Mix and Glitch: Migration Narratives
Sunday, October 20: 1 – 5 PM
Instructor: Karina Cortez
In this collaborative, interactive workshop open to young people ages 15 – 22, we will collectively consider the theme of migration narratives as we journey through the realms of analog video mixing and glitching. Using a 1990s video mixer, live camera feed, custom Tachyons+ gear, and found footage, you’ll create will new works of video art that you can use for all of your creative endeavors.
You’ll learn set-up and basics about signal flow, effects, cameras, feedback, and manipulation of found footage and the glitching of video images.
Workshop participants will create one short video art piece by the end of the session, combining images and spoken word. Participants are encouraged to bring found footage on physical media (DVD/ FLASH DRIVE/ VHS) and bring a flash drive to take home a digital file of your artwork. You’re also welcome to bring personal and found writings/poetry/words on the theme of migration; we will also be doing some writing and sound recording during the workshop.
THIS WORKSHOP IS FREE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AGES 15 – 22 WITH ALL EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS PROVIDED BY EPFC.
