  • High&Low Bureau is a curatorial duo composed of Yael Messer and Gilad Reich. They curate exhibitions, film programs, performative events and publications, while engaging with a plethora of disciplines, media and modes of artistic expression.Their curatorial practice is dedicated to the exploration of artistic strategies that reflect on, and suggest alternatives to, specific social-political conditions.

  • Los Angeles is a city often described as having no center. Its art community has turned that "disadvantage" into an advantage and given itself a license for adventure. Organizations, galleries, and artists find decentralization to be an exciting option and they establish their addresses in unexpected neighborhoods and zones in the city and even beyond, in other cities and states. What are the challenges and advantages of this programmatic and conceptual strategy? What are the risks, to organization and audience alike? Is this necessary, and if so, is it sustainable?

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.
