Biographical Text

Stan VanDerBeek was an American experimental filmmaker at the forefront of technology. He began making films in 1955 and working with computers in 1965, when he produced multimedia pieces and computer animation in collaboration with Bell Labs. In the 1970s, he constructed “Movie-Drome,” an immersive audio-visual laboratory for a new kind of cinema-stage. His multimedia experiments in “expanded cinema” included movie murals, projection systems, planetarium events, and explored early computer graphics and image processing systems, merging art with technology and dance with films. He was a fellow at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at MIT (1969–72 and 1976–77).
