For their residency at the Whitney, Unravel facilitated a series of hand-painted 16mm film workshops with seven different community groups and schools, and staged three large-scale open access workshop events for families, teens and Whitney members, alongside the Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art 1905-2016 exhibition.

Each frame of the edited film correlates to one square foot of the 18,000-square-foot Neil Bluhm Family Galleries, where Dreamlands was installed. The soundtrack incorporates interviews with participants, layered over ambient sounds from the gallery spaces and optical sound from the film itself. Questions to participants sought to explore individuals’ sense of the past, present and future, at what could be a crucial point in America’s history.

Unravel is: Maria Anastassiou, Chris Paul Daniels, Kelvin Brown and Joanna Byrne.
