Gabin Cortez Chance

Born in Fresno, California in 1976. Graduate of The School of the Museum of Fine Art, Boston. Currently living in Boston. Primarily working in Video over the past 10 years. My Videos are multi-layered constructs, digital artificial panoramas. Using a mixture of Hollywood classics, found footage, and video shot by myself to create what I call Super Narratives of the Hyper-Real. My videos generally have a Philosophical, and Sociological twist influenced by the current world political landscape. I am not objective, I most certainly have an agenda. Like many before me, I have Utopian dreams. Dreams that most people believe to be impossible, and unrealistic. And maybe these people are correct, but they are my dreams nevertheless. My videos are a poor attempt to visualize these dreams for others to appreciate, and possibly learn from. And all though I still have a long ways to go actualize these dreams, with each video, I feel I get a little bit closer to my goals of Simulacrum.
