Snow and ice data 

A night of experimental films curated by Joe Steele

An offering by the colloquium ‘Film in the Present Tense’, RE:MI/ LaborBerlin co-presented with Light-Movement

Joe Steele (PhD student at University of Colorado Boulder, Member AgX Collective, MDes Harvard University ‘16) will present his current research involving the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) in Boulder and the Map Library, Herbarium, and the special collections of CU Boulder’s library. As part of beginning this research, Joe has programmed a group of experimental and personal films called “Snow and Ice Data” that takes a more reflexive tone toward thinking about the glacial and snow/ ice/ weather. This will be presented at Spektrum in Berlin as part of LaborBerlin’s Film in the Present Tense Colloquium in October 2017. The final form of this research will be an exhibition emerging from the artist’s response to the collection and the dialogues with archivists, scientists, and curators. Objects of most interest are William O. Field’s photographs and fieldbooks of glaciers in Alaska are of particular interest, aerial photography (which will be turned into shapes/ 3D models by the artist), glass plate negatives from the late 19th century, 8mm films, and prints and cabinet card photographs of glaciologists, workers, animals, and glacial erratics.
