EXPANDING THE DOCUMENTARY: NEW MEDIA AND DIGITAL DOCUMENTARY


Dates:
Fri Oct 14, 2011 09:00 - Fri Oct 14, 2011

Expanding the Documentary: New Media and the Digital Documentary" is a one-day conference with accompanying exhibition organized by the School of Film and Media Studies at Purchase College, State University of New York. Participants incude: Steve Dietz, Andrea Grover, Ryan Griffis, Mark Shepard, Benj Gerdes, Ricardo Miranda Zuñiga, Skip Blumberg, Zabet Patterson, Josh Tonsfeldt, Angel Nevarez & Valerie Tevere, Amir Husak, Millie Chen, Samara Smith and Jeremiah Teipen. 

Artists, in recent years, have pioneered forms of interactive, environmental, and database art that document socio-political, cultural, and natural phenomena that were once the purview of the film and video documentary. While film and video had the ability to collect, record, narrate, and argue about the historical world, expanded documentarians utilize the full palette of digital media in order to engage audiences, participants, and users in the production, archiving, and mapping of the real.  Interactive and multimedia works implicate spectators in the production of information and arguments about the world, foregrounding the public nature of the construction of knowledge.

Panels will be moderated by artists and scholars with active participation and discussion by all attendees.

Location:
New York City, New York

Two “Buttery Smooth” Workshops in The Counter Kitchen in March
 
Brooke Singer
 and Stefani Bardin of the The Counter Kitchen welcome two special guests on March 12 and 19. Join them in the kitchen and learn how to reverse-engineer your favorite food and personal care products. Become a translator, detective, chemist, and cook as you help them decode and remake Johnson & Johnson® Baby Lotion and Breyers® Ice Cream. Mmm, buttery and smooth.
Each workshop costs $10 per person, which includes admission, tastes, take-aways, and recipes. (Please buy tickets online in advance. Limited tickets will be available at the door.)
TCK’s "Devotion to Lotion" Workshop
Rachel Winard, creator and chef of Soapwalla Kitchen, turns Johnson and Johnson® Baby Lotion upside-down and inside-out on March 12, 2-4PM. She will tell us about the 22+ ingredients listed on the bottle and reveal fun facts (like the sources of the "fresh baby bottom" smell and the signature pink color). Then she will lead us through a step-by-step recreation, shedding more than a few ingredients along the way.
TCK’s "I Scream" Workshop 
Mike Lee, founder of the New York underground supper club Studiofeast, will turn our attention to commercially produced ice cream and continue the "Buttery and Smooth" theme on March 19, 12-2PM. Using his culinary skills and scientific prowess with cryogenic fluids, Mike will help us uncover questionable ingredients in Breyers® Ice Cream and then show us a spectrum of possibilities for creating our own ice creams.
