School of the Art Institute graduate Paul Chan unpacks the violent and sexual themes of Henry Darger’s The Story of the Vivian Girls through a pixelated video inspired by the self-taught artist's work. The 18-minute looping animation brings Darger's characters to life in vivid color, exploring the unsettling nature of the artist's dysfunctional utopia, which incorporates the realities of war and misguided politics.
