On March 5 of this year, Jill gave a talk at Pawling Trinity, in Pawling, NY. The talk was a co presentation of the Dutchess Arts Council and the Oblong Land Conservancy and Friends of the Geat Swamp (FrOGS), and it corresponded with the opening of an exhibit of Jill's work at Gallery on the Green in Pawling.
I recorded her talk, partially, with the hope of using portions of it for the radio show. Since her talk was so integrated with the powerpoint images she using to illustrate it, trying to use it for the radio was a bit futile. But, since it was such an informative and interesting talk, I wanted to make sure we could share it with a wider audience.
I combined the audio captured during the talk and married it to the PowerPoint Jill had assembled to create the video embedded below, which consists of her entire talk.
The video clocks in at about an hour and a half. For the first 55 minutes, Jill discusses and surveys a range of artists whose work either is inspired by, responds to, or utilizes scientific methodology or techniques. In the final 40 minutes, Jill shows images of her own work and discusses arc of her creative career.
The video starts with former DCAC President, Benjamin Krevolin's introduction of Jill.
