Media and Cultural Studies Toast and Jam Lecture: Mark Tribe

7:00 PM  - 8:30 PM
Wednesday Mar 29, 2017
Neill Hall (formerly Humanities Building) 401

Mark Tribe works across media and forms, including drawing, photography, installation, video and performance. His work deals with social and political issues and his recent video art has explored the relationship between landscape and technology. He founded Rhizome, an organization that supports the creation, presentation, preservation, and critique of media practices that engage technology.

Notable recent works include: The Port Huron Project, a series of reenactments of protest speeches from the New Left movements of the Vietnam era. Each speech took place at the site of the original event, and was delivered by an actor or performance artist to an audience of invited guests and passers-by; and New Nature, a series of long-take moving pictures shot in wilderness preserves across North America. Each picture is 24 hours long, capturing a day and a night in the life of a wild place. Shot in a single take on a stationary 4k digital cinema camera with an ambisonic microphone, these pictures are meant to be exhibited on large 4k screens with immersive sound systems.

This event is for: Alumni, Students, Staff, Faculty, Parents and Families and Public
