Vortex in Orange

By Jacob Koestler on Oct 30, 2012

This video loop utilizes visual feedback and antiquated equipment in a conversation about media and physical distortion of the Appalachian region: a mountain top pop off, black gold collection, sediment settles still tucked in. When they leave it hollow, the grass returns and a new geography is accepted. Turn the century and through a peephole at the base the stream bleeds out orange. Repeat. Rerun. Off-air. On.  

Transmission

By Carlos Pacheco on Oct 26, 2012

Transmission, is an installation that employs the viewers own curiosity in an exploration of self-awareness and the viral transfer of information via the act of sending information from one location to another by means of a wireless broadcast, but also through the control of information, a transference of power, in the form of sight, through a simple, hand-to-hand transaction. Currently on display in the Ohio Univeristy Art Gallery, on the 5th floor of Seigfred Hall, in Athens, Ohio as part of the second year graduate exhibition, Merges and Dissolves.

CATWALK: CLEETY (The World’s First Feline Super-Model)

By brian zahm on Oct 8, 2012

my cat’s sexy as hell. and quite frankly, she’s very hungry for fame and its trappings. thusly, she shakes (and licks) her money-maker, and i capture the magic thanks to the @LAB’s fine-fangled fotography equipment. i’m not sure how i’m going to handle being the father of a feline celebrity, so we’ll see how that pans out. and well, i kinda already see the fame’s going to her head and think she’s developing a drug problem…she’s been hitting the catnip pretty hard lately. she’s been wearing sunglasses everywhere because she’s hungover from those all night benders. and i tell her that i’m worried about her, that i care for her, that i only want the best for her, and maybe she should cut back on the catnip–i mean, she’s like john belushi in his heyday–but anyway, she’s just shoots me this...

Introversion to Extroversion

By on Oct 7, 2012

Another important aspect of introversion is the ability to transition between the two personalities—the guarded introvert transforming to a temporarily aggressive and talkative extrovert. This pretend extroversion is not necessarily instantaneous like switching on a light. It involves conscious preparation with a temporary breaking down of the outer defenses—much like leaving the gates to the city ajar and unguarded. It requires preparing the inner self for potential conflict and it can be a daunting task somewhat like rearranging a living room or cleaning out a freezer. Similarly, the introvert must pull themselves back together following this interval of extroversion requiring time and rebuilding. The transitional state of the bear in this new image explores that moment of transition. The second image is part of a series exploring how US cultural preferences for extroversion are...

Spectroscopy

By Suits Artist Group on Oct 6, 2012

It didn’t go off without a hitch, but our tight group managed to pull together and overcome the obstacles in our way. The end result? A solid performance that 50+ unsuspecting Faire-goers of all ages got to experience, each leaving with their own unique reaction to what we created. One nervous participant, unaware of what to expect, was affected so greatly by the atmosphere of our performance that he asked, with a scared crack in his voice, to leave in the middle of it. Suits is the collaborative effort of Sculpture and Expanded Practices MFA candidates, Basil Masri Zada and Kathleen Williams, and Photography and Integrated Media MFA candidate, Carlos Pacheco. A Syrian Fulbright recipient, an Ohio-based mixed media artist, and an Arizona-born photographer- Masri Zada, Williams, and Pacheco utilize their collective and varied experiences to create conceptually-based, interactive...

HERE/THERE

By Jena Seiler on Oct 5, 2012

The work displayed in my thesis exhibition was the product of an investigation into the convoluted relationship between conceptual space and images, and the delineation of geography and borders through the bracketing of the image’s frame. Questioning conceptual and physical space, the work challenged notions of “here and there” and pulled at underlying global relations and histories.
