NYC in July

Post by daverj » Tue Jun 03, 2014 12:15 pm

If any of you are planning to be in the New York City area on July 13th, I'll be part of a round table discussion at the New Museum at 3pm Sunday July 13.

Also planning to be part of the discussion will be Hank Rudolph (Experimental TV Center), LoVid, Kathy High, and Mona Jimenez. Kathy, Mona, and Sherry Miller Hocking from the TV Center have just finished a book called "The Emergence of Video Processing Tools: Television Becoming Unglued". The discussion at the New Museum will be about early video tools, and a progression up to the present day. It's also a sort of a "release party" for the new book. There'll be an after party at a nearby restaurant or bar, and everyone is invited.

Wow that sounds neat! My significant other (with a bit of my help) has done quite a bit of research and publishing about the formation of early television archives. Wish we could make it! A bit too far for us though.

That looks like a great event. However flights from Europe are expensive at that time.

That would be a very long trip for a pretty short event. :party:

I'm in Brooklyn, so I would definitely like to attend. Is there an event page somewhere that I can direct interested friends to?

Just came back. Fun event. Was riding high on waves of anxiety so I didn't have an opportunity to meet Dave face to face. But I'll thank him here for his selfless help and encyclopedic knowledge of so many things. He really is an amazing asset to the community. To those that did go, it would be interesting to continue the discussion here. Especially regarding the use of these tools, the realtime nature of many of these analogue devices, and how that informs or influences our work. I grabbed the books, so I'll have plenty of potty reading to do!

It was a fun event. One wiggler did come up at the end and say "hi".

There were an amazing number of well known video people in the audience, including a couple members of the Videofreex.

I wish I had been there. Was the discussions/presentations recorded? I agree with Matos, it would be great if the event sparks a forum discussion.

The event was recorded by the folks at http://signalculture.org

I don't know what their plans are for it, but assume it will end up on the web at some point.

The discussion was interesting because the speakers were each talking about different sides of the big picture. I was talking from a tool maker's perspective about the environment that spawned the early video tool making movement. Hank Rudolph was talking about the human interaction and experience. LoVid was talking about the more current bending/hacking movements, and tools they make for performance and installation these days. The last speaker was a curator/conservator talking about the choices of preserving the tools vs preserving the experience of using them.

The audience ranged all the way from pioneers from the early days through young people wanting to do it all on an iPad. (who I don't think have ever played with a wall of knobs)
