Caesium Forest is a feature-length video essay by artist Arjuna Neuman that visits five reverential sites of ‘big technology’. The project moves fluidly between nuclear, neoliberal and ecological histories through documenting space shuttles, techno raves, TED talks and a World War II re-enactment inside a nuclear weapons facility. This two-part presentation includes a viewing of the documentary followed by a question and answer session with the artist.
Arjuna Neuman is a filmmaker, writer and artist. He is the co-founder of the research gallery and collective – Concord in Cypress Park, Los Angeles, where he lives, collaborates and works.
