Grant Willing

Grant Willing Work from Svart Metall. “‘Svart Metall’ is an investigation into the themes and ideals of the black metal music genre. Black metal explores the ideas of ancient pagan and satanic views and presents these feelings in a violent, often cacophonous style of music. Progressing from the themes of the music, a subculture has […]

Collin Zipp

Collin Zipp Work from his video and collage series. Below is a IM / email interview I conducted with Zipp. The collages above are not originally diptychs, I have paired them for formatting reasons. “Raw video footage is degraded using physical forces. The resultant images are then digitally captured and edited.” – Collin Zipp JT: […]

Petra Cortright

Petra Cortright Work from Male Female Child. There is a rather informative interview here. Her ANIM8D GIF work is also interesting, but I could not practically replicate the context. Check them out and you will understand. “Her reference points (cats, dogs, psychedelia, youtube, geocities, and so on) are all things very near to our hearts, […]

Abigail Reynolds

Abigail Reynolds Works from  Universal Now and Mount Fear. “The Universal Now, is a series of collages that uses imagery sourced from publications such as guide books and atlases, combining photographs of landscapes or monuments, enmeshing them together. In the process of splicing and joining the images, cuts are made into the printed surface and […]

Jessica Eaton

Jessica Eaton Work from her oeuvre. “Eaton’s exhibit is a display of virtuosity, each piece a microcosm of what could become the basis for a larger show. Every print in the Emily Carr Institute graduate’s show represents a technical practice she has been refining for a year or more, as she related at the opening. […]

Michael Naimark

Michael Naimark Work from Viewfinder: How to Seamlessly “Flickrize” Google Earth. “The tension between computing technology that augments human activity and technology that automates it goes all the way back to the 1960s. It can be seen in Viewfinder, a demonstration of a photo-sharing or photo-placing system developed by a group of researchers and digital […]

Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller

Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller Works from the The Murder of Crows. “You part two layers of thick red curtains to enter the atrium of Hamburger Bahnhof, where chairs, speakers, and a single table with a gramophone perched on it – all arranged in a circle – form The Murder of Crows, the new installation […]

Justin James King

Justin James King Work from And Still We Gather With Infinite Momentum. “Justin James King radically intervenes in the common spectacle of the tourist vista by removing the view itself. A lone figure stands on a promontory gazing out into the utter void. Commenting on the reflexive act of looking (and by extension, on the […]

Maryanne Casasanta

Maryanne Casasanta Work from suffices to decide if the necessary mood is there. “Maryanne Casasanta’s work offers questions to unanswered histories and contemplates the elusive exchange between art and commonplace. These documents observe the space and pattern that ornaments the land, while paraphrasing a desire to be grounded.” – Maryanne Casasanta

Mark Wyse

Mark Wyse Work from Disavowal. “Disavowal is an engagement with our conflicted relationship to desire. If in a crude sense modernism is an embrace of desire and postmodernism is a critique of that desire, this show seeks to commingle the two. In doing so it explores key works by both contemporary and historical artists who […]
