Rodney Buxton

About: Rodney Buxton teaches in the area of film/television studies and video production, with emphases in narrative and experimental film and video production as well as queer theory and images. His past work explores the links between the social and institutional contexts of entertainment production and the construction of film and televisual texts. Presently, he is working on an ongoing art project Vanishing Present/Vanishing Presence. This project captures through digital photography and digital painting the tenuous state of U.S. national parks and national monuments that face impending threats from exploitation by industrial drilling and mining interests as well as climate change.
