The I (Eye) in Media
Opening Night: Friday, March 14, 6 to 9pm
Gallery Hours: Sat/Sun, March 15,16 and Sat/Sun, March 22,23, 12pm to 5pm
An installation project about the “I” in media and how we make it, subculture media catalysts, and how to add your “I (Eye)” to the media.
“The I (Eye) in Media” installation shows you how easy it is to add your I (eye) to the media, celebrates coverage of protests and demonstrations, and introduces the community media champions,
World premiere of the Predicta PC steampunk TVs Episode 5 gets you into the TOHO-Scope newsrooms who report on Godzilla through the decades.
SF’s favorite costumed roller skater is having his first gallery installation, and he’s ready to talk about his slinky satire and street theater life.
“The media” is made by people, and we are the people who put ourselves in the media as much as we are the media. We are activists, makers, hacks, hackers, videographers, costume designers, internet video viralists, and culture-harvesters who post flyers. Media is all around us and our role is flippy-floppy all day long: sometimes we are absorbing and sometimes we are making.
Our Bay Area media –community, local, print, internet, television, radio– is rich with participation, and it’s your personal choice to be included in the local media, via political art and satire, flyer art, neighborhood newspapers, public access television, political demonstrations, organizing, and documenting under-reported events, and more.
