Sam Friedman

“American artist Sam Friedman has been producing art in Brooklyn, New York, for the last decade. Tending to reflect the natural world, his work is simultaneously loose and precise. Friedman moves between representational and abstract depictions with seeming ease and spontaneity. His earliest “beach paintings”, completed in 2007, originated from his experience of walking towards the sunset during an oncoming storm. This personal encounter of induced visual clarity prompted in the artist’s mind the precise image for a fully formed painting that incorporated the language he had been developing in his earlier abstract work. This focus has occupied the most of his explorations then, resulting in a body of work that continuously breakdown and rebuild a natural landscape” Nuartlink Gallery

“The Sliced Pixel technique originated from some experiments in Adobe Illustrator mid 2009. This project is all about simplicity, only including what’s absolutly necessary, yet preserving as much detail as possible.”

“With this technique I used the most basic elements in todays graphic design; the pixel. The pixels were sliced in half, and with the sliced pixels I created numerous animal heads. Up-close all you see is triangles, but when you look from a distance, the big picture becomes clear”

“The Sliced Pixel Technique isn’t a ‘one-button’ effect, although there’s some software available that tries to mimic the effect, the original Sliced Pixel images are made in (Adobe) Illustrator using a grid. Every triangle has been colored one by one”

Henrik Aarrestad Uldalen

“is a self-taught artist whose creative production revolves around classic figurative painting, presented in a contemporary manner. The atmosphere in his subject matter is often depict in a limbo or dream-like state. Despite his realistic approach, photographic accuracy is not what he seeks to achieve”

Valerie Hegarty

“For Valerie Hegarty, the joy of her work lies in its destruction rather than its making. Centring her practice on the politics of the American myth, Hegarty’s canvases and sculptures replicate emblems of frontier ethos – colonial furniture, antique dishware, and heroic paintings of landscapes and national figures only to demolish them by devices associated with their historical significance” Saatchi Profile

Terry Barentsen

“I’m Terry, a maker of things who lives in San Francisco. I have a cat named Margot who likes to eats bananas. I live in a old apartment with cold hard wood floors and long hallways. When I’m not riding my bike, I’m shooting photos, making videos, and contributing to a few blogs for the world to enjoy. Shoot me a quick message if you need a hand with anything.”

“My work often evokes biological processes of replication while also engaging with notions of self-representation in an era of instant, endlessly generative (re)production technologies. It perhaps best understood as a deeply psychological response to contemporary notions of being (in the existentialist sense)” J. K.

“The paper cut sculptures explore the probable and magical transformation of the flat sheet of paper into figures that expand into the space surrounding them. The negative and absent 2 dimensional space left by the cut, points out the contrast to the 3 dimensional reality it creates, even though the figures still stick to their origin without the possibility of escaping. In that sense there is also an aspect of something tragic in many of the cuts.”A. Statement

“It is probably the most common and consumed media used for carrying information today. This is why we rarely notice the actual materiality of the A4 paper”

 

Starfield is an installation where a swing is used to create a large interactive starry sky.

With a Kinect installed behind the swing and a video projector, the software creates a galaxy of stars in which the user wanders with the rhythm of his swing.

Created with openFrameworks, the application allows to configure almost any type of swing.

With anaglyph glasses, a 3D mode gives an even more immerse experience.
