23E Studios in Conjunction with The Museum of Viral Memory and Fringe Exhibitions Presents Disembody is the latest work from 23E Studios.

For this project, 23E Studios assembled a crew of approximately thirty people, from San Francisco to Chicago to Tokyo, to create a feature length film (working title: Disembody) documenting the creation of a single work of contemporary Fine Art. This art work is a theater, the Morgellon, installed in L.A.'s Chinatown gallery district at Fringe Exhibitions. The theater was built to show Disembody.

For this work we founded a movie studio (23E Studios); produced a feature length film; built a theater to show the film; and are sponsoring a one week run of the film (extended due to popular demand to two weeks!). After its limited engagement, the film will be submitted to film festivals and distributors in hopes of getting distribution and a DVD release.

The project is a site-specific installation, involving architects, web designers, graphic designers, contractors, costume designers, theater staff, a perfumer, and a complete video production center.

The show opened on July 12, 2008. And the film premiered on July 19th, 2008.

Disembody was shown daily at 2:30pm, 5:00pm and 7:00pm between July 20th and August 3rd, 2008.

From August 4th to August 11th, 2008, Fringe was open to the public while we documented the de-installion of the theater.

23E Studios is also producing or co-producing films by artists involved in the Disembody project, such as editor Skye Thorstenson's film S/Z.

We currently have a number of other films in pre-production, including Vile Dead, Dead Shot, and Jersey Girls.
