A Lecture/Workshop on Combining Academic Research and Artistic Filmmaking
Experimental film artists Miriam Gossing & Lina Sieckmann from Cologne, Germany, will present
their work with Mermaid activists from Portland, OR and Teenage Vampires from Forks, WA., and
talk about the relationship of literature and film and the influence of Folklore and Fantasy. Their
work uses documentary imagery, fiction, and found footage to inform the cinematographic
presentation of architecture, hyper-staged environments as landscapes of desire.
Students are invited to engage in close dialogue and present their own ideas in working with film
as a medium combining research and visual pleasure.
