Tony Ousler's new film at MoMA


Tony Oursler’s Imponderable (2015–16) offers an alternative depiction of modernism that reveals the intersection of technological advancements and occult phenomena over the last two centuries. Presented in a “5-D” cinematic environment utilizing a contemporary form of Pepper’s ghost—a 19th-century phantasmagoric device—and a range of sensory effects (scents, vibrations, etc.), Imponderable is an immersive feature-length film inspired by Oursler’s own archive of ephemera relating to stage magic, spirit photography, pseudoscience, telekinesis, and other manifestations of the paranormal.

The daily screening schedule for this 90-minute film is:

0:35 a.m.
12:10 p.m.
1:45 p.m.
3:20 p.m.
5:00 p.m. (Fridays only)

There is a five-minute break between screenings, and visitors are welcome to enter or exit the theater at any time.
