The collection of experimental shorts "Destricted" will be screening September 9 as part of the DigitalArt.LA Expo. 'Destricted' is the first of its kind, exploring the intersection of sex and art in a series of films created by some of the world's most preeminent and provocative artists and directors. Explicit in content they reveal the diverse attitudes by which we represent ourselves sexually.

Escape to Reality:
24 hrs @ 24 fps
Sixty photographers, 24 hours and Joshua Tree National Park. The result: a media event capturing the epic scale and soul of one of Southern California's most imaginative regions. This "visual and literary meditation" combines images taken of Joshua Tree National Park, music and a narrative poem written by Ruth Nolan. Taking inspiration from English photographer Eadweard Muybridge’s important work in motion study, many of the images taken represent sequential movements and the passages of time, rather than isolated still-life compositions. The result is an amazing display of terrestrial video, rendered in a drop-frame style. 24hrs @ 24fps over Joshua Tree is a part of UCR ARTSblock’s Photographic Excursions Series.

Dance Camera West
“Body/Traces” by Lisa Parra and Sophie Kahn
“Body/Traces” is a fascinating media installation that examines the body by reducing it to lines through the interaction of three-dimensional media, movement, sound and the environment. The tranquil piece about perception presents an interesting juxtaposition as it exerts itself within the context of the legendary art walk masses.
