Art discussions ramp up for fall
Today classes started for me. I taught experimental film and reorganized it to introduce formalism on day one. I also showed them the Pixelvision 2000 camera but I didn't let them used it because it is best used outside and it was raining the whole time I had them shooting surrealist-style video. As per tradition, my watch broke. After class I caught the tail end of our faculty retreat. This evening we went to a Neutral Ground show curated by John Hampton. One piece was a lawn with automated light, cutting and water created by Robert Hengeveld. They served cupcakes that look like hamburgers and cookies that look like french fries.
