Institute History

  • 2007 Sundance Film Festival


R. Luke Dubois develops algorhythmic compression technologies to explore ideas of canon and historical progress in popular culture. In Play, the flickering faces of every Playboy magazine centerfold since 1953 meld into a dynamic collective portrait of idealized feminine beauty as it has changed over the last half century.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
