Faiyaz Jafri – Shine – Canada/United States
Shine is a transcendental animated film driven by Deleuze’s Time Cinema, embracing the democratization of the eye. It deals with the loss of an innocence that was maybe never there, reminiscent of endless urban summers, adolescent insecurities, boyhood vulnerability, and the pretension of confidence.
Born in the Netherlands and of Pakistani descent, Faiyaz Jafri (MSc) is an artist, curator, and educator based in New York. His work is a hyperbolized reflection of the tropes of popular media, taking the clichés of society and pushing their aesthetics into the hyper-unreal, resulting in an introspective and amplified remixed visual language.
