BIO
The EXPERIMENTAL TELEVISION CENTER was founded in 1971, an outgrowth of a media access program established by Ralph Hocking at Binghamton University in 1969. Today, the Center continues to provide informational services to the media arts community. For 40 years ETC offered an international residency Program, grants to individuals and media organizations, and sponsorship assistance for independent media and film artists.

In 2011 ETC elected to refocus our activities. We are now able to continue work in the area of preservation. We will be spending more time on developing support for the new preservation activities with our partner organizations at Migrating Media, among them Hallwalls, Squeaky Wheel and The Standby Program among others. We collaborate with other organizations in the media preservation field to offer conferences and symposia, and to develop informational resources.

In 2010 ETC completed Experimental Television Center: 1969 – 2009 (5 DVD set with catalog), is an anthology of video art works created through the Residency Program since its inception in 1969 and includes the works of about 100 media artists. The collection was featured in 2011 at Anthology Film Archives. It was named top 100 DVDs for 2010 by LUX, the influential arts organization in London, UK. In 2011 the collection was named by LUX as one of 50 essential moving-image artists DVDs in publication. The collection is available through the well-known distributor of contemporary art Electronic Arts Intermix.

The complete library of artists’ works at ETC is being archived at the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media. Under the sponsorship of the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections at the Carl Kroch Library at Cornell University, the archive is curated by Dr. Tim Murray, Director of Graduate Studies in Comparative Literature and Director for the Society for the Humanities at Cornell. The mission is to digitize the collection and provide multiple levels of access to the works and study materials for people internationally.

With the assistance of Blackhammer Productions, we have redesigned the ETC website, so if you haven’t visited in awhile, please take a look. The Video History Project site is now more dynamic and content-rich. Begun in 1994 the Video History Project provides information about the formative development of media art and community television. The Video History site functions as a both a dynamic and interactive on-going research collection and dissemination vehicle for media professionals, educators, and media programmers as well as the general public.

OPPORTUNITY

Experimental Television Center Residency Program


Deadline:
Wed Jul 15, 2009 00:00

Location:
United States of America

The Experimental Television Center announces the next deadline for the Artists in Residency Program, July 15, 2009, for residencies between September 2009 and January 2010.

The Residency supports contemporary electronic media art projects. The studio workshop environment offers access to an image processing system, intensive individualized instruction and time for exploration and personal creative growth. Artists have an opportunity to study the processes and techniques of analog and digital imaging and to then use the system independently in the creation of new works. Participating artists have complete aesthetic and technical control over all aspects of the making process.

The image processing system is a hybrid tool set which facilitates interactive relationships between older historically important analog instruments such as colorizers and keyers, and new digital technologies using a G5, several G4s, a customized Doepfer A-100 system with sonic and control modules, software including Max/MSP, Jitter and Pluggo, as well as DVD authoring and editing software, DVD Studio Pro and Flash. Recording is mini-DV/DV and DVD. This rich electronic environment encourages artists to explore boundaries and intersections within narrative, documentary and social issue traditions as well as more experimental forms.

A complete list is available by email and on the web in the News section.

The postmark deadline is July 15th. You are encouraged to email the written materials.

To apply please send the following:
1. A brief project description
2. A current bio or resume
3. A prioritized set of dates between September 1, 2009 and January 31, 2010.
4. A sample of completed work with SASE if you wish it returned.

For more information please contact us.

The Center's programs are supported by the Electronic Media and Film Program at the New York State Council on the Arts, Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and Technology, the Media Arts Program of the National Endowment for the Arts, mediaThe foundation, NYS Challenge Grant Program, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Media Action Grant Program of Media Alliance, and by corporate support from Dave Jones Design and Black Hammer Productions and by the contributions of many individual artists.
