Inhabiting Recognizable Formats with Lee Heinemann

December 2019

From artist-made advertisements to public service announcements, weather and news broadcasts, there are rich histories of contemporary artists injecting common formats with their own—sometimes subversive—content. Drawing inspiration from Lee Heinemann’s project Get Your Life! collaborators and other contemporary artists working in video and new media, participants created short video works inhabiting a recognizable format. Participants performed specifically designed small prop and costume elements, used green screen technology, and deployed simple video editing to complete their short works.

For the final presentation, participants displayed their short video creations at our end of season party.
