If you’re driving into work in Northern New Mexico Monday morning (April 24), tune in to KVSF‘s “The Richard Eeds Show” (101.5 FM) at 8am MDT, as I’ll be joining Richard to discuss the latest developments for our upcoming Outdoor Vision Fest®, happening the night of April 28 on the campus of Santa Fe University of Art and Design. You can live-stream the broadcast here, and yes, there will be a podcast posted later on Monday, in case you sleep in a little late.
As part of the continuing Outdoor Vision Fest media tour, I’m joining substitute host Linda McDill on KSFR‘s cherished weekly broadcast “Cinema Scope” to discuss all things OVF 2017: this Friday night, April 21, at 6:30pm MDT. You can live-stream the radio broadcast here, or listen to it the old-fashioned way on 101.5 FM. Don’t forget to come out for OVF itself on Friday night, April 28, on the campus of Santa Fe University of Art and Design — if you’re anywhere in the northern New Mexico area!
If you missed the live broadcast of “The Richard Eeds Show” on KVSF-FM Friday morning, you can still catch the archived podcast of the segment, where OVF student artist Katrina Vollbracht and I both talk about Outdoor Vision Fest 2017, coming up on April 28. Augmented reality, virtual reality, interactive Byzantine ikons and much more — all coming to OVF in 3 weeks!
I’ll be guesting on “The Richard Eeds Show” (KVSF, 101.5FM, “the Voice of Santa Fe”) this Friday, April 7, at 9am MDT — to kick off 2017’s Outdoor Vision Fest (OVF) media tour. This is the 7th year of OVF, and I’m thrilled to again be executive-producing the event (which I’ve done since co-founding it in 2011), working with Santa Fe University of Art and Design faculty colleagues Brad Wolfley, Tom Miller, Jason Goodyear and others.
In 2016 we attracted some 3800 attendees to the campus for an exciting night of cutting-edge media installations, 100% created by undergraduate students. This year we’re hoping to do even better — and we’re bringing in Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality (via the Blippar app, available on iOS and Android — download today!) and other new media toys to further enhance the OVF experience.
Outdoor Vision Fest® (OVF) began with a core belief that contemporary media students needed to think beyond single-channel media and explore cutting-edge technologies that enabled audience interaction with — and immersion in — moving-image experiences and environments.
But the unexpected bonus, one of my favorite painters for decades: John McLaughlin (in, surprisingly, his first major posthumous retrospective). To get all art-theory (from the LA Times): “[his] negative space allows consciousness to blossom and manifest itself.”
And you can’t get any better than that.
