Vertical Horizons showcases RISD artists that are expanding the boundaries of the screen. Abstract modes of viewing combined with readily accessible technology open cinema from its prescribed linear understanding, giving rise to new forms of representation.The materialism of the digital image and tactility of light have widened the creative playing field, offering audiences new ways of experiencing a work of art. New ways of making have resulted in unconventional ways of seeing.
