About the artists:
My research, and the genre I explore is based primarily on family, and our memories, as well as the documentation of these relationships. Within the last year of postgraduate study, I am exploring familial behaviours, and whether or not such behaviours are learnt or genetically ingrained into us. I am currently researching and examining the social issues that can be included within close knit families. With this thought, I am exploring my own relationship with my parents, as well as establishing my own identity as an individual – while analysing whether or not I possess certain qualities from both of my parents.
My work explores themes rooted in the philosophies of human experience. I use a range of photographic processes to make work which is often influenced by prose, philosophic writings or narratives. Place, landscape and the ever-changing flux of our interpretation on these plays a big role in my practice.
I am currently researching and making work regarding disability and it’s place in contemporary art.
Simon is an artist working with photography, video and sound sculpture within installation, he has a particular interest in The Sublime and The Uncanny often revisiting over decades, small areas of Landscape that are reimagined to events beyond their borders. His current research is investigating Art made out of a response to conflict and turmoil. ‘Disquiet’ is an installation video piece that investigates anxiety as an internal response to sound and image of a small area of woodland relating it to wider events
As an artist, my practice is very heavily influenced by my conceptual research into themes such as memory, human experience and the passing of time. Mainly exploring the ways in which these themes are perceived to the individual person and as a wider sociological way of life.
Lucie Crewdson is a photographer working with themes that include the relationship between fashion and fine art, performance, surrealism and the everyday.
My work is photographic medicine. Using photography to means of improving lives. Using a wide range of skills and techniques to create scenes to accomplish the goal.
I’m writing and filming a dramatic monologue about Jon, a carpenter who talks about the craft of carpentry, whilst also discussing a turn of events – “Missed opportunities, time going by and before you know it you’re about to die… Still, there is always tomorrow.”
My main passion is experimental documentary cinema and projection. My work discusses temporality as well as location, using my personal experiences to reflect on activist themes as well as personal emotions. Much of my current masters work seeks to explore my place as an individual within an urban landscape, through the sensory lens of my autism spectrum disorder.
As an artist working with photography, I have found that the strengths of my interest lie not with taking photographs, but with everything that happens before (or after) a photograph is taken. My recent work has taken the medium of photography and stripped it back to its core, light on a surface. Through exploring traditional photographic practices and working with archival footage I have been creating a piece of work that challenges both the medium of photography, and also our relationship with place and space.
My work is an exploration into projection and performance combined, I have a background in surrealist and conventional filmmaking. I’m often attracted to juxtapositions within art and society and translate that into my work
As a filmmaker, my passion is to create engaging stories and moving image work about place and belonging. I’m particularly interested in urban environments in transition and change, and how cultural memory is then brought into focus.
Fex is an artist filmmaker whose work focuses on visual story telling with themes surrounding memory, identity, representation and emotion. You can find more of her work…. https://www.youtube.com/user/ifueko100/videos?view_as=subscriber
Marilyn Roxie is a video artist and experimental photographer exploring androgyny, male submission, queer subculture, and the relationship of found image to creative authorship.
My body of work concentrates on a fusion of both photographic stills and Haute Couture garments, establishing themes such as the future. My stills are directed towards fashion portraiture, which often contain narratives. Through the making process, there are two main distinguished moods, which are dominant and continually juxtapose each other to create a constant and stable interaction of differences. This oxymoron captures a melancholic emotion infused with aspects of romance, which engages a battle between darkness and beauty.
Modesta is a filmmaker working with themes that include memories, sound and bilingualism. “Working with film and sound has given me a chance to explore themes that have been important to me as a creator: language and memories. As a foreigner, the idea of learning a new language has opened a spectrum of artistic possibilities for me which I intended to explore further.”
I am working on the high moorland of the Peak District at the place where 3 counties meet. My pictures look at the “empty” space and the weather as well as the careless and planned abuse of a precious, ancient landscape.

Paula Levine – “Mirror, Mirror”
Shot in Venice California at Muscle Beach, this is a short vignette about viewing and being viewed.
Eden Mitsenmacher – “Couldn’t Dream Anywhere”
It seems our consciousness is fascinated by our own hands.
It makes sense, for aren’t they a symbol of our agency? That endlessly fragile agency, the sense of which is mostly constructed, almost dreamt up. Yet we’re searching for it relentlessly.
Hurtling through space like that, is restlessness any wonder?

a human individual utilizes a machine to express their relationship to earth and her entities
Ceven Knowles – “aqua regia”
A web cam artist contemplates his projected image over the internet to the vaporwave soundtrack of the Computer Afterlife album by Infinity Frequencies while simultaneously broadcasting to his public.

ALL FALLS DOWN presents a digital hell-loop centering around the idea of the trans antagonist coming to terms with the ideas of home, anxiety, intimacy, our inevitable death, longing, and the conversation between obsolete and current technologies.
Danica Uskert – “cocaine superstar/pop that box”
A multi-layered shibari-striptease performance art music video, heavy on the kink.
Rocket Ear – “Don’t Fuck With England”
A love story of words, whips, fries, and chips.
Marta Strazicic – “Masculine Fragility”
A man oppressed by social norms rethinks his masculinity in the heart of the oasis, finally breaking through his fragility.
Meehaun Glasper-Wade – “I Am”
This is a timeline documenting emotions and changes I have experienced thus far throughout my medical and spiritual transition from female to male.

Revised and dubbed 2007. With a dedication to kink party people !i!i!
Charles Lum and Todd Verow – “BLOW JOB 2017”
“BLOW JOB 2017” is a remake, update and a deconstructive reimagining of Andy Warhol’s most famous 1964 short film “Blow Job.”
Rick Clarke – “THE SYMBOLS WILT”
…This confusion, this dark backwards, this failure in the duty of mothers, this burying of liberty’s putrid corpse is my misinterpretation of the immortal hour and the purity of my love, of my sex and of my fetishes – my fetishes of and for fetishes… the transference of energies after the golden death of the body is the cause of all this… I want to wonder about that, moving between bodies. Not really ‘woman trapped in a man’s body’ and vice-versa, because that’s impossible to know for sure… the people without these powerful energies – i.e. everybody not me and thee – are parasites… For these vermins who inhibit our private world, our over-garden, to have a soul would be a travesty…

My video collage collaboration with Dan Wreck will be appearing in the premiere exhibition at LUDWIG in Berlin, June 17th 2016 – July 23rd 2016. Can’t make it to Germany? You can still watch the video here.
CHAOSTROPHY :artworks inspired by the band Coil
17.06.2016 – 23.07.2016
Anzengruberstr. 3, 12043 Berlin
curated by Ceven Knowles
The music of Coil spanned over twenty-two years with fifteen studio albums, nine live albums, ten compilations, and dozens of Eps and singles, not to mention different aliases, side projects, and other collaborations. Founding members, John Balance (February 16, 1962 – November 13, 2004) and Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson (February 27, 1955 – November 10, 2010) created a rich body of work that came to also include members: Stephen Thrower, Drew McDowell, William Breeze, Thighpaulsandra, Ossian Brown and countless other guest musicians and singers. Their ever-evolving sound and presence became a legacy deeply respected by artists, musicians, and occultists around the world. Rather than a retrospective of the band’s output this exhibition focuses on original visual and audio artworks, photographs, texts, performances and personal reflections as a tribute.
This serves as the opening exhibition at LUDWIG a new gallery, small event venue, culture house, and bar in Berlin Neukölln spread over three large rooms covering 114 square meters. Over the weeks of the exhibition online video documentaries, live streaming events and other materials giving portraits the artists involved and their contributions will be released online for those who cannot be in Berlin can experience as well.

Music Video Showing at Re/Action Exhibition at SF State, 4/21, 2016
My music video for Neurotic Wreck – “Funeral of Roses” will be on display in the Cesar Chavez Student Center Art Gallery exhibition Re/Action, opening 4/21 from 5pm-8pm. The exhibition was juried by Rebeka Rodriguez from Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
A group exhibition with:
Every cause has an effect and every effect becomes the cause of something else. The artists in this show bring the learning, relationships and experience of their time at SFSU to the work in this exhibition. These undergraduate years have provided space for each artist to be active agents in their own lives and to explore the images and stories that matter to them on their own terms. The glorious result is a show comprised of works that embrace a broad spectrum of human complexity including: self-protection, isolation, private and public spheres of violence, contradictions, love, playfulness and more. Almost 100 works were submitted for consideration; the chosen pieces span drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and video.
