I am very happy to have my two channel short video “Threshold” included in this screening of short experimental video works. The screening is called “With A Voice Like the Lake” and it features 13 artists from the chicago area. The program is a part of the Society for Contemporary Media Studies conference that is happening March 6th-9th 2013. The conference itself is pretty academic, gathering film scholars, educators and industry peeps in one place to listen to talks and panel discussions about contemporary media.
here’s the cover of the conference pamphles (can’t believe how generic-ly it’s designed)
Link to SCMS conference page there is a PDF of the program of lectures there as well.
