Video Graffiti

Soile Mottisenkangas is undertaking her residency at UCA Farnham this week. She has given a couple of lectures on slow tv and Nordic documentary (poetic, character-driven documentaries) (see the artist’s residency report). In addition, she also introduced the concept of ‘video graffiti’, and led a tour of mobile screening of short films at Farnham. Using the Philips PicoPix PPX4350 WiFi Portable Projectors, we redefined where a screen is, and explored how meanings of images change when images are re-located. We have engaged MA students in the School of Film and Media and MFA Photography, BA students in Animation, Media & Communications, Media & Creative Writing, Digital Film and Screen Arts. The locations we explored include UCA Farnham Quad, Lion and Lamb Yard, St. Andrew’s Church, Farnham Library. Lots of interesting works have emerged from these workshops. It’s been an interesting journey with these young promising creative colleagues at UCA.
