Slow Motion Suicide
A woman plants a really small tree in a field where
nothing will ever grow. She gives the tree water, obviously in vain.
She winds a hangman's rope around the tree's branches and puts the
rope around her neck. She sits next to the tree and waits… Gives
the tree water... Waits....

George Pfau - Whispering Beast (Rising/Guided)
Whispering Beast (rising/guided)" is a video of a cream colored
dog, her shadow, and her unseen guide. I'm very interested in how
dogs are so anthropomorphic. To explore how the malleability of
the figure's agency and recognizability, I manipulated the speed
of the video to emphasize the dog's transitions from four legs to
two. One influence for this video was a painting by Francis Bacon, "Paralytic
Child Walking on All Fours (from Muybridge)" (1961) in which
a small human figure is walking on its hands and feet. Another relevant
idea comes from the unseen driving force, or hidden puppet-master
present in zombie films.
The videography was done by Kristina Willemse,
an Oakland based filmmaker.
Kathleen Quillian - Wasteland
Through stop motion animation "Wasteland" follow
the path of the industrial food system from field to table & back & shows
how the industry operated at the expense of the health of the society

Damon Smith - "Cardboard" for
I always loved Rauschenberg's cardboard work, his response to minimal
art, he used pure cardboard
on the wall and later did ceramic multpules
based on the wall works.
I saw some at the Seattle Art Museum years ago on tour and it always
stuck with me.
I used the food and eating sections to break things up and reference
Rauschenberg's idea of working
between art and life.
I am using lloopp software to process field recordings and the film
is all from a small digital camera.

Hong Zhang - How Far is it to
In my performance art, I tried to measure
out how far away it is from my home to Expo Site 2010. The start
point was at my home, No.342 Northern Chongqing Road, which is
in a narrow and shabby lane near downtown of Shanghai. I used
manhole covers to measure the distance. The numbers of manhole
covers would be used as the marks, I was going to Figure out them
through different ways until I obtain the distance at last. Finally,
the job done, I reached the Expo Site. What a long distance. At
end of the trip, the path I had covered impressively jumped out
from the map. Obviously, the Figure of the path is a huge question
mark, and the point of the question mark is just located on the
site of Expo. I know how far it is from my home to Expo Site 2010,
but I don't know how far it is to a better city.

pulled from deposition transcripts to examine the representation of
ACT-UP demonstrations through the lens of a single incident...police
violence experienced by Kriss during the Chicago ACT-UP AMA Demo in
'A Wake for Analog' celebrates the passing of analog broadcast into
the dustbin of culture. Analog took with it phenomena that now exist
as metaphorical relics and digital quotation: vertical roll, sync distortion,
snow, visual flatness, frequency interference, phase, light trailing
and iris ephemera. Analog is dead, long live Analog!
