Web-Ellis: Wed 23 Oct, 2pm
Web-Ellis are British/Canadian artist filmmakers working in film, installation, and performance.
They weave together the images, encounters, stories, and sounds of their experiences into work that seeks to address what it is to be human in these strange times, and the boundaries between self and other. Coincidence and fiction play a significant role in their practice. http://www.webb-ellis.org/
