I sent a proposal for the “New Directions in Anthropology” graduated student conference at The University of Texas at Austin; I’m grateful with them, I’ll have a paper reading on Friday March 27th and I’ll be presenting artwork at Studium Gallery on Saturday 28th. As I understand, panels and exhibition are open to the public, please feel free to join.
The paper talks about audiovisual post-production as a form o re-mediation and method in Visual Anthropology Research. The reading is included in Panel 1 : Visuality / Vibrations (Liberal Arts Building / 1.302B) 10am – 12pm. In the same panel you can hear the readings of Christine Capetola, Julie Kantor, Gwedolyn S. Kirk and Brendan Gaughen. The Discussants for this panel will be Craig Campbell and Randolph Lewis.
And saturday evening I’ll be part of the Creative Showcase @ Studium Gallery (908 E 5th St #106, Austin, TX 78702 a few doors down from Brew & Brew.). The artwork is a loop video-projection named “Mediated Phenomenon“.
I’ll be glad to see and share ideas with all you who can assist to any or both events.
