Travis (Kelly Reichardt, 2004)

Jem Cohen/Kelly Reichardt

New works by acclaimed independent media artists Kelly Reichardt and Jem Cohen are on view throughout November.
Reichardt's Travis debuted at last year's New York Video Festival; it's a haunting, lyrical abstraction scored to an anguished woman's voice expressing anxiety and anger over a loved one being in harm's way. (2004; 11 mins.)

Cohen's latest begins with a suite of documentary images of train riders lost in sleep and dream, then transports viewers to a considerably more ominous urban site. Both artists worked on their pieces during residencies in the Wexner Center's Art & Technology studio.
