R-Cade Symposium at Rutgers-Camden University

On April 21st I will be presenting research conducted with Eric Souther, Assistant Professor of New Media at Indiana University South Bend, and Jason Bernagozzi, Assistant Professor of Digital Media and Animation at Alfred State University, at the R-Cade Symposium at Rutgers-Camden University.  R-CADE invites scholars to dissect, and repurpose obsolete technologies in an attempt to understand their historical and cultural significance. Scholars and artists work over the course of many months by researching and/or repurposing an object of study, and they share this work during the symposium. With funding from R-Cade, we have worked to convert an analog-to-digital television tuner into a new hardware glitch instrument for use in performance and exhibition, on its own or in collaboration with other digital and analog media tools.
