Rudiger Fischer

My work is of narrative nature, it opens up a space from which the recipient can think ahead. The works contain one (or more) questions that you can talk about. Mostly my questions research the relationships between reality and possible reality, between sign and matter. You can say: I am suggesting a narrative. And as well: I am creating a situation. Some situations do not seem to be possible at all and some fictions seem to be more attractive than the real history.Some fiction I created is drawing dystopian stories of the future. The series is examining the way we are constructing future and especially failed futures. That’s what I am doing, and I call it art.

Barbara Bartos
(United Kingdom)

My work explores the image in an experimental way using a variety of media, from audio-visual projects to site-specific environmental interventions.
Current investigations revolve around what is an image and how different forms of perception shape its meaning.I tend to work by limiting myself to a few essential materials, each piece being the product of an elaborate generative process. The subsequent works are hybrids between my conceptual framework and nature. I attempt to strike a balance between human intervention and nature, creating works that hover at the threshold between my conceptual premise.

Rudiger Fischer
(The Netherlands)

The philosophy and beliefs surrounding my artistic approach are based on searching the self within its surroundings. Inspired yet confronted by the world around him, I find artistic comfort within the search for belonging and connecting. What better way to explore life then through movement and researching the body within the space around it?
My work always explores psychological and emotional realms. I believes that through personal experience he can use his work as a mirror for both his audience and himself. In the past Edan has made stage works on numerous subjects such as hierarchy, sexuality, fantasy, stress, addictions, belonging and perceptions amongst others.

Yona Levi Grosman

Yona Levy Grosman is a multi-disciplinary artist, whose artistic activity comprehends paintings, video art, drawings, poetry and essays. By her choice, she lives and works in the Negev, the southern part of Israel which is mostly a vast desert. And the desert is the most influential factor of her artistic work. It seems that her whole creation is an attempt to understand, sometimes to conquer, sometimes letting herself being captured by the desert's power and magic. One may refer to her work within the romantic paradigm of the sublime, on one hand the admiration of the vast landscape, on the other the realization of the insignificance of human beings.

Miya Ando

iya Ando is an American artist whose metal canvases and sculpture articulate themes of contradiction and juxtaposition of ideas.The foundation of Ando’s practice is the transformation of surfaces. Applying traditional techniques of her ancestry, she skillfully transforms sheets of burnished industrial steel, using heat and chemicals, into ephemeral abstractions suffused with subtle gradations of color. She says: “I have a deep appreciation for the dynamic properties of metal and its ability to reflect light. Metal simultaneously conveys strength and permanence and yet in the same instant can appear delicate, fragile, luminous, ethereal."

Xiaohong Zhang

Landscape painting was regarded as the highest form of Chinese painting, The classical Chinese landscape painting are rolling hills and rivers of native countryside in peaceful scenes done with softer, rubbed brushwork. Emphasis was placed on the spiritual qualities of the painting and on the ability of the artist to reveal the inner harmony of man and nature, as perceived according to Taoist and Buddhist concepts. Beside my investigation of re-figuring the traditional art form of Chinese landscape painting.I tried to insert modern industrial chaos into the traditional peaceful vision. It is a very interesting mix.
Mandy Williams
(United Kingdom)
I am a photographer and video artist who is interested in the social dynamics arising from contemporary culture - particularly how personal identity is affected by environment and how our social and affective lives interconnect.
My interest in the psychology of place and how a sense of home is created and sustained has been a catalyst for both autobiographical and voyeuristic projects, documentary approaches to more conceptual ones.
My recent landscape work and photographs of the built environment share an underlying narrative about human interaction or presence and the psychology of a particular place will always lead me to research and initiate a project.
Brice Bourdet
Where are we today and where do we come from? This generation creates new encounters, while keeping the old ones. That’s what we call our «sou- venirs» our memories. It’s also the idea of an individual seen as a moving border, the idea of a place which is called «here» is connected to elsewhere. The idea of different terms which act as a border that rather connects than separates. In a world more and more disenchanted and materialistic, the notion of travel, of the faraway, of elsewhere, are in a sense, what let people escape the grip of everyday life. There is also the choice to live elsewhere, to live abroad. « You are here » this is what we can read on urban maps in big cities.
March 23rd, 2015  Harry Burke interviews Kari Altman

Kari Altman is an American artist, art director, performer, and musician focused on the tropes of today's survival fantasy aesthetics, identity mutation, and "sharing culture" an American artist, art director, performer, and musician focused on the tropes of today's survival fantasy aesthetics, identity mutation, and "sharing culture"
As she underlines " You could make other people's art, you could predict what everyone was going to post next, faster than they could post it. Your ideas and personalities became brands instantly. You started viewing everything in situ with similar and related content around it, which in art always included other work that was copying it or at least was uncomfortably similar. It also included products, artifacts, architecture, and selfies. The timeline from thought to post diminished. All content sources became equalized. Resources were scarce. Memes dominated. It's a story for another time." Read the >>>complete article>>>

March 26th, 2015 Cyberformance in the Third Space: A Conversation with Helen Varley Jamieson
(interview by Randall Packer)

Randall Packer has interview Helen Varley Jamieson, an interesting digital media artist, playwright and performer from New Zealand.
She underlines "that there are different kinds of relationship between audience and performers, at least in performances using platforms such as UpStage, where the audience have the possibility to chat with each other and with the artists.  The response from the audience to the performance is in some ways more direct – they can comment in the chat and will often be very honest in their comments; and in other ways more distant – a standing ovation has to be typed into the chat, which is less of a loud emotional outpouring."

Urte Beyer
The camera is the tool I use in the urban landscape to merge reality with utopia and triviality with complexity. My work revolves around the observation of what lies on the periphery – things and objects that frame our everyday life yet exhibit a spirit or a character of their own. Buildings that seem to stare back at me, brutal residential blocks that radiate their cold anonymity, or martial temples of Nazi origin cast in rock. I make copies of my prints, change their proportions, detach details and elements from their original cityscape surroundings. I then cut, fold and rearrange the prints, into three‐dimensional volumes.
Juerg Luedi
My art practice refers to stories of reversion, representation and displacement. I understand my art work as multidimensional collages of opening spaces of intercultural contentions. It intends to evoke in the eye of the beholder individual, collective, socio-political and religious representations. I like to shift, to shuffle and to superpose places and meanings to make perceptible, observeable and apparent.The strategy of alienation, displacement and transformation is a search for making social conflict zones visible, to provide an insight to the public to think and perceive space and time on a different way.

Frances Schandera

Frances Schandera-Duarte include´s a large palette of eclectic art materials in her paintings. These are fashioned in a way that merge and blend all elements into a unified and compelling whole. She layers oil paint with ink, incorporates glued surgical gauze, mineral sands and various papers to create these meditative paintings.  This allows for many different interpretations of the final piece. Schandera-Duarte manages to direct the living surfaces of her works with idiosyncratic structures to create dream-like mindscapes.
Katy Unger
Perception is sharp and delicate.From sound to shape to colorLiving beings within the wombfeeding upon reflectionsin constant vibration. The silent hum of an electrified landscape. A gradual warmthon the edge of consciousness. In my work and in my process, I look for a connection between the conscious and subconscious - in my execution, a balance between control and chance. I seek to find a unity within the anonymity of the vast social sphere we have created and the deeply personal individuality which we can never escape.
MyLoan Dinh
I came to know the Beats during my college years. I had a wonderful professor, Daniel Gerzog, who taught a literature course who introduced me to the work of Ginsberg and Kerouac. I believe this generation of aesthetic souls to be instrumental—an entire group witnessed the talks of Zen scholar Daisetz T. Suzuki at Columbia (including Agnes Martin, Rothko and Cage, amongst others). During the time while I was in college, Ginsberg was still alive, and he was quite active in NYC those days.
Victor Pardinho
Audio-reactive pieces is one of my biggest research and interest field.  When I started doing this piece I just had the music to follow so I started to experiment on catching some frequencies of the sound and generating some real-time graphics. By this time I already knew that I wanted to do a video mixing foreign places footage, that I had some editing already done.  That's where this red tone came and that's what I liked about it, making variables and being surprised by the result.
Gosia Mielech
We live in a society that cultivates speed, greed, a culture of material achievement, power and superficiality. There is seldom a place left in life for deeper contemplation, pursuit of peace and balance. Sababa is all about sharing and rediscovering inner perception.
Sababa is a dance piece, that illustrates Zofia and my (co- creator of the piece) overwhelming fascination with dance, freedom and commendation of Israeli culture. It presents a sine wave of people’s emotions.
Wang Haiyuan
My life experience has decided my interests and the way I’m doing my job. The small problem I faced today might be the big problem we are facing nowadays my job as art designer gives me a lot of experience. Due to space constraints the project ”Empty house” has not been fully exploited and completed. The idea of this project is to make a static noise environment when participants walked into the space, shied the amplified static noise by the sensor, and amplify the sound of participants’ bodies by the sensor.
Alice Zilberberg
When you think of fairy tales, you might think of a beautiful princess with long golden hair, ahandsome prince in shinning armor, or a fairy godmother performing miracles. Think again. The sweet,innocent children's tales known today did not always end with “happily ever after”. The meaning, tone andcontent of older versions of these fairy tales, collected by the Brothers Grimm, was dark, even ugly. They included harsh punishment of characters, sexual inferences and often death.

Nathalie Reynolds
Through an investigation of form and interplay of dark & light, I make reference to the dichotomies of randomness and chaos, vs. balance and renewal. Shapes, quirky brushstrokes, and contrasting colours become unintended characters in loose enigmatic narratives, woven via layers of paint. I approach the act of painting with a barrage of material on canvas, then revisit the work at a later time to refine with a more controlled technique. I aim to capture the immediacy of expression resulting in unexpected subject matter.
September 16th, 2014  Charles Eppley interviews the artist Sergei Tcherepnin

Charles Eppley has interviewed the artist Sergei Tcherepnin who participated in a lecture series organized by the Center for Experimental Lectures at Recess. The evening was dedicated to investigating sound as an artistic material, both material and psychological, and also featured philosopher Christoph Cox. While Cox discussed the idea of sound as a pre-linguistic material, Tcherepnin took the opportunity to discuss an aspect of sound practice that remains largely unheard: queer sound and queer listening.
Tcherepnin underlines that he "started to realize that there was not much conversation on sound, which in reality is very subjective... but normally it is talked about much more objectively. For example, even though a lot of the early 1960s pieces might have subjective tactics or strategies, like liberating the spectator to experience sound differently by walking around the space, there was still always an acceptance of sound as a pure, absolute material.>>>complete interview>>>

March 12, 2015  Global Audiences, Zero Visitors: How to measure the success of museums’ online publishing
(posted on Rhizome by Orit Gat)

An interesting article that can be read on Rhizome "As museums are rethinking their relationship to their audience online, an increasing number chooses to publish online magazines, and many of these publications emerge from institutions that are not necessarily the major museums in art world hubs. The attitudes toward these publishing initiatives vary—some choose to outline the scope of their publishing platforms in the shape of their programming, while others produce magazines that are thematically related to subjects the museum covers but are not directly linked to the art on view. What they all share is a feeling that online publishing expands the museum's audience, making it a potentially global one."  >>> read it >>>
