Jodie Mack

Jodie Mack is a video artist who works with abstraction of shapes and patterns most frequently.

Her piece Two Hundred Feet was a work I particularly was interested in, and really enjoyed. I found the fast past and the solid shapes versus the more fluid liquidy shapes at the very beginning of the work. There were points where the speed of the pace was a bit busy or too fast pace for my brain, however I understand that those moments had their place inside the work.

Another one of her works was Persian Pickles, which was a video of a repetition of paisley patterns at increasing speeds. This piece was far more disorienting then I think some of her more recent works are.

Unsubscribe #1: Special Offer Inside was another work that primarily involved patterns flashing to create the body of the work.

Mack’s work is often disorienting and has an abstract focus, however all of this felt intentional and because of this I found I could sit through the disorientation and enjoy the work.
