Karissa Hahn (b.1992) is a visual artist who uses the mechanical devices of cinema to deconstruct former artifacts by physically transforming celluloid – an osmosis of digital manipulation & optical printing. Her work often employs a series of format transfers to birth digitally-native effects on film and homogenized products which have been referred to as ‘spectra ephemera.’ Karissa currently makes performative super 8 films, digital8 videos, installations, and 16mm pieces. Hahn has shown work around the globe in numerous cinemas, festivals, museums, and institutions.
Karissa has contributed to all of our previous conferences. Alas, won’t be able to attend CArtsCon 2018. However, we all look forward to enjoying the film she has submitted, entitled “Please step out of the frame!“
