Yu-Chin Tseng (Taiwan)

Mr. Tseng (Taiwan) creates pieces in film and video, as well as in fiction and poetry. His work explores feelings of isolation and of being invisible in an unknown world and has been included in numerous festivals throughout Taiwan and Asia, winning several important awards. In 2007 he was selected to represent Taiwan in Documenta 12 in Kassel, Germany. He has also created stage designs for several theater companies, and his design for the Taitung Theater Group’s production of Our Snake received Taiwan’s prestigious Golden Harvest Award.

Nina Sobell (U.S.A.)

Sobell (USA) pioneered the use of video, computers, and interactivity in art, as well as performance on the Web. Since 1969, when she first used video to document participants' undirected interactions with her sculptures, she investigates the extent to which video enables her to manipulate the relation between time and space, and to create a vortex for human experience, in which the mediated event coincides with public experience, memory, and relationships.

Jean Shin (U.S.A./Korea)

Jean (USA/Korea) creates elaborate sculptures and site-specific installations that suggest imaginary communities through the use of accumulated cast-offs. Mary Ceruti writes, "Jean Shin uses discarded material (the excess, the forgotten, the no longer useful) in works that operate between abstraction and representation. Made from the remnants of contemporary urban life, Shin's sculptures form a sort of visual history and a social mapping."

Mafalda Santos (Portugal)

Mafalda Santos (Portugal). Organizational schemes, networks, interconnection and principles of scale and composition are determinant in Mafalda’s work. Expanded drawings on murals or ground works cull their information from computer interface, books and archives to create a simplified imagery that reflects “a moment/place in a mental or social structure of relations.” The artist also considers that they offer a comment on the specific context for which the work was produced.

Rashaad Newsome (U.S.A.)

Rashaad Newsome (USA). Rashaad’s videos, performances, sculptures, and photographs interrogate notions of cultural/ social signifiers as well as how they are formed. They also analyze the complexity of the desire for power and acceptance that is formative for those who are placed in a subaltern position. As Rashaad says “I feel that a large part of the process of identification, for one placed in this position, is folded into everyday life. I use things I see in everyday life in order to decipher this complex psychic structure”.

Kuba Bakowski (Poland)

Kuba Bakowski (Poland). Themes of overcoming gravitation and the exploration of physical limitations of one's body mark Kuba’s diverse body of work. As he investigates the confrontation between the real world and the artificial world generated by digital media, his approach is part utopian, part ironic, and is tinged with a perverse sense of humor.

dorkbot NYC – February 2007

The 28098th dorkbot-nyc meeting featured: free103point9, 31 Down and Brad Borevitz

Santeri Tuori with Pieranna Cavalchini

Wu Ta-Kun (Taiwan)

Wu Ta-Kun (Taiwan) This Taiwanese artist creates videos and sound installations that attempt to convey physicality and sensation.

Yumiko Furukawa (Japan)

Yumiko Furukawa (Japan) Using words and images derived from literature, Yumiko creates unique video and sculpture installations and performances, which serve as a bridge between literature and visual arts.

Santeri Tuori (Finland)

Santeri Tuori (Finland) As a filmmaker, video artist and photographer whose main interest lies in the exploration of portrait identity and its construction, Santeri’s work is centered on the relationships between portraiture, photographs and moving images.

Nayda Collazo-Llorens (United States)

Nayda Collazo-Llorens (United States) Nayda’s work in multiple media deals with issues of communication, accumulation and displacement. A combination of text, marks, objects, images, gestures or sounds are often structured in a nonlinear manner. The work invites the viewer to reflect on the complexities of mind, language and the fragmented nature of our lives through a process of perceiving and understanding what is inside and around us.

Trine Nedreaas (Norway)

Trine Nedreaas (Norway) Primarily a video artist, Trine’s works portrays people who are unknown but extraordinary and ambitious individuals. She focuses on their talent, aspirations and on their often unachieved desires and distant life goals. Recent videos feature individuals performing their speciality in a very particular way and setting. The use of humor to strengthen a sense of unease and lack of fulfillment is characteristic of Trine’s approach. In the artist’s words, “I make films about wanting to be wanted”.

Wang Ya-Hui (Taiwan)

Wang Ya-Hui (Taiwan) Wang,Ya-hui is primarily a video and video installation artist. Her work is driven by the exploration of human consciousness and examines how hidden or conscious changes of “being” are triggered through illusion and imagination. Her installations often make apparent shifts of perception and the passage of one visible reality to another.

Mayumi Nakazaki (The Netherlands)

Mayumi Nakazaki (The Netherlands) Mayumi refers to herself as a product of “Japanese-style Westernization”. She is interested in the notion of the “self that exists and interplays in between parallels”. Her practice is a balance between creating fiction out of reality and trying to elevate reality to the rank of narrative. She focuses on sociological and ethnological issues with subjects that deal with disguise, uniformity, identity, gender and more recently with behavioural and conversational patterns between people.

Yuki Okumura (Japan)

Yuki Okumura (Japan) Artist, writer and curator, Yuki Okumura probes the concept of identity and what makes the human “mind” and “self” unique. More recently, his art practice has expanded the realm of body art through the creation of discrete and precious works constructed from fingernails and saliva. Clearly intended to provoke, they retain a “trace of self” and exploit the uneasy tension between animate and inanimate. Another focus of investigation for Yuki is the development of connections between the banality of every day life with quantum theories, supernova explosions and the sublime.

Simo Alitalo (Finland)

Simo Alitalo (Finland) Simo Alitalo studied philosophy and musicology at the University in Turku, Finland. He is currently working on his doctoral dissertation at the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki. As a sound artist and a radio producer, he develops experimental sound environments and narrative radioproductions that increase awareness of our surrounding soundscapes and their significance in our everyday existence.

Leesa and Nicole Abahuni (U.S.A)

Leesa and Nicole Abahuni (U.S.A) Leesa and Nicole Abahuni are artists and twins from New York who collaborate on the investigation of the senses and the exploration of the interrelationships between the visual, aural, and tactile realms.

Bundith Phunsombatlert (Thailand)

Bundith Phunsombatlert (Thailand) In recent years Mr. Phumsombatlert has used printmaking processes in developing three-dimensional objects which are included in mixed media installations. Social issues and a critical awareness of our consumerist society are a dominant feature in his work.

Miguel Palma (Portugal)

Miguel Palma (Portugal). Palma conducts the realization of his projects as an engineer or project designer. Methodical research and documentation are systematically applied toward the creation of grandiose mechanical devices and gestures that often question critical sociological and ecological issues in present times.

Rie Kawakami (Japan)

Rie Kawakami (Japan) Kawakami works in the tradition of iron and steel welding. Her sculptures attempt to convey notions of life and its cycles, such as the ever-expanding universe, the dividing of a nucleus through an electron microscope, or the repeated cycles of construction and destruction of cities.

Nina Katchadourian (U.S.A.)

Nina Katchadourian (U.S.A.)

Katchadourian’s work exists across a wide variety of media that includes sound, video, sculpture and photography. At Location One, the artist will be working on a new synchronized multi-channel video work called “Zoo” and a number of new sound-based works.

Agnieszka Kalinowska (Poland)

Agnieszka Kalinowska (Poland) Kalinowska’s multifaceted video and installation practice investigates the observation of human behavior in extreme conditions and states of emotional and psychic tension. Her work makes visible the condensation of energy and the hidden potential revealed in such situations, such as fear or hope, in a contemporary social and political context.

Juei-Hsien Hsu (Taiwan)

Ruey-Hsiaan Hsu (Taiwan)

Ruey-Hsiaan Hsu uses mechanical elements as a creative medium. He builds technically complex and conceptually sophisticated “machines” whose motions are activated by the audience and stimulate memories and emotions. Exploring the ways in which sound, images, and new media might be used to extend the language of his work are a new development.

Cliff Evans (U.S.A.)

Cliff Evans (U.S.A.). Bare life: Booth Girl*s and Stormtroopers: Accumulation, 2007A multi-channel photomontage animation that is presented as an object similar to an altar piece or a product display. It is constructed from an LCD screen and personal media players. It functions as a machine to contain, decipher and display images gathered from online sources. It situates itself within a soft-fascism, producing a baroque spectacle that unfolds and repeats. It, perhaps, is a clockwork meant to tell the time in an age of tech-fetish and availability at a glance.

*IMHO* with Douglas Ross

This month’s conversation with Douglas Ross. In his artwork, Ross embraces technology, both low and high with equal affection, in humorous and profoundly evocative ways. From harmonizing with washing machines, refrigerators and air conditioners, to creating an outdoor LED screen that reads realtime library book checkout selections, Ross’s work evinces a dry but poetic wit that is deceptively complex and questions what is is to be human in contemporary technicized world.
