Events
  • Artist Anna Craycroft, of the current exhibition Tuning the Room in Ben Maltz Gallery, in discussion with artist and curator Micah Silver.

  • Emily Thorpe's art work addresses the twisting formation of memory through spatial relations and moments of domesticity. She will be presenting a solo exhibition for her Graduate Thesis at The Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art & Design, on view February 20 to February 25, 2017. There will be a closing reception on Saturday, February 25, 6-9pm.

  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

  • "In publishers’ terms, Shock and Awe – a hefty, intellectual book about glam rock – is timely." - Jude Rogers, The Guardian

Dave Schultze: 2007 TLC Technology Grant Report


Report:

Brief description of your funded project including activities performed:

Online video software training, with a full audio soundtrack for verbal explanation. The software covered was Rhino and Studio MAX, which are 3D modeling, prototyping, and animation applications that are used by both the OTIS Toy Design and Product Design programs.

What were some of the insights, accomplishments, and/or benefits you derived from the project?

New insights included an appreciation for the amount of work it takes to write, perform, edit, and publish professional content! A ten minute lecture took 5-10 hours. No kidding. I also had to learn the Camtasia software, which allows you to record the computer screen at 15 frames per second, along with a ‘voice over’ narration during software demos. It doesn’t work at all without a tight outline (or script) and several practice runs. I got the best results when I only tried to talk for 1- 2 minutes maximum, and then edited the best takes together. Accomplishments included a total re-design of my training website, such that the video lectures would be properly presented. I also enlisted the help of students to research related web-links, which are also posted on the site. See section at http://www.schultzeworks.com/links.html [archived version available here] As I got further along, I then realized I had more material than my web interface allowed, so I bought and learned yet another piece of software for generating fly-out menus. Finally, I bought a set of cool orange icons to use on each page as a visual guide to the content therein.
