramic projection space.
