Location: UCF Center for Emerging Media (500 W. Livingston Street)

Are you interested in the creative potential of animated GIFs, motion graphics, interactive installations, video shorts, and other forms of moving images? At this lecture, local artists Michael Forrest and Nathan Selikoff will be sharing their passion for this form of art with a diverse group of students and faculty from the departments of Digital Media, Film and Studio Art. Earlier this year, Forrest and Selikoff curated and organized the first ever BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer) Orlando, a one night gallery exhibition featuring explosions of light and movement by local and world renowned digital artists, designers and filmmakers (http://byoborlando.com). The gallery space will be filled with computers, DVD players, projectors, and light – every surface becomes a canvas and the space will be transformed despite having nothing hanging on the walls. Forrest and Selikoff will be bringing this pop up projected experience to UCF in Spring 2016, and will encourage students to submit their work as part of this exhibition. Michael Forrest (http://michaelstevenforrest.com) is a designer currently working as Art Director for Wakeboarding Magazine in Winter Park. Nathan Selikoff (http://nathanselikoff.com) is an artist and UCF alumnus, and recently won a Best of Orlando award, “Best Young Artist Putting Orlando On The Map.”
