Aiming for the trees: Random Access Information and the Digital Video Study
For the 13th international symposium, “Gift of Nam June Paik 13,” a discussion about the digital archive of Nam June Paik’s video and its possibilities and limits under the theme of “video digital commons.”
The beginning point of this symposium is Nam June Paik’s essays, “Extended Education for the Paperless Society” (1968) and “Random Access Information”(1980), which inspired us in the first place to imagine a digital video archive. Via an examination of the current attributes of the digital archive―ephemeral, virtual, moving images, etc.―we will reach discussions about what kind of “digital commons” should be achieved through Nam June Paik Art Center digital video archive.

CUNY GC: New Approaches to Narratives of the AIDS Crisis Roundtable
Black/Feminist/Lesbian/Queer/Trans* Cultural Production
Speaker and co-organizer. This symposium honors the 20th anniversary of Cheryl Dunye’s film, “The Watermelon Woman” (1996). The first feature film directed by and starring a black lesbian, the production of this film marked a watershed moment for black cinema, feminist cinema, lesbian cinema, and new queer cinema. Appearing in the heyday of what filmmaker and scholar Yvonne Welbon has called the “golden age” of black queer cinema, the film garnered widespread critical acclaim, and its success inspired many black lesbians to create their own films in the years following. Her latest release, “Black is Blue” (2014) is a critically acclaimed narrative short film that follows the life of a black transgender man in Oakland, California. Dunye continues to break ground through complex filmic representations of the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality. This symposium is both a moment of celebration and introspection: featuring presentations by scholars who draw on the interdisciplinary fields of feminist, lesbian, queer, and trans* studies in their critical approaches to black cultural production, but who also will engage “the tensions and contradictions that bind these approaches together.”
