Refuge - Nothing is Everything

Exhibition | Jan. 18 to Feb. 22 
Gallery Talk | Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 3:30 PM | Reception to follow

"Video can be a weapon for change and a tool for repair," Altmann said. "This current body of video art provides the necessary pause, a simulacrum of calm amidst a frantic digital world. These videos invite the viewer to slow down and be absorbed by luxuriant color, captivating textures and elements of rhythm and repetition."

Many of the works take sculptural forms. Various technologies like pro-grade media players, embedded raspberry pi computers, 4K or HD displays, obsolete CRT monitors and discarded computer screens from the e-waste pile are all imbued with timeless landscapes and ritualistic experiences.

"Refuge - Nothing is Everything" will include a display in the Hammond Hall Art Gallery as well as the media wall at Conlon Hall, 316 Highland Ave.

Dave Fisher
On Copper Wings

Video Exhibition | Feb. 23 to Apr. 17 
Wall Talk | Wednesday, Mar. 29 at 3:30 PM

On Copper Wings is a film made by insects. No individual insects are listed in association with it - it is thought that hundreds of millions of insects worked on this production. The movie tells the story of the insect creation myth, which involves the insect development of science and technology, insects time traveling to 450 million years ago to rescue the early proto-insects from the Ordovician-Silurian extinction event, and genetically modifying them to be more competitive.

Dave Fischer is an artist from Providence, Rhode Island. He creates videos using a combination of algorithmicly processed video, still photographs, and pure geometry. He writes all his own software for manipulating and editing video, and maintains a cluster of high-end late-90's servers for running the batch-mode computations.
