Reading the Unwritten Script
About the Exhibit
SYNEMATIKA: The Site-specific Screenplay is the ongoing translation of a near-death experience as told through autobiographical myth.
Experiential filmmaker Michael Pope takes the traditional film-script format and breaks it from the page and out of the constraints of written language. Combining site-specific installation, video art and live performance Pope seeks to engage the total super sensory spectrum of human expression and intuitive comprehension towards a shared creative consciousness.
