Congratulations to Carrie Dashow, Cat Mazza, Shawn Lawson, Penny Lane and Annmarie Lanesey, grant awardees of the Experimental Television Center Finishing Funds.
Finishing Funds provides artists with grants up to $2500 to help with the completion of electronic media and film art works which are currently in progress. Eligible forms include film, audio and video as single or multiple channel presentations, computer-based moving-imagery and sound works, installations and performances, and works for new technologies, CD ROM, multimedia and the Internet. Work must be innovative, creative and approach the various media as art forms; all genres are eligible, including experimental, narrative and documentary art works.
The EXPERIMENTAL TELEVISION CENTER was founded in 1971, an outgrowth of a media access program established by Ralph Hocking at Binghamton University in 1969; today, the Center continues to provide support and services to the media arts community.
- to support the creation of work using new electronic media technologies, by providing space and time to artists for personal, self-directed creative investigations, and by providing funding and other administrative support directly to makers
- to encourage an informed appreciation of media art by supporting the exhibition of film and electronic works by artists and by arts and cultural organizations in the State, and to encourage the development of new venues and audiences in all regions
- to help honor our independently created moving-image heritage by initiating projects and participating in partnerships which address the needs for research, education and preservation, and place independent works within a larger cultural context
