Between Us

By Joey Behrens

A house reduced in size and made fragile, dependent on the two bodies that work together to carry it between them. The interior becomes the exterior as the private negotiations of roommates are acted out publicly through a one-mile walk, up Richland Avenue and Court Street. The house becomes the point of contact, of physical touch and communication, between the two people holding it between them. They hold it by fitting their arms into impressions of those arms—from shoulder to finger tip—cast into the paper skin on either side of the house. A go-pro camera was inserted inside the house to record the walk from the point of view of the object at its center. The audio is a clip from the longer recording that became the main record of the walk and necessary communication between my roommate and I. The image you see is a photograph taken towards the end of the walk.  

Install: Metaphor for something more


Video installation was possible thanks to various pieces of equipment rented from the @lab including the Panasonic AG video camera, an NEC projector, mac mini, and the software resources available at the computer lab facility.  

Brian and Seth


BRIAN AND SETH is a part of a series of short films for my MFA thesis in Directing at Ohio University. The film attempts to depict frustration that comes with pleasure seeking. It is a story of two African-American college students (Brian and Seth), and their pursuits for sex in a predominantly European-American college town. The theme of BRIAN AND SETH can be expressed in the expression that says: “too much haste split a yam.” The film is about patience in the midst of pleasure seeking. It also touches on being of good conduct and respectful enough to not take advantage of others. The story is told using a flashback technique, by both protagonists (Brian and Seth) who meet at their apartment and recount what has just happened. Other two female characters are Judy and Melissa, whom both Brian and Seth engage with. The film was shot on a Canon DSLR HD camera and sound (audio) was...

Delta Zeta Philanthropy 2013


Delta Zeta’s philanthropy is hearing and speech. They support this by donating to Gallaudet University, The Starkey Hearing Foundation, as well as the House Research Institute. They also help raise money to send children to The Painted Turtle camp, in California. Every year Delta Zeta holds a turtle tug event, where teams of five are able to sign up and play tug of war over a pit of jello. It is a messy, yet exciting way to raise money for a cause that these women support.

Zachary, a follow soldier and friend, tells his story of being deployed to Afghanistan. I paired Zachary’s narration with footage of vacant, transient seating areas. The areas are to provide a sense of the seclude homecoming for the soldier.  

Conveyor Screen

By Jacob Koestler

The screens meet each other at a corner, freestanding at the center of an otherwise dark room. The emitted off-air static begins to flash, stretch, push and pull. From your viewpoint, it is not clear whether the forces are coming from within the screen or generated by your own presence.  

Interviews for Creative Research


Numerous interviews were conducted using the H4 Next Recorder in preparation for a creative research trip to the Angola Prison Rodeo in Louisiana. The controversial event supports themes consistent in my work. What appears to be a spectacle of celebration, complete with candied apples and greasy carnival fare, is in fact an extremely complex and challenging occasion. This research trip will investigate a disposed community and their realities beneath this sugary surface. Due to the fact that no cameras, phones, or recording devices of any kind were allowed within the prison grounds, I’ve included on of the sketches completed on-site.  

The Deep


I am building an introverted ecosystem, where creatures feed on darkness through a process of reverse photosynthesis. I am weaving a food-web of fear. The Deep is an ongoing catalog of unknown creatures. It offers speculative portraits of some of the x million undiscovered species lurking in the deepest crevices of the ocean floor. The Mariana trench is the uncanniest of uncanny valleys: here, the human submarine pilot points her searchlight into the pristine darkness and catches in the beam a fish with strangely human eyes.        

Bronze Constellation (as a part of "Lost Wax" as a part of "Yoidles! Productions American Since 1980")

By Broooks WEnzel

Lost Wax project appeared as an integral part of my MFA thesis show in Trisolini. Lost Wax spins out of creating replica crayons out of actual bronze, then placing them secretly in crayon packs in stores around the world as i travel (see: http://yoidles.com/home/lost-wax/). As a part of Lost Wax, a free Android application was developed to allow viewers to compare the constellation created as the bronze crayons are scattered about the globe. Thanks in large to NATHAN BERGER, the AESTHETICS TECHNOLOGY LAB, and RAY PHOENIX for assisting in making this application become a reality. This application forks from the Google Skymap application, that allows viewers to view the locations of stars and constellations in the sky wherever they point their Android devices. The Bronze Constellation app retains the star and constellation data, however it makes a few changes. Bronze Constellation also...
