BRIEF BIOGRAPHY

Carol Goss has made and performed analog and digital video art since 1974. Performances have included the Public Theatre in NYC and the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco.   Her work has been widely exhibited in the US and is in international collections.  As a co-founder of Improvising Aritsts, along with jazz pianist Paul Bley, she has produced and released audio and video recordings with musicians such as: Sun Ra, Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius, Jimmy Giuffre, and Gary Peacock, receiving several international awards.

In 1974 Nam June Paik sent her to the Experimental Television Center where she recorded on the Paik-Abe Video Synthesizer and the David Jones Colorizer.  During the 1970s she performed on the Bill Hearn Video Lab, and the Dan Sandin Synthesizer.  Her interest in motion imaging led her to create, with a grant from the Museum of Holography in 1979, the first integral hologram to incorporate a raster-scanned video image (made with the Rutt-Etra Synthesizer) with a digital image.

In the 1980s she made the transition from analog to digital imaging tools.  In the early 1990s the Amiga provided a viable platform for the improvisation of moving images in live performance.  Since then Ms. Goss has continued to produce and exhibit work made with paint and animation software, plus in-camera imaging and editing.  She has lectured on electronic motion imaging and the nature and meaning of abstraction at the Selcuk Universitesi in Konya, Turkey, at the Bunting Institute at Harvard-Radcliff, and at a philosophy colloquium at Columbia University.

In 1996 Ms. Goss founded the Not Still Art Festival to create an international forum for artists working in abstract and non-narrative electronic motion imaging with music and sound design.   Not Still Art is a sponsored project of the New York Foundation for the Arts.
