A collection of video art made between 2005 and 2008 by Jesse Malmed. Among the work on this DVD is L’Bandit Art, a transliterative translation of a scene from Jean-Luc Godard’s Bande à part, IN3DIA, a mesmerizing bliss-mash trip through a memo-dromological 3d re-envisioning of a season in India and music videos for Jeffrey Jerusalem and Banjo Performs Keyboard. Jesse’s work reveals a poetic eye towards matters of language, technology, memory, systems of representation and the history/context within which he works. By turns conceptual and heady, DIY and academic, grounded and innovative; finally bi-fi psychedelia for everyone.
