white noise 2017“Signal as White Noise” by UAB Assistant Professor of New Media Elisabeth PellathyDigital projection and animation projects by faculty and students in the University of Alabama at Birmingham College of Arts and SciencesDepartment of Art and Art History will be presented in a one-night-only event, from 8-9:30 p.m. Thursday, June 8. The event is free and open to the public.  

Using UAB’s Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts’ atrium ceiling, walls and floor as projection surfaces, “Reconstructed Duration” will feature digital projections and animations created in response to the current AEIVA large-scale installation, “Facing the Hyperstructure” by artist Jessica Angel. Angel’s site-specific installation covers the entire lobby and atrium.

Screening “Signal as White Noise,” UAB Assistant Professor of New Media Elisabeth Pellathy examines video as noise, video as abstracted imagery through signal, and animation as text.

Accompanying Pellathy’s projection is an animated reconstruction of a Jessica Angel drawing by UAB student animation group “Absorption Lines.” The group includes students from Pellathy’s spring 2017 New Media Survey of Animation course: Leisha Chambers, Cheyenne Dawson, Noah Duffy, Kenyon Lair, Katie Lutz and Amanda Morgado.
