Daniel Boord was chair of Film Studies Fall 2005 to Spring 2009. He is currently Director of the Stan Brakhage Center for the
Media Arts. Boord is among the second generation of video artists in the United States. He is known for his collaboration with Argentine artist Luis Valdovino and their exploration of cultural identity at the edges of globalized corporate culture. He has also collaborated with filmmaker Greg Durbin. Boord and his collaborators explore and test notions of everyday life through the creation of what the art critic and poet David Antin calls “homeless narratives”. Boord’s works have been twice selected for screening by the La Biennale Di Venezia, the Venice Film festival – once in 2000 and then in 2003.
