“There’s a certain irony of holding a digital festival in a rural town like Narrowsburg where cell phones still receive only spotty reception,” states Tina Spangler of the organizing committee for DIGIT. “But, this quiet atmosphere creates a comfortable environment in which local residents and visiting artists alike can come together to examine the ways digital technology impacts our everyday lives.”

The seventh annual DIGIT digital media exposition kicks off Friday, June 18 from 7–9 p.m. with a double opening reception of Conrad Gleber’s video installation “Four Walls / Four Seasons” at Alliance Gallery and “Alternate Reality” video screenings and installations in Loft Gallery at 37 Main Street in Narrowsburg, NY. Both exhibitions will remain on display through July 10.

DIGIT is proud to host several visiting artists and their innovative works, including Thomas Zummo’s digital art displays revealing brand new technologies such as augmented reality and laser graffiti; Ivan Martinez’s “Running Man” projections from a flatbed truck on Main Street; Mat Rappaport’s video and Morse code over the Delaware River titled “currents,” Owen Mundy’s projected installation “The Consequence of Scale,” and “Beloved River: The Portal Form” by DIGit founder Patrick Carullo.

Narrowsburg Roasters will once again host “Java with the Geniuses” an open and free discussion for anyone to ask technical questions—from how to download a picture to how to start a website—on Saturday, June 19 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Next door at the Arts Center, a series of workshops will explore topics including Conrad Gleber’s “Using Microsoft’s Photosynth” and Ron Littke’s “Videotoons” animation workshops for kids 3–12 years old.

The “Quick and Gritty” video slam returns, inviting artists of all skill levels to make their own 3-minute digital movie. In what has become a festival favorite event, the short videos are screened on Sunday, June 20 at 12 p.m, at “video slam” at the Tusten Theatre. A jury of judges will award a $500 grand prize.

Sponsored by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance, DIGIT encourages creative and technical excellence and experimentation among individual artists and small groups working with digital tools. The event is funded in part by a grant from the Electronic Media and Film Program of the New York State Council on the Arts.

VIDEO PROGRAM

Gratuitous Art Films
Glitch, 2009, video, 6:07 min

Glitch is an experiment in mistakes. It is charming speedboat ride down the rabbit hole created by manipulating and looping archival footage with audio created by Andy LaChance and Jeff Burns. It is a piecemeal composite that relies on it’s inconsistencies. Utilizing the giving nature of archival footage already littered with “glitches” we chose to enhance, distort or create our own foibles at will. Also, we think dental health is an important.

Thistle, 2009, video, 8:12 min

Thistle is the story of a walk in the forest. A young boy’s journey and discovery of something forbidden. The roil of emotions as he battles with the nature of what he has seen. The wonderment, the fear, the growth…the armadillo. One wonders, can you come back again once you have seen the vulture?

Anna Pinkas
Bronx Golem, 2009, hand drawn animation, music, radio documentary excerpt, 2:00 min

Eddie Carmel was once billed as the Tallest Man on Earth by the Ringling Brothers Circus, but it is Diane Arbus’ 1970 picture, “A Jewish Giant at Home with his Parents in the Bronx, NY” that remains in the public mind. The memories he left to those who met him are as lasting and vivid as if he had, in fact, been a heroic and tragic Golem from a Jewish folk story

Kennedy James
The Fortune Cookie, 2006, video, 8:32 min

The Fortune Cookie is a video work about cinematic narration, the superposition of the American and French soundtracks of the original film.

PERFORMANCE by R.G.B.A.
R.G.B.A. will feature the project “Synchroma”, a video and sound instrument developed by DRAW. The project Synchroma derives imagery entirely from sound, via analog-digital conversion hardware/software whereby each color channel is driven by a separate audio stream: red, green and blue. Extremes of frequency are used, varying from 0.013 to 43,000 Hz, to produce variations in palette, tempo, shape, direction and pattern. Once harvested, the synthesized color fields become the basis for improvisations set to multiple vibrant scores. Among this array of hardware/software, a core device is the ‘Synchronator’ developed by Gert-Jan Prins and Bas van Koolwijk during a video and audio research residency at Impakt 2006, currently distributed by the Netherlands Media Art Institute.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Gratuitous Art Films is a collaborative effort between artists Jeff Burns and Cat Gilbert. Jeff is the editor, co-founder and contributor for “When History Attacks” and Talkie 21 Studios. Cat is multi-media artist who makes books, drawings and otherwise.

Kennedy James, previously working under the name of Jimmy Owenns lives and works between New York City and Paris, France. Since 1998, James’ work has taken a clear direction towards notions about the splitting of the perception, narration or psyche and the search for identity.

Anna Pinkas was born in 1985 in Geneva, Switzerland. Working primarily in animation and drawing, Anna investigates narratives-personal and historical, uncovering and conjuring up our constant search for linear, comprehensive and resolved stories. While she was raised in a family with a long migration history, her own departure from Europe to the United States was integral in triggering the set of inquiries that form the core of her art practice today. Pinkas currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

R.G.B.A. is a live video audio performance collaboration between duo DRAW (Nisi Jacobs and Michael Schumacher)and Sarah Bernstein and Stuart Popejoy. DRAW’s compositions form the basis for improvisations involving processed video, algorithmically generated sound and live musicians. Through experimentation and dialogue, they explore in depth the relation between sound and image. Their practice involves a number of strategies, such as coupling specific sound and image sequences, using multi-channel setups for video + sound, role-switching, and exploring notational techniques. Sarah Bernstein and Stuart Popejoy create sonic work exploring liminal spaces: between pitch and timbre, speech and music, development and repetition, lucidity and opacity. Bernstein combines acoustic violin performance with live-processed spoken word and vocalization; Popejoy uses the Nord Modular G2 synthesizer to create generative compositions and complex sound processing environments; finally, the violin and voice signals are selectively further processed live in the Nord synthesizer. Compositional elements – motives, texts, strategies, patches – are integrated with live improvisation through the techniques of feedback, generational development, [de]emphasis of textual signification, and interplay of “pure” musical elements with non- and extra-musical elements.
