"The filmmaker I consider to be the greatest cause for hope to come along lately in the field of experimental cinema” — Phil Coldiron, Cinema Scope

This collection of films investigates the formal principles of abstract cinema while maturing an interest in found materials, evolving modes of production, forms of labor, and the role of decoration in daily life. Prodding at hierarchies of aesthetic value and the tension between high and low, these animations question the role of abstract animation in a post-psychedelic climate. Merch tables meet museum gift stores. The sublime meets Sublime the band. Rippling head shop tie dyes and dollar store gift bags form celebratory spectacles from resurrected dead capital and banal everyday objects. These stroboscopic eulogies – celebrating the spectrum of abstraction from transcendent visual experiences to science kit optical fascinations – force a proscenium collision of the arena rock show, the planetarium light performance, and the cinema.

"If the avant-garde world were to advertise for a “Director of Cinema Advocacy” (job prerequisites include: sense of humour, familiarity with analogue technologies, ability to make direct eye contact with strangers, MFA), it would be hard pressed to find a better candidate than Jodie Mack. … Mack has earned this attention by virtue of her filmmaking, but she’s also a dynamic personality. If Richard Tuohy’s Dot Matrix had the feel of a concert, “Let Your Light Shine” was part rock show, part stand-up routine.” — Darren Hughes, Senses of Cinema
