Monday, June 9, 2014

3:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Warch Campus Center Cinema

New media projects by 14 ART 340/540 Digital Processes students recovering from an encounter with Nicolas Bourriaud's Relational Aesthetics, "a set of artistic practices which take as their theoretical and practical point of departure the whole of human relations and their social context, rather than an independent and private space."

Christopher Moore- LUSTER media is an online mixed-media platform meant to showcase the diverse art forms that LU students create. 

Charlie Mann- Urban Street Art Independent Study documented through video and slides.

Rachel Wilke- The Love(less) Workshop is a video documentation of an event where students met in a contrived setting, individually wrote one break-up letter and one love letter, and were subsequently interviewed. The goal of this project was to break social barriers by encouraging vulnerability and openness in a social setting. 

Jade Peterson- The Ephemeral Tattoo was an event (in an attempt at understanding relational aesthetics) with a resulting experimental film that documented the experience of the human body as a canvas.  

 Erin Davis- igne natura renovatur integra is a video that juxtaposes scenes of burning paper cranes with scenes of the brutality of nature to mimic the ongoing cycle of violence and rebirth. 

Xian Qu- Voyager No.3 is a video piece that pays tribute to the Voyager 1 NASA spacecraft that just entered the interstellar space.  The original video was taken at an illumination event that titled "the Universe" and then adapted and edited with other audio pieces.

Kate Siakpere- LU’s Top Model is a mockumentary send-up of the popular reality television show, “America’s Next Top Model”. In this mini episode, five Lawrentians compete to win the title of LU’s Top Model. 

Ariel Garcia- Barb Talks is a mockumentary-type introduction to the wonderful Pastor Jackie who unfortunately is raptured before we get a chance to meet her.  All in drag, of course.

Amber LatimerHouse Party is a music video that captures the talent of two musicians and combines both artists’ unique styles in order to portray a twist on the typical 'house party'.  

Laura Udelson-  If Venus had a Penis is a contemporary interpretation of religious icons and the portrayal of women in the Western Art History tradition. The suite of images treat media, the artificially produced, and stimulation overload as devotion-worthy.

Alexander Babbitt- Water Whole is a digital video with accompanying soundscape that is inspired by predictions of global water shortage. 

Shea Love- Where I'm From is a mini audio and physical chapbook exploring stories of home. It is an open-line for intimacy which uncovers bits about the artist's identities and experiences that shape her perspective and the way one fits within a community.

Brosie- Mapping Anticipated Carpal Tunnel is a portfolio of digital images that document the patterns and paths that people's fingers leave on their smart phone screens.

SarahJane Rennick- The Gr8 Raccoon Queen will Reign in my Heart 5ever is a digital video about sitting in a 24-hour IHOP in Chicago and thinking about your future.

Emma Moss- Convection Conception is a performance art event about life and bread.
