Linda Ryan was the IEA Electronic Media and Film resident for June 3-7, 2019. Linda initially started the week working on editing recorded performance content. After experiencing the Expanded Media exhibition galleries Linda made new works for multichannel video. She made a three-channel sync edit of “Triple A” featuring footage shot in Arizona and a two channel edit which included recordings made at the village of Alfred Bandstand. It was great to work with Linda and her robust performance practice and to facilitate expanded approaches to the media-art branch of her practice. One new piece featured Linda performing a dance for camera in the Expanded Media Immersive Gallery. She performed with her three channel “Triple A” piece projected on the walls behind her. The recordings were shot with the new Canon XF705 video camera. The footage was very exciting in terms of the content and image quality. Linda Also recorded practice sessions in the Miller Performing Arts Center thanks to the generous support of Performing Arts, Dance Professor, D. Chase Angier.
