Saturday, May 17
Humanities Building, Room 112
The AACC Student Video Festival is an opportunity to showcase AACC student work within the community. This festival is a juried show, meaning that current students and recent alumni submit completed video shorts and sound art for a juror to select what will be seen for our festival event, a program running about 45-60 minutes in length. The content of student work is varied and will represent various genres (drama, comedy, etc.) and types (abstraction, narrative and experimental) of video. Truly an important event for students to screen their work outside of the classroom as a part of a larger gallery exhibition—the night is dedicated just to them!
Robby Rackleff, Baltimore video artist
Robby graduated in 2009 from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), Mount Royal School of Art with a MFA. Has taught as an adjunct at Towson University, Anne Arundel Community College, MICA, and Harford Community College. He has worked as an art handler for HMB Art Transfer and even delivered cakes for Charm City Cakes.
Robby’s passion for video games has informed his work conceptually and formally. As “Blue Leader”, a fictional character or avatar, Robby casts in landscapes and environments that explore narratives that accompany existing or fictionalized video games. More currently Robby cast himself as the main character often clad in a white shirt and black tie—an every man, using the language of gaming to explore issues of cultural relevance.
