    Recent Projects: Ant Farm Media Van v.08 [Time Capsule] and To & From LAX
    Chip Lord, Professor Emeritus, Film & Digital Media, UC Santa Cruz

    Chip Lord’s talk presents several recent projects and includes a historical introduction to the radical art and architecture group Ant Farm, 1968–1978. In 1970 Ant Farm travelled cross-country in a “Media Van” shooting video and networking with other artists. Ant Farm Media van v.08 [Time Capsule], an interactive sculpture made in 2008, invites users to leave a “donation” to a digital Time Capsule, but also functions as a small video theater showing works made in 1970. This on-going project migrates across time and space and intersects with new ubiquitous technologies.

    As a member of Ant Farm, Chip Lord produced the video art classics Media Burn and The Eternal Frame. His work has been shown at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arts, Reina Sofia in Madrid, Spain; SFMOMA; and at The De Cordova Sculpture Park and Museum among others.
