DESCRIPTION

Christopher Meerdo's work is located in the space between the absence and revealing of memory, its authenticity confirmed or denied through the use of photography, sculpture, and moving images.

Rebecca Beachy explores human processing, material intimacy and traumatic affect in the context of an ambivalent relationship with nature through sculpture and installation.

Mike Gibisser uses the poetics of the moving image while drawing on
scientific and cultural phenomena to investigate the nuance and
instability of time, memory, and affect.

Joe Pankowski has developed an ever-expanding daydream in countless
drawings, and has brought these to life using stop-motion animation and
out-dated technology to emphasize the mechanical absurdness found in his sketchbooks.
