The week of September 24 – 29, Katherine Liberovskya was the IEA Electronic Media and Film artist in residence. Katherine was particularly interested in the painterly palette of our Sandin IP. She re-scanned monitors and used feedback, fabrics and fans as well as a masterful coaxing of the Sandin and is electric-fields to produce quite beautiful footage! She made a significant number of recordings, including recording on DV tape which she uses in her live performances. Katherine also generously gave an artist presentation, in Holmes Auditorium to Expanded Media students and EIA (Electronic Integrated Arts) graduate students. Katherine’s rich practice in performing video collaboratively with composers, media-installation works as well as her work in long duration, was significant and very beneficial for the EM students. A truly wonderful week.
