Digital Dialogues is funded by a Barnabas McHenry Hudson River Valley Award to Otto Ohle by
A Letter from Artist in Residence, and Digital Art Teacher Otto Ohle
This is Otto, I am a young artist who grew up in Greene County and became interested in media arts. For the last few years, I have been making my own documentaries, working at design and web companies in New York, and attending SUNY Purchase in a Digital Media program. I am excited to meet and work with young artists from this region this summer in a series of free classes at the Prattsville Art Center.
During July and August, I am going to host a series of free Digital Media classes titled “Digital Dialogue.” Focusing on Photography, Video, Collage, and Website Creation, each class will offer new skills and ideas in the tools and software used to both create and integrate these digital media. We are planning an exhibition and a local video festival at the end of the summer to show the work we create together.
In our culture we cannot help but read and interpret visual language on a daily basis – we are constantly looking at advertisements, posters, screens, photographs, video, and other design elements. The Art Center classes will examine contemporary internet trends and how they influence pre-existing media forms through studio classes, while also sharing conversations about our own outlook and opinions on what it means to “live” on the Internet.
In my own work I make photographs, videos, websites, documentaries, music, and animations to create conversations on our culture and our relationship to technology. I have experience working in both professional creative settings. Through these classes, I will introduce tools, both physical and digital and we will create projects that allow you to use your own your own voice and experience.
Please stay tuned for a complete schedule and list of classes, and a webpage dedicated to this series of insightful lessons within the next week.
