Film Screening: Day Off

Thursday, February 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


The Tufts University Art Galleries present a screening of visiting artist Jillian Mayer’s film “Day Off” (2016). “Day Off” features a series of protagonists playing what the viewer assumes to be an immersive virtual reality video game. The disconnect between the actions of the film’s protagonists and the real-world environments inhabited by their bodies highlights the contemporary human condition — that is, screen interfaces offer us avenues of escape from reality but also alienate us from the physical world and our bodies.

Jillian Mayer is an artist and filmmaker living in South Florida. Her work explores how technology affects our identities, lives and experiences. Through videos, online experiences, photography, telephone numbers, performance, sculpture, painting and installation, her projects investigate the tension between physical and digital iterations of identity and existence.
