TOM at Catharine Clark Gallery
Innovation meets age-old questions in this dark and affecting journey of self-discovery, touching on issues of loneliness, isolation, mental health, and the perseverance of the human spirit.
This soul searching, poetic film combines the hip hop language of b-boying with cutting-edge technologies including animation, photogrammetry, and chroma-key capture. Set in a hinterland between the civilized world and the wilderness, TOM tells the story of one man’s journey to rediscover who he really is.*Please note: the Catharine Clark Gallery is now re-open to the public.
