Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship at Girton College
Moving image artist Logan Ryland Dandridge has been appointed to the first year-long Cavendish Arts Science Fellowship at Girton College, Cambridge (UK) from October 2021.
Dandridge is an Assistant Professor of Film at Syracuse University New York (USA). In recent years his practice has centred around the creation of multi-channel installation video art projects. His filmmaking interrogates many concepts including ideas of spirituality Gothicism and science fiction Blackness and the American South and his own familial bonds through the poetics and aesthetics of experimental cinema. Dandridge draws on a range of processes including assemblage superimposition multi-channel orientation as well as jazz hip hop spoken word poetry and other experimentations with sound and lists influences John Akomfrah and Arthur Jafa as well as Audre Lorde and Octavia Butler. The contrapuntal and probing nature of Dandridge’s research and interests provide a unique catalyst for raising questions about our world.
