Plum Academy 008 Deborah Stratman: Lecture Screening
Saturday, September 26, 2009, 7:30PM - 9:00PM
"1 credit. Deborah Stratman will present some of her film work and talk about the history, uses, mythologies and control of highly varied landscapes from Muslim Xinjiang China, to rural Iceland, to gated suburban California. Deborah is a Chicago-based artist and filmmaker whose work plies the territory between experimental and documentary genres. She also works in other media, including photography, sound, drawing and sculpture. She recently completed a series of works that collectively address concepts of the paranormal in the information age and is presently working on a new film about the milieu of elevated threat, patriotism, wilderness and the possibility of transcendence. Stratman teaches in the School of Art & Design at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
