SAIC alum and faculty member Melika Bass (MFA 2007, Film, Video, New Media, and Animation) recently caught up with TimeOut Chicago to discuss her filmmaking practice, influences, and her films Waking Things, Shoals, and Songs from the Shed. She explained to TimeOut about her practice, “I think, for me, it’s almost like there’s this kind of anthropological fiction or fantasy going on with each one of the films—and this is part of breaking the causal chain of narrative too—that it becomes some sort of site where you only have a few relics that remain and you’re like, ‘How do these go together?,’ the sort of narrativizing that I know happens in archaeology.” Read the whole interview with Melika Bass on TimeOut Chicago
