A recent opportunity I had, was assisting two of my current professors in the filming of the Collider6: Data Performance at the Emily Davis Gallery in the Myers School of Art at The University of Akron. Anthony Samangy is currently my 4D Motion professor which involves video editing and Markus Vogl is my Advanced Graphic Design professor and the one who presented me the opportunity. With wanting to explore and enhance my video work, I felt this would be a unique experience to film in an area with difficult lighting and sound…and difficult it was. Above is the video with minor editing done in Adobe Premier to boost the color and lighting as well as shot with 3 different cameras. Below is the information regarding the Collider Series and I am hoping to gain a better understanding of performance filming such as that as my semester in 4D Motion continues.

“Collider6: Data,” an array of events presented by The University of Akron’s Myers School of Art, showcases how data influences artists and the rest of us.

The free events include an exhibition; a lecture by software artist Jer Thorp, recently the data artist-in-residence at The New York Times; receptions; and a dance performance of S.A.R.A., a fully interactive mobile app that creates its own sounds and visuals based on video input and body movements.

Co-curated by Anthony Samangy and Markus Vogl, UA assistant professors of graphic design, the “Collider6: Data” exhibition runs Sept. 9 through Oct. 11 in the Emily Davis Gallery in Folk Hall, home of the UA Myers School of Art, 150 E. Exchange St., Akron. The gallery is open Mondays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The “Collider6: Data” exhibition features works by such contemporary artists as Peter Crnokrak, Ben Fry, Jonathan Harris, Genevieve Hoffman, Jesse Thomas, Jer Thorp and Carlo Zapponi.
