Crystal Z Campbell will lead Generating Sounds Collaboratively, a participatory sound workshop where attendees will generate new sound and reinterpret iconic music that will be featured in the artists upcoming film SLICK. Participants will learn creative strategies for sound design, including foley sounds, vocals, and the specific ways sound can be a critical component of a film. This event will be recorded.
Bio of the artist
Crystal Z Campbell is a multidisciplinary artist, experimental filmmaker, and writer of Black, Filipino, and Chinese descents. Campbell finds complexity in public secrets—rumored information known by many but undertold or unspoken. Recent works revisit questions of immortality and medical ethics with Henrietta Lacks’s “immortal” cell line, ponder the role of a political monument and displacement in a Swedish coastal landscape, and salvage a 35mm film from a demolished Black activist theater in Brooklyn as a relic of gentrification. Campbell is a Harvard Radcliffe Film Study Center & David and Roberta Logie Fellow (2020-2021) living and working in Oklahoma, and founder of archiveacts.com. Campbell was recently named a 2021 Guggenheim Fellow in Fine Arts.
