COLOR, LIGHT, MOTION, is an online series featuring media artists and scholars in dialogue about artworks from the Bermant Collection of media and kinetic arts. Each featured presenter will discuss selected artworks in history and context and then present their own work and connections. This series is produced in collaboration with Harvestworks NY and the David Bermant Foundation.

The David Bermant Foundation: Color, Light, Motion was established in 1986 to encourage and advocate experimental visual art which draws its form, content and working materials from late twentieth-century technology.
