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.

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.

Shredding Day - Monday, June 29th
The Division of Business & Finance is hosting a summer shredding event for your office’s sensitive and confidential documents. Enrollment Management has kindly offered Alumni Hall’s parking as the shredding location once again. This will take place on Monday, June 29th from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
Shred-it (formerly Cintas) will supply a secure truck equipped with state-of-the-art shredding technology that will destroy all confidential or sensitive Alfred University documents before leaving our site. The only requirement of the department would be to transport documents to the Alumni Hall parking lot for the on-site truck. This service is being offered at no cost to the departments.
