Emi Nishiwaki cuts short clips of live performances that cannot be recreated (singular characteristics) using video and photography as a means to capture and reproduce them (producible characteristics). She then transforms these images into an installation, so that the audience can experience the 'singular characteristics' at that specific place and time.
The most common themes in the work of Cait Davis are nature, dichotomy and questions about existence. A multidisciplinary artist with a background in film and visual arts, she appreciates artwork that challenges her, making her uneasy while begging further examination. Cait explores these themes through varying techniques, including live-action cinema, animation, sculpture and printmaking, setting her subjects in a range of landscapes, from the darkly ominous to the candy colored. Cait co-owns a small stop-motion animation studio called Springtime Jellyfish and is currently completing her short film, “Stories of the Unconscious.” Not satisfied unless she has absolutely no free time, she is also sculpting imaginary creatures in ceramic, as well as continuing a print series of slugs.
