Monday, April 27: Jason Contangelo's Image Manipulations
Jason Contangelo, a UB MFA candidate, graciously shares tips for manipulating analog and digital images, greeting viewers in the backyard of his childhood home in North Tonawanda where he’s staying with his parents. During this time under quarantine Jason has been experimenting with a polaroid camera, instant film and double exposures, sharing some techniques he’s learned. Jason also invites us inside his home to share an experiment with processing an image via coding and mathematical editing. How cool is that?


Tuesday, April 28: Doodle Demo with Pam Glick
The great Pam Glick returns with the fourth episode of her bighearted Doodle Demo. The theme this week is Spring Romance Fantasy. Pam understands that romance might be the furthest thing from our minds right now. Then again it might be the closest thing! Either way, it’s spring, so Pam asks us to stay positive and embrace the fantasy of romance. What have you got to lose?


Wednesday, April 29: Announcement of Work In Real Time Contestants
The producers of Work In Real Time are excited to announce the three contestants who will be featured in the reformatted digital show, which has its IGTV premiere on @artscollaboratory on May 5. Work In Real Time is a playful virtual competition that asks—and tries to answer—the question: what would it look like if a sculptor were on Shark Tank? Come meet our gutsy contestants on Wednesday!


Thursday, April 30: Maryam Muliaee and Naila Ansari’s Embodied Landscape
Originally planned as part of the Arts Collaboratory's spring season of interdisciplinary programming, Embodied Landscape has been reframed by Maryam Muliaee and Naila Ansari as a virtual experience. They share a segment of their film on @artscollaboratory IGTV, in addition to a VR piece. A collaborative multimedia production, the work is a reflection on Buffalo’s forgotten architecture.
