Karissa Hahn is an artist and filmmaker based in LA; a graduate from CalArts . She has explored many different visual forms. Her work plays with the idea of the spectacle becoming mundane vs. the mundane becoming a spectacle. She creates works on celluloid that are born in the digital world.
Karissa states: “My work is quite often derived from a text, or it manifests as some reaction to an event – usually concerning desire. All of my work has been created in a hypomanic state of experimentation. I become obsessed with a concept or phrase and then draw out a long narrative that is meticulously researched and planned out. It’s funny though, because these longer films never fully come to fruition. Instead, I extract one scene or moment from each ‘storyboard’ which then acts as this emblematic entity to the unseen/made narrative. So now I have this archive of chaotic and drawn out chronicles that act only as source material for shorter works.”
