Video Screenings: Jacqueline Goss & Julia Meltzer

West Hall Auditorium

Jacqueline Goss (www.jacquelinegoss.com/index.html) makes videos and web-based works exploring the rules, histories, and tools of language and mapmaking systems. Her projects take as their source specific acts of writing and cartography that bring about cultural change, technological innovation, or create social narrative ruptures.  For the last four years she has used 2D digital animation techniques to work within the nascent genre of the animated documentary.  A native of New Hampshire, she attended Brown University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She teaches in the Film and Electronic Arts Department at Bard College in the Hudson Valley of New York. Currently Goss is working on "Stranger Comes to Town" -- an animated documentary about the US-VISIT biometric system.

Julia Meltzer (www.speculativearchive.org) is a media artist based in Los Angeles. For the past fifteen years she has produced media projects and documentaries that deal with social issues such as police brutality and the criminal justice system. She received her BA from Brown University and her MFA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She is a 2004 recipient of a Rockefeller Media Arts Fellowship and was a Fulbright Fellow in Damascus, Syria in 2005-6.
