Gate Pages :: January 05: Barbara Lattanzi

 

Barbara Lattanzi creates software for video improvisation and annotation, as well as other works of interactive media. Her work has been screened at venues such as the 2003 Ann Arbor Film Festival, the 2002 European Media Art Festival, and Robert Beck Memorial Cinema. Her experimental software "C-SPAN Karaoke" received an Honorary Mention at Transmediale 2005, the Berlin-based international media art festival. Her interactive media works have been exhibited at the 2003 Version>03 Digital Arts Convergence, Chicago; the 9th New York Digital Salon; Electronics Alive II Invitational; the 4th Seoul Net and Film Festival; and Turbulence.org. The production of her multimedia applets and software has been stimulated in part by the open structures of net-based venues such as the online software art archive runme.org and Rhizome's "Artbase," where her work is included. An essay about Lattanzi's software in relation to 1970s experimental film appears in Millenium Film Journal Nos. 39/40. She currently teaches at Smith College in Massachusetts.
