Video of NYU talk

video
These are the final moments of our talk at NYU on FEb 21st 2009. Some kids jumped on stage to play and you can see Ren Weschler and I hanging out at what looks like a Dharma station (the swan perhaps). That mysterious voice is Max Shtein explaining the need for artists and engineers to work together.

Thanks to Jeff Rutzky for shooting the video.

Work shop in Utah!



I'll be teaching a 5 day workshop from June 10th - the 14th at SPIRO ARTS in Park City Utah. Space is limited- head here for more details and to sign up!

Matt Shlian in the UK

My work will be featured on a new show in the UK airing on Sky One called oops tv. Here's the show description:

"OOPS TV is a brand new comedy entertainment show for Sky One. Voiced by Justin Lee Collins, it takes a look at the best TV out-takes, home videos, CCTV shockers, sporting bloopers and YouTube shenanigans from all over the world. From newsreader nightmares to bungling burglars, wedding woes to the world’s funniest pets, if someone somewhere has done something stupid, and someone else has been there to film it, and someone here from the legal department has said we can put it in the show, then we’ll put it in the show."

This sounds like youtube for people without the internet. Tune in Friday February 20th at 6:30 pm. or just watch this:
