GONE, GONE BEYOND – New immersive 360 Movie by People Like Us

A new 360 degree immersive film “GONE, GONE BEYOND” by People Like Us will World Premiere in San Francisco 11-14 October 2017 at Gray Area Foundation for the Arts.  The film will screen daily from the 11-14th inclusive.  We have been making this movie for Recombinant Media Labs own Cinechamber for quite some time now – it is a 47-minute stand alone piece that you watch and listen to from the inside.  It is a work in progress, and this is Stage 1.  Stage 2 will premiere in 2018.

“Hey, hey, have you ever tried… reaching out to the other side?”
Gone, Gone Beyond is a 47-minute immersive a/v spatial cinema work by People Like Us, which breaks the rectangle, smashing the thin screen into tiny fragments, looking beyond the frame, climbing through to see what’s behind.  Gone, Gone Beyond uses appropriated edited collage sewn together in a giant patchwork. Pull on a thread and watch whole new narratives expand and unravel all at once on a 360 palette.

Under the name “People Like Us,” artist Vicki Bennett has been making work available via CD, DVD and vinyl releases, radio broadcasts, concert appearances, gallery exhibits and online streaming and distribution for 25 years. She sees collage and appropriation as folk art sourced from the palette of contemporary media and technology, with all of the sharing and cross-referencing incumbent to a populist form. Embedded in her work is the premise that all is interconnected and that claiming ownership of an “original” or isolated concept is both preposterous and redundant.
