Please purchase tickets at the box office.

Throw out the rules of traditional filmmaking! Inspired animation architects build hovering fourth-dimensional forms. Morphing imaginations teeter between the psychedelic and psychotic. Spiritual insights beyond the grasp of words coalesce into truly original aesthetic experience. Dizzying but never dull — do you dare touch the exploding mind?

Here's some of what you'll see: The entire world history of 2D art condensed into sixty seconds. The evolution of the species, drawn with glow sticks upon nighttime air. A boggling bestiary of uncanny animalia in the tradition of Svankmajer and the Brothers Quay. A confectionary zoetrope made from spinning chocolate cake. Dancing geometries that transform optical illusions worthy of M.C.Escher into an impossible choreography of color. Contemporary Japanese surrealism, techno-tribal shamanism, multi-media glitch art that pierces the wall between universes... And more!
