Acadiana Center For The Art’s Keaton Smith- “The Story of Christopher Jenkins”
Acadiana Center for the Arts presents The Story of Christopher Jenkins, an audio/visual performance that heightens the movie-going experience by constructing a film, live in front of an audience. Follow our artist in residence, Keaton Smith as he combines the immediacy of mixing video with recorded footage to create an original story about the life of a schizophrenic. The work examines the protagonist’s fragmented thought, memory and delusions. In an attempt to cure Christopher Jenkins of his illness, psychiatrists use a machine to extract images from his mind. The elliptical and sprawling scenery of schizophrenia is processed and guided toward clarity in real time.
