“Science Fiction / Double Feature” is a 17-minute video essay and ongoing research exploration of how the narrative trope of time travel in television and film parallels first-generation identity formation in the United States.
The project's current state evolved from a short-form essay (formerly titled "Out of Time / Out of Place") that was published in the Digimyths Reader in 2021 by Kevin Cadena.
The text was then adapted into a performance lecture which was presented at the Queens Museum in 2022 before reaching its current phase as a time-based video collage. The lecture was a part of a panel titled "New Devices of Dissemination" and held in collaboration with Adam Zucker and Hyperlink Press.
Stay tuned as the essay's content and method of delivery with different audiences continues to expand into the future.
