BIO
Cynthia Beth Rubin began experimenting with digital media in the early 1980's, and the subsequent transition from painting to the electronic arts provided the means and the impetus for a shift in the subject matter in her work. Although trained as a painter in the era of abstraction, her work now incorporates strong historical and personal references. The recipient of the first individual artist's grant in New Media from the Connecticut Commission of the Arts, Rubin has also received numerous other awards, including grants from the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, the New England Foundation on the Arts, and various artist residencies. Rubin's work has been featured in exhibitions across North America and around the world.

Recent exhibitions include the New York Digital Salon, Pixxelpoint in Slovenia, ARCADE III (and II, which opened in England and traveled to Siberia and Belarussia), SIGGRAPH 2001, (and 1999,1995) and the subsequent touring exhibitions, and ISEA 2000 in Paris. She has also exhibited in recent years in Brazil, Australia, the Netherlands, and Canada.

Rubin's work has been written about in numerous publications. Most recently, INA (Paris) published a text on the Web site Memoirs in an edition of dossiers de l'audiovisuel on "arts en r

Layers of Meaning: Artist Talk in Prague


Apologies for cross-postings. Please forward to any one who may in Prague on March 17, or who may be interested in "Layered Histories".

Thanks,
Cynthia

-------------------------------------------

The Academy of Fine Arts in Prague &The Jewish Museum in Prague are pleased to invite you to a public presentation

LAYERS OF MEANING:
REFLECTING A PERSONAL VISION IN DIGITAL IMAGINING

by an American artist: CYNTHIA BETH RUBIN

 
Cynthia Rubin will discuss the evolution of her creative work in the field of digital media with a special focus on her project 'Layered Histories' (2004, with Robert J. Gluck) which is currently on view at the Jewish Museum in Prague - Robert Guttmann Gallery (U Stare ?koly 3, Prague 1, Czech Republic) as part of the ongoing series “Jewish Presence in Contemporary Visual Arts.” She will showing examples of her images, including excerpts from her projects for the web, videos, and virtual reality.

 More information about Cynthia Rubin: http://www.cbrubin.net

The lecture will be held at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts, U Akademie 4, Prague 7

on Thursday, March 17, 2005 at 5 p.m.

The lecture will be in English. 

Ms. Rubin is coming to Prague in connection with the presentation of the project Layered Histories: The Wandering ‘Bible of Marseilles’, which will be on view at the Jewish Museum in Prague - Robert Guttmann Gallery (U Stare ?koly 3, 110 00 Prague 1) from February 24 till March 27, 2005.

Layered Histories: The Wandering ‘Bible of Marseilles’, is an immersive digital environment combining image and sound. Resulting from Rubin’s recent collaboration with the American composer Robert J. Gluck, the project features a story of a 13th century Hebrew manuscript and its mostly imaginary wanderings throughout the old continent. The fluid video presents the manuscript as a beautiful work of art reflecting the convergence of cultures in medieval Spain, and as a narrative text of layered meanings.

Creative Vector Art in Adobe Illustrator
COM-2842 | Elaine Froehlich
Anchor points, direction lines, segments — does drawing in Illustrator defy spontaneity? Paths can be reshaped, curves and lines can be precisely refined. Once you understand the rules that govern vector art and master a few simple shortcuts, you can draw quickly and, with a little practice, intuitively. Participants in this workshop learn how to draw straight and curved lines using the pen tool, and learn refinement techniques that make drawing in Illustrator fast and fluid and at your control. So join us to learn how to tame the dreaded pen tool and put Illustrator to work for you. Materials for drawing practice will be provided, or students may bring their own scans or sketches.

Photographs, slides, prints, paintings, drawings, real objects and more can be composed, enhanced and transformed with the powerful features offered by Adobe Photoshop. Using your imagination and Photoshop’s capability to create transparencies, patterns, textures and distortions, ordinary photographs can become attention-getting imagery for the web and other visual media. Experiment with tools, such as digital tablets, and other features that can create a range of effects, from seamlessly blending your pictures into a collage to simplifying them for clean icons and graphics. Full-color, duotone and monochromatic images are printed on our archival printer. Whatever your level of expertise, this course helps you make Photoshop work for you.

The ABCs: Absolutely Basic Computer Skills
COMC-2597 | Joanna Roux  
Start at the very beginning in this introductory-level course designed for those who want to feel more comfortable around computers. First we review the features of Macintosh and PC operating systems and define what is meant by software and hardware. Next, we start up the “desktop,” and explore how to create and retrieve information by creating folders, naming files and opening documents. Basic tools and keyboard shortcuts are demonstrated to highlight the distinction between such operations as “cut and paste” and “copy and paste,” as well as “save” and “save as.” Finally, we explore effective ways to work with documents, learning to set preferences that work best to meet our goals.

Final Cut Pro II
COM-2542-02 | Ralph D. Fasano
While one can quickly learn the fundamentals of editing with Final Cut Pro, that is only the start. Once the edits look good and the sound is mixed, the next step is to apply special effects to make the video project stand out. Participants in this course use Final Cut Pro to create a wide array of effects, such as transitions, wipes, dip-to-colors, split screens, superimpositions, 3-D moves, and color adjustments. Students learn how to alter the playback rate of video using motion effects and freeze frames, and how to animate effect parameters (e.g., creating moving text or making a focused shot blurry). Throughout, students explore techniques for decreasing rendering times, designing custom multilayered effects, creating reusable effect templates, and incorporating Photoshop graphics into video. Note: Video footage is provided for class exercises.
