The weekly CAA Conversations Podcast continues the vibrant discussions initiated at our Annual Conference. Listen in each week as educators explore arts and pedagogy, tackling everything from the day-to-day grind to the big, universal questions of the field.
This week, Andrew Demirjian and Claudia Hart discuss emerging media, micro to macro.
Drawing from conceptual art, experimental music and computer science, Andrew Demirjian scrapes and remixes Internet culture to create dense rhythmic collages of sound and language. He teaches theory and production courses in emerging media in the Film and Media Department and the Integrated Media Arts MFA program at Hunter College, he is currently a Fellow at the MIT Open Documentary Lab.
Claudia Hart has been active as an artist, curator and critic since 1988. Her art consists of virtual simulations of all kinds: 3d imagery integrated into photography, multi-channel animation installations, performances, and sculptures using advanced production techniques such as Rapid Prototyping, CNC routing and augmented-reality custom apps. Her works deals with issues of representation, the role of the computer in shifting contemporary values about identity and the real, and ideas about what is usually called the “natural.” Her project is to feminize the masculinist culture of technology by interjecting emotional subjectivity into the overly-determined Cartesian world of digital design.
