NOT AN Addict presents An Evening with M. Woods

Not an Addict is an ongoing series of events examining experimental as it pertains to the thematics of the addiction curated by Devon Narine-Singh, filmmaker and artist in recovery. Tonight's evening welcomes filmmaker M.Woods on his US tour to present several works and share his process of how's experience with addiction has shaped him and his work.

M. Woods is a American-Latinx media terrorist working in avant-garde film, video art, photography, collage, sound design, and performance. Woods' work chronicles the spread of the Numb Spiral, the results of a digital sickness that manifests itself in the codification and symbolic negation of being. His work is a fashioned attack against the institutional structures of white supremacy and the alpha male fantasy. The Numb Spiral is the point at which consciousness negates being, and a cruel illusion maintains control of the flailing senses. What begins as apathy, surreptitiously devolves into solipsism and nihilism, until the infected succumbs to the perception of total illusion. The Digital Sickness is the evil at the heart of mediated representation, and in tandem with spectacle and the negation of the simulacra, the Digital Sickness marches onwards towards the eradication of the real and the propagation of its double.
