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!
