Leere Mitte |
(Stardust 2) | Jeremy Bernstein | 2007 | 15:59 min.
  I was invited to Prague in early 2006 to give a workshop and do a performance. I repeated the performance of "pluck click whine bass lines" and added this piece (made new for the ocassion). This is the third installment of the ideas I've been exploring with regard to granulating time and video, and parallel processing of sound and image using "equivalent" processes.

Jeremy Bernstein's sonic and visual artwork has at its root a deep concern for our experience of time and surroundings. In his work, concrete reality is extracted from any functional context, and carefully re-composed into assembled abstractions, composite reality. Whether working with sound or visual imagery, Bernstein approaches his work through the technical process
of digital sampling, using fragments of found materials (sound, video, still imagery or text) to form complex multi-layered structures. His work proposes a noisy, nervous, pluralistic world in which distorted traces of the familiar stray from the path of the anticipated, in a unique vision of modern beauty.

| Chen Yerushalmi | 2008 | 2:40 min.
  As human beings, the sight of another person’s naked form may incite in us primal feelings and sensations. “Body/Mirror” is a video that aims to investigate the power of the human body as a representational tool. Through the use of a simple video effect, my naked body becomes the raw material of a provocative virtual manipulation – distorting the natural shape of my figure, and producing an array of highly realistic yet implausible, illusionary images. While the mechanics of the video are quite transparent, the visuals remain captivating and effective. They are both beautiful and violent – testifying to the notion that our relationship to the human form is of a dichotomist nature.

Chen Yerushalmi is a New York based artist specializing in video art. Her work to date has focused on exploring the notion of identity and perception in contemporary society. Yerushalmi attended the School of Visual Arts in New York, graduating in 2007 at the top of her class and was the recipient of the Rhodes Family Award for achievement in Fine Arts. In 2007 she also received the Alumni Scholarship Award. During her school years, her works were selected for several of SVA's sponsored exhibitions. In addition, she was also among 20 students selected by Jerry Saltz for the first Annual SVA Fine Arts Catalogue.

Light Field II | Richard Garet | 2008 | 14:33 min.
  The piece has pre-meditated rules of action and scored-descriptive-formular that triggers the functions of the piece indicating that the work alone is everything -- the svore, performance, instriment, and medium in itself. The DVD incarnation od the piece embodies it being score/performance/instrument/medium at the same time.

Soundtrack by Wolfgang v. Stürmner (WvS) Richard Garet is a sound artist, a video artist, and a painter. he is interested in the phenomena found and produced in aural and visual time-based media, in nature’s processes, and human beings' relationship with both artificial and natural environments. garet explores the it-referential, communicational, and sensory characteristics of the various media he utilizes. additionally, he focuses on the investigation of aural and visual spatial-contexts, relational structures, process, materiality, and form. even though garet’s work suits the standard gallery setting, many of his other activities as an artist explore the various practices of experimental sound and video performance. all of these modes are additional ways in which garet’s work exposes the audience to visual and physical acoustic sensory perception.
The Spill | Stephanie Lempert | 2008 | 2:38 min.
  The Spill is a piece that centers around the spontaneity of creation. The video captures the formation of a brief “community” created by a common spill. By concentrating on this subtle moment, the otherwise mundane spill takes on a life of it’s own.

Stephanie Lempert’s work concentrates on various systems of communication, both literal and invented. Lempert uses a wide variety of media including sculpture, photography and video. By focusing viewers on small moments, they discover that all is not as it appears at first glance. Often using humor, Lempert attempts to stimulate the viewer to go beyond what they recognize as reality by immersing them in a created environment.

Lempert is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. Her work has been exhibited and collected domestically and internationally at establishments such as A.I.R. Gallery, Socrates Sculpture Park, HVCCA, The Armory Show, Art Basel Miami, Loop Art Fair, Lmak Projects, Stella Art Gallery, The Moscow World Fine Art Fair, and The 2006 New York Video Festival.

Lempert is represented by the Claire Oliver Gallery in New York.
