Anna Friz — Sound Colloquium Visiting Artist Talk

Next Wednesday, Feb 21st at 3:30pm in Maclean 522, Anna Friz will be giving an artist talk as part of the Sound Practices Colloquium Series.

Anna Friz’s bio, taken from her website:

“Anna Friz creates media art, sound and transmission art, working across platforms to present installations, broadcasts, films and performances. Her creative and scholarly works often reflect upon media ecologies, land use, infrastructures, time perception, radio and transmission art histories, and critical fictions. She specializes in self-reflexive radio for broadcast, installation or performance, where radio is the source, subject, and medium of the work. Currently her focus is on a series of audiovisual works under the title We Build Ruins, which expressively consider mining and industrial corridors in the high altitude desert in northern Chile; Useful Radio , a live performance and installation created with Jeff Kolar based on Rick Prelinger’s radio listening archives; and Water Line/Estuary Almanac , a 365-day composition based on the tidal patterns of the Fraser River in Vancouver created with Absolute Value of Noise for DeutschlandFunk Kultur and ORF Kunstradio, of the German and Austrian public radio.”
