There Is Something Here looks at the components of filmmaking through the lens of the artist’s process, and the challenges of mastering artistic craft while wrestling with self doubt, lack of experience and fear of failure. Originally titled: Nothing to See Here, Carlos David TC leaves behind the self-deprecation that many artists experience to instead focus on celebrating the process of growth and exploration.

After a year of lockdowns, quarantines, and unfinished projects There Is Something Here examines the gap between a creative idea and its full realization, reveling in the uncomfortable but generative midpoint of the filmmaking process. From initial sketches, to editing, color grading, sound mixing and everything in between, there is something here and Carlos wants you to see it with him.Carlos David TC’s solo exhibition features installations of unfinished, deconstructed, incomplete, raw, finished and mastered video work, conceived in collaboration as an Artist-in-Residence at Flux Factory during the global COVID-19 pandemic. The works will be presented via text, color waveforms, sound and traditional moving image. Some of the works include: My Quarantine ShoesThe Self* TapesPass The HoursSpencer’s Gift and the premiere of the trailer for his newest short film: Jevi from 9 to 11.Accompanying the exhibition will be a video series There Is Something In The Window, a series of short films on display from 7pm to 10pm in the main window in the Flux Factory building. (No appointment required)
Jevi from 9 to 11 is a fictionalized documentary about a painter who works at a museum during the pandemic and is set to be released in October 2021. The short film is part of a series called Artist* from 9 to 5 which follows immigrant artists from “9 to 5” the traditional American business hours.

Carlos David TC (born Caracas, Venezuela, 1984) is a Queens based artist and experimental filmmaker. His work explores identity in the digital space, coming of age in the era of reality tv, and mobile content creation as a means of communication.
By combining humor, alter egos, self interviews, obsolete technologies and infinite digital storage the artist attempts to blur the line between performance and reality by experimenting with the documentation of the “process behind the work” as a performance of its own. The constant need to articulate an identity through documentation produces different sets of self-portraits that are presented via moving image, screenshots, screen recording, films, memes, music videos, text based work, performance and site-specific installations.
