Digital media festivals are the coming thing. Tamas Banovich of Postmasters Gallery, the Museum of the Moving Image and Brooklyn Polytech are presenting one that focuses on cellphones called the 4th screen.
The 4th screen showing of videos at Lincoln Center (Sunday July 30th) was quite exciting. Everyone was impressed by the h264 mpegs that were projected in a 400 seat movie theater. The resolution was remarkable. Raphaele Shirley from [PAM] was there to see how her video “La Chute” looked, a study in red and high wire drops. Two of my Rants were selected for the show, Rich Sucker Rap from 1978 and RANTAPOD _010.

I’ve been collaborating with Brian Caiazza who is a terrific young artist and an After Affects wizard. We will be presenting ten new High Definition Rants for the DIGIT festival this month (Aug.19th - Aug.27th )

You can now buy tickets for the DIGIT Festival online using paypal at The best thing to do is buy the $25 dollar pass to all the events. It’s a tax deductible donation and you will be helping lay the ground work for next year.

Brian Caiazza and I, along with Perpetual Art Machine [PAM] and Locus Sonus will be doing installations at the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance on 37 Main Street in Narrowsburg, NY (845-252-7576) for the opening day of DIGIT, Aug.19th .

Narrowsburg is a pretty little town on the Upper Delaware River. It’s worth the drive. There’s a terrific restaurant called 15 Main that is right in town that can make a daytrip into a pleasant sojourn. You may want to stay overnight. There are several B & B’s in the area. I would recommend Bradstan on White Lake It’s on the driving route below:
Bradstan Country Hotel
RR 17 Box B
White Lake NY 12786

There are many ways to drive to the Upper Delaware. I would recommend; Route 17 north to NYS Thruway(I-87). Go one exit on thruway to exit 16 Catskill Region. Go though tolls to Route 17 West to exit 104 Monticello Racetrack. Take 17B West to 114 (straight thru Fosterdale intersection to end of road. Make a left onto route 97 to Narrowsburg exit. Driving time (2-3 hours) depending on traffic.
