Early Monthly Segments is pleased to host a screening of the work of local artist Dan Browne. A prolific film and video maker over the last decade, Browne finds himself drawn to the abstract patterns of nature, organizing them visually into immersive films that examine light play and embodied vision.
After a few years diving prolifically into digital image-making—including the much lauded memento mori—tonight’s screening features a return to celluloid for Browne with a brand new compendium of seven short films, entitled The Lost Cycle. The cycle, for Browne, “came about as a result of the process of going through my negatives — I found these otherwise lost moments in my filmography, moments that had meaning, which I had intended to do things with but never got around to doing, and decided to release them as a coming to terms with my karma for the medium.”
