SUNY Broome Adjunct Instructor Rich Harrington is the recipient of a New York State Council on the Arts Finishing Fund grant for his project, “Direct Instruction.” Finishing Funds grants support artists in the completion/post-production of film, video, sound, new media and Web-based work.

Nick Rubenstein, Co-Founder/Creative Director of the LUMA Projection Arts Festival, worked with Harrington to create a piece that incorporates video projected images on a wall of 477 “Language Master” speech therapy cards used in elementary schools of the 1960s. Accompanying the video piece is a 42-minute audio track created from the included cards.

The piece provokes questions of language, meaning, repetition, gender roles and place in the context of mid-century suburban middle-class American culture.
