This is Me, Right Here, Mike Hack. This is Me, Right Here 

When: Sept. 22-Oct. 1 2017

When Max C. Lee was ten, he was amazed by a VHS tape his mother got in the mail. It showed a young man going through a carwash without a car. The creator and star was Mike Hack, who has autism and was a patient of Lee's mother, a therapist. When she and Hack reconnected years later, he was an active adult with decades of video work behind him, as is sampled in This is Me, Right Here, Mike Hack. This is Me, Right Here, a Carrack exhibit curated by Lee, his ad hoc archivist. The videos track changes in technology and culture as well as in Hack's life and interests. Sometimes he enters the work as an actor or through a handheld camera's lens, other times as a visionary, spontaneous editor. "Mike's videos are highly tactile collages layered with different sources, media, and timelines," Lee says. "The result is an idiosyncratic (and simultaneous) production/editing process that reveals Mike's deliberate decision making, calls attention to the process itself, and builds a stacked montage of bygone pop-culture that Mike has filtered and digested for us." Hack's artist talk on Sunday is also your last chance to see the show. —Brian Howe
