University of Maine professor Owen Smith, director of the Intermedia MFA Program, will have his video presentation “8 Transitions: video event works” presented as part of a celebration of the 100th birthday of composer John Cage. The event will be held on Oct. 20 at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Seattle.
The Late Now talk show’s “John Cage Centenary Special” will show Smith’s work, a series of eight short video works that emanate from a challenge he gives students in his video art classes. The works are intended to function as visual event scores that draw on the Fluxus tradition of short haiku-like scores that are both instigations to action-performance and deceptively simple poetic meditations on the world we live in. For more information on the special episode with Smith’s works, visit the The Late Now show website.
