FLEFF

Blog was written by Kelsey Greene, Documentary Studies and Production, '13, FLEFF intern, Buffalo, New York

I am not usually the kind of student who pulls out their computer during class to go online, but I have been instructed to do so for this blog.  

I am sitting in the third row of seats in room 115 of the Center for Health Sciences building.  Renate Ferro is currently speaking to the audience of mostly students who regularly attend Dr. Zimmerman's class Nonfiction Film Theory at this time.

After an introduction from Dr. Zimmerman, Tim Murray began the discussion with a brief history of video art and new media.  I found out a great deal started right here in Ithaca, NY!  

The Experimental Television Center, which has been an important place for discovery for many respected artists is located in Owego, NY.  It sadly will be closing this year in May, but is most definitely celebrated and will not be forgotten.  

Renete showed us some neat projects she has done or is working on including:

Now, Megan Roberts and Raymond Ghirado are speaking and showing pieces they have worked on.  They began by showing us a project they did with twelve stacked TVs that they synced with music.  

The projects they are showing us were made at the Experimental Television Center.  It is interesting to hear their personal stories about how they made them while they show us the art.  

Some of the projects they showed us were:

It has been really neat to see the artists discuss their projects and share their thoughts with each other and the students in the room.  

I'm looking forward to more FLEFF events and will try to keep you posted!

Thanks Kelsey for writing about my work. You can access the projects by going to my website at www.renateferro.net/. Yes, many artists both regional and international have attended ETC for residencies. The third floor space provided me a very dedicated time to experiment with the mixers using newly digitized super 8 movies that were originally shot in the 1950's, Additionally, I spent three days going through Max msp tutorials. Above all it was an opportunity to experiment with some new ideas and plan some new projects.

ETC has also had a very long history in providing the structure for artist's to receive grants. A few summers ago I served on a granting panel for ETC. It was an awesome experience in that I was able to look at the work of many exciting artists. ETC has served artists in invaluable ways.
