Description

In 2016, The Chicago Film Archives invited and commissioned jonCates to create a new work that draws from the materials of the archive. Collaborating with Jeff Kolar, Cates created a new work entitled The Engine’s Near is Unconstructed. In 1984, a computer program called Racter wrote a book called The Policeman's Beard Is Half-Constructed. Cates will screen his new work and discuss the ways in which his project intersects with the book with the similar sounding name.
