Eve Sussman is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Her film 89 Seconds at Alcázar stole the show in the 2004 Whitney Biennial; and Rape of the Sabine Women, another film, has been shown internationally with critical acclaim.   For this Tuesday Evenings presentation, the Modern is proud to act as the black-box testing site for the “beta” version of whiteonwhite:algorithmicthriller, the latest work-in-progress by Eve Sussman|Rufus Corporation. The film’s continuously evolving narrative is guided by a custom-made algorithm that edits in real time from a server loaded with thousands of clips, creating a never-ending movie. A “New Wave-futurist-noir,” the story follows the observations and surveillance of a geophysicist code writer obliged to remain in  City-A,  a dystopian sci-fi metropolis where nouveau-riche capitalists preside over the dregs of communism. The film mixes chronology, never repeats the same way twice, and has no start or end time. The duration of the film is created by the viewer.  Enter and exit as you wish. Feel free to read the code screen at the front of the theatre. This presentation will last approximately two hours including a Q&A with Sussman and editor Kevin Messman following the screening.
