What is Mediaworks?

Students in this full time, year long program have explored a wide range of media modes and communication strategies, from 16mm film to public access television, from silent cinema to video art, from documentary to remix. They have gained fluency in critical and creative methodologies including close reading and formal analysis; cultural, historical, and technological studies of commercial and alternative media production; and feminist, critical race, decolonial, and queer perspectives on representation and power. The independent video projects you see tonight, produced in just ten weeks during spring quarter, represent the culmination of their work this year. Although each student made an individual piece, they have collaborated closely and engaged in an intensive peer critique process, and this screening speaks to their collective accomplishment as well.

Mediaworks faculty and students would like to extend our deepest thanks to the Media Services and COM Building staff and the student Media Interns for their knowledgeable and generous support of our work throughout the year.

Media Artists Studio Student Film Screening

COM Building Recital Hall, Tuesday June 7, 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM 

MAS is a year-long studio program for advanced media students and this screening will include the 14 individually produced films that we have been working on in this program through the year. These works include documentaries, animations, experimental works, narrative films and more!

Object/Lessons Gallery Show – through June 3

Gallery Hours: M / Tu / Th / F 10:00AM – 5:00PM

Thinking Through Craft is an advanced year long academic program which incorporates a philosophical study of craft with a studio practice in either wood or metal. Members of this learning community came with a diverse range of experiences making, and developed skills in one material over the entire year. The program has culminated in Object/Lessons , an exhibition curated to illuminate our intellectual and creative exploration, and show our best work. In it, we explore craft through the lenses of Material, Process, Function, Mediation, and Agency.

India Davidson – Student Installation

The show focuses upon the place of sexual desire and its expression in an evolving society, who determines what is deemed “acceptable”, and how they do so. Further explored is the effect of this upon the queer experience, in conjunction with the cultural co-option, commodification of, and violence against the female gendered body.

TO YOU, WHAT IS THE AMERICAN DREAM? (Soph’s documentary!)

Sohana is a feature length web-series of 7 episodes exploring the many ways Americans are coming together to live sustainably. It explores various intentional communities, co-ops, co-housing units, eco-villages as well as farms, and sustainable buildings. It confronts the American dream via a range of perspectives, questions its accessibility and discusses avenues for change. This 2 year long project was created alongside Nathan Kindler-Balmy and Haley Varney. It was shot throughout the western US last year and edited in the MML…. you can all imagine that It took forever to edit… and is finally finished, I would love to share it with you all!

Thursday May 26th at 12:30 in the Library Lobby
