CML on Wheels
The Critical Media Lab’s gone mobile this week, taking up residence in a cube van in the Arts Quad at WLU for the 2012 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. In what I’m told was a true feat of driving proficiency by MA candidate Scott Kobewka and a crew of tenacious navigators, including PhD candidate Jason Hawreliak, CML Director Professor Marcel O’Gorman, and a handful of volunteers and onlookers, the team navigated the truck around a 90 degree corner, through a narrow opening in the quad to where the truck currently, rather comfortably, resides — right next to the Fred Nichols Campus Centre entrance.
The truck will be open from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. from Saturday, May 26th through Saturday, June 2.
The CML Truck serves as a mobile gallery of critical media projects by UW English students and faculty. Currently on display are several critical digital games by Professor O’Gorman’s Necromedia grad students, the Roach Lab exhibit by PhD candidate Jessica Antonio Lomanowska, and a few of Professor O’Gorman’s projects, including Cycle of Dread and Teat Tweet. There’s lots to explore, so come see us in the WLU Arts Quad this week!
