11AM - SUN JUL 24, 2016
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC - LOBBY, NEW YORK
Studio Visits is a quarterly series inviting hands-on makers to visit the Ace Hotel New York Lobby and interact with the public, sharing basic principles about their practice. This July we welcome local filmmaker Steve Cossman of MONO NO AWAREfor an afternoon of camera-less animation on film. Participants can try their hand at working directly on film, creating fun experimental loops to take home.
Since 2007, the Brooklyn-based cinema-arts nonprofit MONO NO AWARE has promoted connectivity through cinema by presenting workshops, lectures, screenings and an annual festival of expanded cinema performance. Focusing on the cinema as a space for shared experience and platform for discussion, MONO is an affordable and accessibility answer to the passive viewing experience of subscription based streaming media. As part of their continued effort to serve the greater community, MONO has supports schools, festivals, and institutions with a reference library, facilities, equipment rental and film stock.
