Jenn Grossman is a sound/experiential media artist concerned with the psycho-spatial possibilities of time-based media, exploring displaced realities, staged synchronicity, cyclical time, collective memory, embodiment/disembodiment, perceptual affect, and transcendent experience. She treats sensory media as a portal into the surreal, subconscious, and otherworldly; through its displacement into everyday settings, objects, and spaces. Her work has taken the form of modular sound sculptures/installations, multichannel sound works, light/projection events, ambient music/soundscapes, video, and public interventions.
Jeff Kolar is an independent sound and media artist, composer, and curator. He is the Founder and Artistic Director of Radius, an experimental radio broadcast platform established in 2010. His work, described as “speaker-shredding” (Half Letter Press), “wonderfully strange” (John Corbett), and “characteristically curious” (Marc Weidenbaum), activates sound in unconventional, temporary, and ephemeral ways using appropriation and remix as a critical practice. His solo and collaborative projects, installations, and public performances often investigate the mundane sonic nuances of everyday electronic devices.
Jonathan Sims is a New York City based visual artist who originally hails from Texas. His visual arts practice is characterized by brightly colored geometric abstractions and simple, minimalist symbology that evokes language and universal, ancient design.
Jonathan began his practice with painting, but has since moved into digital animation, sculpture and projection installations, print, long exposure photography and graphic design. His work is intended to elicit a sense of familiarity and artistic intent in viewers, but his compositions remain stubbornly non-objective, and his fictional “glyph” languages refuse transliteration. A consistent premise underlying his work is based on the idea that a modern human’s relationship with the very ancient past is mirrored in their relationship with the distant future.
Past exhibitions include gallery shows and large scale projection installations in San Antonio, Bushwick, Governor’s Island, and upstate New York.
