Conferencia - Día 5
Descripción | Abstract
The videomusic work presented by Merlin Campbell deals with the migration of snow geese, climate change and more particularly the impact of humans on the life of these migratory birds. Campbell's piece seeks to depict the physical, cognitive, and emotional chaos that snow geese experience during their migration process between the Arctic and the eastern seaboard of the United States. As part of this lecture, the artist will briefly discuss his master's research-creation work, the concept of his work and his creative process.
