DINCA Vision Quest 2012

I was very happy to be included in DINCA Vision Quest 2012.  Although the festival happened in August  (I was moving and beyond in my blogging), check out all the great work screened/performed. More about the festival:

VISION QUEST 2012 is three nights of vision quest festivities in Chicago, including a handful of screenings with live audio/video performances. VISION QUEST’s credo is to translate the dinca.org blog experience into an amalgamated IRL (in real life) experience, to further expand the ambit of experimental film & video, new media art, internet art, and to share the subterranean magic of great artists & filmmakers in a physical and social setting. In addition to screening work from around the world, it’s our mission to bolster the Chicago arts community by featuring the works of many Chicago filmmakers & artists in a setting that’s free of charge.

I screened Climbing and I really like the description:

So many mountains to climb — climbing and climbing and climbing — and now we are seeing the colors of change. Grab hold and climb, climb, climb. Now — more than ever — it is time to implement the most profound changes internally. Our inner develops pari passu with our outer. Change or be changed. Participate in the glorious uphill climb of life. What is your mountain to climb? Find the mountain; climb that damn mountain.
