"Bay Area Video Art Meetup" on video screen

The Bay Area Video Art Meetup aims to bring together video artists to share knowledge and ideas, and to raise awareness of each other’s work. We also seek to expose people who are curious about video art to the equipment and techniques used by artists currently working within the medium, to assist each other with the creation and repair of video equipment, and to discuss strategies for the furtherment of video art in the Bay Area.

Masks are optional for this event. New Guests must have a Full Guest Account before this event starts. Add the FREE account set up on check out or click here.

Timing: 3 hours
Location: Coworking/Textiles suite 206
Prerequisites: none for attendance, but presenters should bring a rehearsed presentation on a laptop lasting no more than 5 minutes.
Age: Attendees should be capable of adult behavior, such as sitting quietly through presentations. (13+)

What is video art?

Video art may consist of analog video synthesis (the generation of abstract shapes, patterns and colors from raw waveform signals), digital video synthesis (similarly abstract, but often achieved with GLSL shaders), heavily processed video footage (color shifts, use of chroma key, digital effects, etc), glitched video footage (processed to achieve intentional errors or near-errors, either analog or digital), or any combination of all four of these. While traditional videography is an important artform, it is not what we mean when we use the term video art. Video art is strongly related to, and may overlap with VJing, liquid light shows, experimental film and new media.

Artists seeking to present their work should contact Bill Fisher ([email protected]) to guarantee a 5-minute time slot. We will hold open 6 time slots for those people who have reserved one ahead of time, and hold open 2 time slots for people who arrive at the event without a reservation on a first come, first serve basis. Presenters should prepare and rehearse their presentations and bring them to the meetup on a laptop computer. We will have 5 minutes after each presentation for questions.

After the presentations we will have a general discussion, and finally break for snacks, refreshments and socializing.
