Altered States is an immersive multi-screen show of the latest experimental film and video work curated by the Hastings-based filmmakers Toby Tatum and Mark French. Altered States features moving image by the some of the most fascinating international moving image practitioners working today, much of it unseen in the UK. The fruits of a worldwide search for works that articulate film’s power to initiate heightened states of consciousness, transporting us across the threshold into a mind- expanding visionary state. A selection of cutting edge films that imaginatively reshapes the base materials of the everyday world into something rich and strange.
