iCinema's Associate Professor Ross Harley awarded ARC Linkage Grant

Monday, August 11, 2008

An ARC Linkage Grant has been awarded to iCinema Executive Member, Associate Professor Ross Harley and School of Media Arts’ Mr John Gillies for their project Video Art Online: from UBU films to the Present.
The project will create, consolidate and link to substantial materials pertinent to video art in Australia. By way of a dynamic online video database and online archives, this project will make available works from the 1960s-90s alongside more of the most recent video works. Acknowledging and utilising the possibilities of user-generated and participatory media, video art online aims to link artists, organisations and collections together by way of open-source and Creative Commons protocols. This project makes use of innovative ways of exhibiting, circulating, annotating and supplementing video works in the age of peer-to-peer networks.
