Lab Café and Cafe Image: The World Through the Eyes of a Video Camera -- CSCD Film Festival

2015-3-10 (Tue) 19:00 - 21:30

At Osaka University's Center for the Study of Communication-Design  (CSCD), as part of high level cultural education aimed at graduate school and undergraduate students, we have developed courses utilizing video cameras. At this festival, we will be showing over 100 film pieces by the students of these courses. You may even be able to see some fresh, daring video expression that you wouldn't normally see. This should give us a chance to think about the ambiguous line between pro and amateur, as well as that of expression and recording in the world of film. We hope you take this chance and come immerse yourself in film.

On March 11, during "The World Through the Eyes of a Video Camera -- CSCD Film Festival," we have invited guests to talk about what they see in the films on display. We'll also be asking you all about what you find to be the same and different between these films and those you see every day.

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics. The program aims to make the station a communication space in the arts and academia by taking up various themes in philosophy, art, science and technology and providing the general public with chances to be exposed to expertise on those topics.

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
