STICKY IMPULSE references the materiality of videotape from the electric impulses that transfer content to magnetic tape to its inevitable deterioration of its core elements; the problematic, things difficult to navigate or let go of; creative spontaneity, abandon, recklessness, or the need to take action.

STICKY IMPULSE is a Crista Dahl Media Library & Archive event encouraging new engagement with VIVO's collections. Please RSVP.
