You can find me at minute 6:30, although you should know that the entire segment of this CUNY-TV spotlight “Study With the Best” is interesting. We filmed this about 8-months ago, and I distinctly remember how the day unfolded for me as I prepared for the interview and chose the visuals to accompany my discussion of my work, which was then, unexplored. My conceptualization of what I have to offer (any) academic discourse was very vague, and I had only just begun to explore visual practices in the most rudimentary of fashions. Today, I have a keener sense of graphic design norms, marketing and advertising ploys, and I now initiate conversations about novel approaches to interdisciplinarity, shaping an academic careers and new technological resources for (self) publishing and promotion.
In this segment, I appear at minute 6:32. I present quick glimpses of my visual projects and discuss why I choose work in the new media lab. This is my first time seeing myself speaking and just “being” on television, my mannerisms, expressions and body language. At long last, I feel that my interests, expertise, professional network and blogging are converging to shape the beginning of what I intend to be a multi-faceted practice of engaging in new conversations through different media and methods with colleagues and friends in allied fields.
