In line with the festival theme of “time,” the 7th annual Imagine Science Film Festival will co-host a long durational performance piece in collaboration with Marina Abramovic Institute. Inventory: Under Objects Under Oath is a long durational performance by writer Chelsea Hodson. Every day for 656 consecutive days, Hodson has used her blog to catalog, photograph, and write about every individual object she owns. On Sunday, October 19th, from 1pm - 11pm at the Made in NY Media Center, she will read the project in its entirety. The performance and its accompanying live stream will be presented by Marina Abramovic Institute in collaboration with Imagine Science Films. This performance is free and open to the public.
