At 8 PM, Benton C Bainbridge and son Ezra Bainbridge-Powers will kick off tonight’s Modular Equinox at the Williamsburg Schoolhouse at 330 Ellery. Father and son perform a short live a/v set with Mungo, Synth Tech and Jones modules fed with a thermal camera.
Works made at Experimental Television Center by Benton C Bainbridge and collaborators (Stephan Moore, NNeng-M) are included in this historic survey of the legendary New York state media art studio. Later this fall, Bainbridge conducts an audiovisual synthesis workshop and performs live a/v with Phillip Stearns.
For over forty years, the Experimental Television Center (ETC) in Owego, New York, was one of North America’s preeminent organizations for video art, fostering a community for creativity and innovation through its residency and tool-building programs. The Experimental Television Center: A History, Etc . . . is the first academic survey of the Center’s prolific, yet under recognized role in the evolution of video art. Through works of art, ephemera, and video processing tools, this exhibition maps the ETC’s influence within the larger narrative of the history of video into the digital and internet age.
