Tommy Becker “Song for Disobedient Youth”
Tommy Becker attended the San Francisco Art Institute as an undergraduate, and has an MFA in Film/Video/Performance from California College of the Arts. A poet trapped in a camcorder, Becker continues to feed video, poems and original music into his never-ending saga, “TAPE NUMBER ONE.” Often Becker’s single channel works are translated to live performance. In 2005, he was an artist in residency at Headlands Center for the Arts and included in Bay Area Now 4. His work has appeared at a number of film festivals, and most recently at the Portland Experimental Film Festival and Antimatter Film Festival in Victoria, BC. Since 2004, he has worked as an educator in the Bay Area.
