Take a walk through 220 Crosby Hall and you'll enter Pluvious, a responsive environment that evokes the childhood sensation of playing in the rain. The installation, generated from a graduate architecture studio in situated technologies, integrates sound, light and motion with sensing technology to investigate questions of spatial contingency and the limits of predictability through an interactive, multisensory experience. It is on view from 5-8 p.m. Dec. 10, 12 and 14.
The selections for Binghamton University's 2018 Student Experimental Film Festival program has been announced and of the 19 films selected for the festival, 6 of them were made by UB Media Study students! The festival takes place Friday, Nov. 16th-17th, 2018.
This programme of works by female filmmakers made in response to Brakhage will be introduced by two presentations. Kalpana Subramanian will talk about her recent films and research — which uses a transcultural and interdisciplinary lens to examine Brakhage’s radical experimentations with light and its relationship with embodiment and breath — while Ara Osterweil, author of the recent study Flesh Cinema: The Corporeal Turn in American Avant-Garde Film, will further discuss the charged and sometimes fraught friendship between Brakhage and Carolee Schneemann.
The Buffalo International Film Festival 2018 is just around the corner – Thursday, October 4 – 8. Just another cultural offering this city has to offer, right? But did you know that the festival ABOUNDS WITH THE WORK OF UB MEDIA STUDY STUDENTS AND ALUMS??
