Artist presentations followed by public Q&A

Elizabeth Buschmann
Elizabeth's interdisciplinary approach carries a broad spectrum of influences that require her to operate within a theoretical rationale. Through her process she tests the effects of media on individual subjects and presents them in site-specific contexts. The intent is to provide discussion by connecting disparate histories through processes of direct and indirect engagement. She is interested in articulation of self, required both of herself and of her subjects in the process of creating a narrative experience.

Isla Hansen
Isla's work reenacts forms of popular media, play, and systems of production, recreating ways in which bodies connect to technologies in the world around us. Her work sets in motion new and sometimes crude means of image-making in order to break down or convolute processes of technological mediation. Recently, Isla has focused on the ways in which camera and robotic systems in the gaming, medicine, food, and sports industries have developed by tracking and positioning the human body as analogue. The absurd systems reinterpret and complicate the relationship between the human body and technological progress.

Jaewook Lee
Jae is an artist, writer, amateur scientist, semi-philosopher, and sometime curator. His works reflect and speculate deeply on the human mind and something-other-than-human as he considers himself an operant among all other humans and non-human operants on the Earth. He explores the relationship between things themselves and the way that our mind projects meaning onto things. He takes objects back into question, revealing their irreducible qualities beyond our comprehension. Borrowing from Bruno Latour, his practice tuns into the idea of "Gaia" - our relationship with other things on Terra - often presenting man-made objects, natural objects, scientific expriments, and poems together.
