Porter College and Film & Digital Media Visiting Artist Series Presents: Measuring the Unquantifiable: an evening with Jaqueline Goss

Mon, Mar 4, 2013, 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Communications 150 (Studio C)


Jacqueline Goss's film and video work reveals an abiding interest the human desire to measure and quantify - and all the ways this desire is thwarted by a chaotic and complicated world.  She will show and discuss sections from a number of animated and live-action works made in the last decade.  

Jacqueline Goss has used 2D digital animation techniques to work within the genre of the animated documentary in work including "How To Fix The World" - a look at Soviet-sponsored literacy programs in 1930's Central Asia and "Stranger Comes to Town" - an animated documentary abou the idenity-tracking of immigrants and travelers coming into the United States.  Her most recent project is "The Observers" - a portrait of the summit of Mount Washington, NH: home to the highest human-recorded wind speed and one of the oldest weather observatories in the western hemisphere.  

A native of New Hampshire, she attended Brown University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.  She teaches in the Film and Electronic Arts Department at Bard College in the Hudson Valley of New York.  She is a 2008 Tribeca Film Institute Media Arts Fellow and the 2007 recipient of the Herb Alpert Award in Film and Video.
