IEA Visiting Artist: Scott McCarney
Date: June 1-5 Location: The Institute for Electronic Arts at the School of Art and Design of the New York State College of Ceramics Cost to Attend: Free Sponsored by: The Institute for Electronic Arts and the Division of Expanded Media Scott McCarney, of Rochester, NY, will be participating in the artist in residence program of the Institute for Electronic Arts over the week of June 1st. A graduate of SUNY Buffalo, McCarney combines his background in photography and design along with his love for the corporeality of craft and the philosophic possibilities of sculpture into his bookworks, an art making practice he has been following since 1980. During his residency, McCarney intends to revisit his early experiments with the "play of light" on folded paper in book form. Using the IEA’s laser cutter, pages with text and image would be turned into patterns that animate as the pages of the book are turned. This system creates activity on both the recto and verso of a singular leaf, creating the opportunity for imagery to pass through pages rather than emerging from them. The goal is to create a book that, in essence, reads itself like a perpetual montion analogue-information machine. The is the possibility that these book would only be able to be read once, as the process of turning the pages may destroy the book as one progresses through it, creating books that are ephemeral instead of archival. More information and Scott’s work can be found on his website: http://scottmccarneyvisualbooks.com/. The Institute for Electronic Art’s Visiting Artist Program is sponsored in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Stanley G. Schneider, one of the nation’s top-rated criminal defense attorney’s offered Alfred University’s (AU) Class of 2015 some well-deliberated advice – “love your work and your relationships; don’t settle for less.”

Schneider, a 1971 AU alumnus, spoke Saturday morning (May 16) before a capacity crowd in the Galanis Family Arena at the McLane Center on campus.

His message was taken from his own life experiences, he explained, noting “Success is defined in many different ways …. Judge yourself (don’t let others do it for you). Success comes from your own sense of decency and accomplishment. Find your passion in life. Create your own style, follow your heart and your intuition. I followed my heart to a rewarding career.”
