Paul Clipson is an experimental film artist based in San Francisco, California. Marielle V. Jakobsons is a sound artist and musician based in Oakland, California. His largely improvised, in-camera-edited super-8mm film work generally involves projected installation and live collaborative performances utilizing sound. A classically-trained pianist and violinist, she collaborates extensively in new music/media, improvisation, and experimental pop. By employing various dissolve techniques, multiple exposures, and macro-imagery, he brings to light subconscious preoccupations and unexpected visual forms in our minds and the world around us. Together with Gregg Kowalsky, her band Date Palms creates a sound of psychedelic minimalism and has released LP’s on both Mexican Summer and Root Strata. His films have screened around the world and throughout the U.S., including at the Cinémathèque Française, the Rotterdam Film Festival and the NYFF Views From The Avant Garde.
