Libraries Speaker Series: Craig Baldwin
Filmmaker, artist, and curator Craig Baldwin will visit Hunt Library on Thursday, February 28th, 7:00 - 9:00 p.m., in IDeATe Studio A. Baldwin's creative interests involve the repurposing and remixing of found imagery. In his films, he reassembles footage from educational, industrial and other cinema sources to create genre defying alternative histories with manic visual rhythms. In his Orphan Morphin' presentation, he “surfs the wave of obsolescence” using spoken word, graphics and motion picture clips to advocate for the radical re-working of marginalized film material in the forms of collage, compilation-doc and speculative fiction. For more information and to register, please visit cmu.libcal.com.
