Thoughts on the Visiting Artist Lecture at Salisbury University

I had a wonderful time speaking to students and faculty at Salisbury University on Thursday. Thanks again to Tara, Dave and Brook. The facility is top notch and the whole event went without any technical glitches. I was able to cover a wide range of topics and I found the questions from the students to be sophisticated and thoughtful. The event was also really well attended.
Works screened:
London 5 (2006)
Journal of Drifting Hours, live super 8 projection. Footage shot in Quebec, summer 2007.
Ships Passing on the Huangpu River (2013)

I wanted to screen my newest work, but the lecture actually went over.
Super 8 still above is from the reel I screened.
Thanks again!

Preparing Notes for SU lecture and excerpt from Tongjing

Next week I am off to Salisbury University to deliver a talk and screen some of my films for the visiting artist lecture series (3/12/15). I am really grateful to have the opportunity to showcase my work and to discuss the audiovisual, landscapes, field recordings, and other things with the students of SU.  Here is a link to the event. This is part of their exhibition Alternative Topographies  In the meantime, below is a clip from a new work I will screen for the lecture along with super 8 films.

A special thanks to Li Xiaoxing for taking a number of us to TonJing last summer. A distinctive place  along the banks of the Yangtze River in Jiangsu Province. More on this later
