During college I had the opportunity to work with the Rubin Museum of Art’s digital team. Located in Chelsea NYC, The Rubin promotes the art and culture of the Himalayas. My reel shows excerpts from some of the projects I worked on. The introduction are some bloopers from the introductions we filmed for the Rubin’s artist talk series, Brain Waves and Red Book and Talks About Nothing. I edited the film from the series with including the introduction for artists including Laurie Anderson, Martin Scorsese, Fiona Shaw, and Bill Viola.
Casting the Divine was a video displaying the museum’s 5th floor Nyingjei Lam Collection. This was the first time the works have been shown together, and the collector requested a video. We were also experimenting to see if we could create similar videos with curator commentary. These videos could be available for people who could not see RMA’s exhibitions in person. I worked on the photography, and video editing from start to end.
I worked on two other smaller projects at the RMA. The museum held an exhibition about Homai Vyarawalla, India’s first woman photo journalist. We created a promotional video where I helped to shoot footage in our studio of curator commentary, and subtitles. I also did the photography for their Verbal Description Demonstration Video. A new project was being developed to provide a verbal description of works for visually impaired patrons.
