John Tronsor
http://johntronsor.com/home.html

John Tronsor is an artist living and working in Pittsburgh who is interested in ideas concerning representational instability, processes of cognition and models of ontology. This is expressed in the phenomenal and conceptual properties immanent to the conjunction of two way mirror and digital video projection as seen in his recent installations at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, the University of Pittsburgh and at the Carrie Furnaces as part of Alloy Pittsburgh. He received an MFA from the University of California, Davis (2013), a Post­Baccalaureate certificate in Studio Arts` from Brandeis University (2009) and a BA in Studio Arts from the University of Pittsburgh (2008).

Lori Hepner is an American interdisciplinary artist working primarily in conceptually based photography, LED device artworks, and social media art. E xcursionary Auras, in Situ, her current project, creates experimental landscapes surrounding personal landscape, memory, and climate change in the Arctic. A recent body of work, S tatus S ymbols, i s a series of portraits that are studies of identity in the digital age of social media. The portraits focus on visualizing text­based tweets into abstracted visual portraits by using the on/off signature of the computer’s native language, binary code. Lori’s work has been featured in Time Magazine’s L ightbox b log, UK­based N ext Level Magazine, and in Wired Magazine and has been exhibited in places such as the Houston Center for Photography, the Carnegie Museum of Art.
These artists will share a range motives and processes from digital media, installation art, painting, robotics and performance. This is an opportunity open to the public to discover parallels and expansions of concepts within the arts and making.

Lectures run 6:30-8:30pm on the 3rd Sunday of every month, starting June-December 2016.
