    iDMAa Weird Media Conference '22: Infodemic

    iDMAa Weird Media Conference '22: Infodemic

    Recently the iDMAa held a conference and exhibition here in Winona and we were there check out all the weird digital art being presented. Two of the artists that we spoke with, Jennifer Gradecki and Derek Curry, had a video piece in the exhibition titled: Infodemic. Both artists are also assistant professors at Northeastern University in Boston and their piece Infodemic deals with the way that misinformation spreads through todays social and digital media while gaining traction as truth. How do we discern what is truth and what is fiction in todays world? Well, Jennifer and Derek are here to help us figure that out. And to prompt us to think a little deeper when consuming today’s digital media. I’m Bill Stoneberg with Jennifer Gradecki and Derek Curry at the iDMAa Weird Media conference, today on Art Beat.

    Imagine yourself as a pirate, scavenging the Atlantic Ocean with your crew looking for the treasures hidden within the sea. You and your scallywags have ventured far and wide aboard your ship, The Dazzling Pearl. Aboard this ship is an elephant…. Wait a second that’s not in the script…
    This week we talked with Rodrigo Escalante, Scenic Designer for The African Company Presents: Richard the 3rd, which is a part of the GRSF 2022. Rodrigo talks with us about the importance of reusing set pieces, how a set feels when it is arranged, and how to translate reality into a given space. Rodrigo also talks with us about how he incorporated the ocean into his set in a very unique way. So find your scallywags and grab your eye patches as we learn more about set design together.
