Alex Cole will lead a group discussion focused on trends in experimental video making and how these new directions inform self-image, influence media, and genre. He will explore the definitions assigned to video-poetry, poetryfilm, video art, and experimental filmmaking and how these associations relate with various progressive states of media.
