A SENSE OF PLACE: TED LYMAN in Buffalo Nov 1 & 2, 2007
Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center and the University at Buffalo are pleased
to welcome Vermont based filmmaker Ted Lyman to Buffalo. Lyman has been
engaged with experimental filmmaking since the early 70s, creating films
inspired by the American Avant-Garde. Through his ensuing career he has
maintained a belief in the power of the extraordinary syntax of the moving
image exposed and explored by that movement. The overall strategy of his
filmmaking is to use the syntax in ways that are legible and illuminating to
the general viewer. While his works differ in content and appearance, they
all are founded on a sense of place, interaction with nature, and a
commitment to expression by visual, non-narrative means.
