Reifying Desire Anthology

Institute History

  • 2014 Sundance Film Festival


Inspired by his mother’s drawings, gaming culture, Dada, surrealism, Fluxus attitudes, and ballroom voguing, the bold and hallucinogenic works of Jacolby Satterwhite burn with originality, desire, and conceptual density. Comprised of live performance, custom-made wallpaper, and six computer-generated videos, Reifying Desire Anthology is like a fantastical hyperlink that transcends the brick and mortar we inhabit to explore electronic and biological realms. Satterwhite evokes a universe where sexuality runs hungry and wild through the psychobioelectric matrix in search of transformation and liberation.
