Pauline Shongov and Aaron Glasser: Wax Notes

Image of a tan and cream melted film strip.

A new body of work by Pauline Shongov (B.F.A. '18) and Aaron Glasser '17, titled wax notes, explores the mortality/immortality of the moving image, materiality/immateriality of the cinematic medium, anachronism/romance of celluloid, and dichotomy/ambiguity of the relationship between silent film and new media. It revisits the Stewart Park Pavilion as the memory of a space that once harbored a prolific silent era film studio.

A special thank you to the Wharton Studios, City of Ithaca, Ithaca Made Movies.
