Asian Art

The Human Frames cycle presents a series of ten film programs examining the human condition through experimental film and video art. Comprising of both contemporary and archive images from across Asia and Europe, this project is inspired by the ancient theory of humoralism as a framework by which to analyze certain aspects of the human character. It focuses on ten emotional states – happiness, desire, madness, fanaticism, fear, anger, isolation, melancholy, mono no aware, and impermanence – and depicts the timeless and universal panoply of human tempers that lay beyond national, social and cultural affiliations.
