onedotzero_adventures in motion
onedotzero_cascade is an ongoing education project, creating a different model for creative learning that plugs students from all backgrounds and disciplines into the heart of the creative industries.
Leading up to the onedotzero festival, EMPAC has organized a series of educational artist exchanges with the students and faculty of Rensselaer. Via collaborations with professors from the School of Humanities, three different classes (New Media Theory, Animation 1 and Typography) will incorporate EMPAC-organized artist sessions into their spring 2010 syllabi.
As part of their coursework, students in the participating classes will be asked to develop projects inspired by the work presented by the visiting artists. Benton-C Bainbridge, Jeff Crouse and Reid Farrington have been selected for the exchange. Class sessions with the visiting artists are being opened to other students and professors to join. Brown bag lunchtime gatherings @ EMPAC are also being organized while the artists are in town to allow for more informal access to these visiting talents. Resulting class projects will be presented during the onedotzero festival at EMPAC, and receive a critique from the festival’s head-lining group, AntiVJ.
As part of the onedotzero educational offerings, there will be a free practical workshop with Benton-C Bainbridge and AntiVJ leading up to the festival.. The workshop will be open to the public and available on a sign-up basis. The student presentations and critique will be open to the public and held on the Sunday of the onedotzero festival at 2:30 PM. The event will begin with a brief introduction by the festival’s director, Shane Walter, and a presentation by AntiVJ.
