Turbulence Commission: "Domain of Mount Greylock | Video Portal" by David

Adams and North Adams sit at the base of Mount Greylock, the highest point
in Massachusetts. It is their unifying landmark and, according to local
Indian legend, a spiritual beacon. A drawing of the landscape is used as the
organizing structure for a series of embedded video clips. Seeded with
videos by the artist, the domain is now open to everyone (artists, citizens,
kids). Submissions should be relatively short and can be video art,
documentary, animation, personal stories related to place, family histories,
short film, experimental, or anything else. A united portrait of the towns,
their people, and their history will be created by many voices contributing
to the domain.

"Domain of Mount Greylock--Video Portal" is a 2008 commission of New Radio
and Performing Arts, Inc., (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. It
was made possible with funding from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the
Visual Arts.

"Domain of Mount Greylock--Video Portal" is part of "Networked Realities:
(Re)Connecting the Adamses" -- a collaboration between Greylock Arts,
Turbulence.org and MCLA Gallery51-- which includes four commissioned works
housed in the Department of Public Works at www.newadams.es.
