Conversation with Barbara London, David Ross and Constance Dejong at Hunter College Art Gallery

This post was copied in 2017 from and L2O posting made in 2015.

Tuesday night I attended a panel discussion at Hunter called "Barbara London and David Ross in conversation with Constance DeJong." This was in the context of the "The Experimental Television Center: A History, ETC..." show at the Hunter College Art Galleries in collaboration with the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art Cornell Library - Sept 25 - Nov 21, 2015. The Hunter Art Gallery is at 205 Hudson Street in NYC. It’s a great show by the way.


I Sing Thy Bulk Ell Tra

This was recorded in 1986 in Brooklyn, NY. Terry Mohre and I used to drive out to Hank Linhart's house in Greenpoint where the three of us had a weekly video poker night (no cards were played). My video and audio synthesizers were installed in Hank's studio at the time. I don't recall us finishing much other than this piece, which Terry sent to the 1986 Bon Videonale where it won some recognition. I soon moved my studio to a new apartment in Park Slope and our weekly meetings stopped.


Lonesome Blues

YouTube and Vimeo lend themselves to short singular work, which would be perfect for so much of my earlier real-time video segments. I intended to create singular clips for posting some of the many short works that went into my early compilations like Green River Blues, Lonesome Blues, and Video Haiku, see Untitled #20. Looking at this material though, I changed course and cut a compilation of work called Lonesome Blues, originally known as Suicide Blues.
