Scholarships for 2 week Workshop on Embedded Video/Video Installation – deadline 21 March 2007

Call for Applications: Two Merit Scholarships available for emerging or mid-career artists to take a two-week course with artists E.G. Crichton and Susan Working at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, Colorado. The course will take place August 13-24, 2007.

These awards are designed to help artists interested in combining video with objects and space. Students will learn about the technologies behind creating embedded video works and video installation and will discuss a critical context that informs these works. Scholarships include: Full tuition, lodging and three meals a day for the duration of the course. Winning applicants must provide for their own travel and studio fees.

Concept: What happens when artists take the ephemeral medium of video and shape it within sculptural space? For over four decades artists have defied limitations of time and material through experiments with embedded monitors, shaped screens, and projections onto objects and/or within constructed spaces. In this workshop the investigation will continue with an emphasis on simple constructed shapes, altered found objects, planned camera work, and simple video editing.
