STICKY IMPULSE is a monthly series of archive events held on the last Tuesday of each month (excluding December and August). The title, 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.
