Concrete Walls is pleased to announce &ldquo\;Gentlemen Take Polaroids &\; Play Video Games&rdquo\;\, a two-person exhibition featur ing photography and video by Derric Eady and Steve Childs. In the year 1980 \, Edwin Land inventor of the Polaroid Camera retired\, Atari posted over 2 billion dollars in profit\, and post punk band &ldquo\;Japan&rdquo\; relea sed their fourth hit record. Two artists spawned by the 80&rsquo\;s\, artis ts Derric Eady and Steve Childs explore their unique visions of photography and video this Summer at Concrete Walls. Derric Eady will have on display digital prints\, and a computer generating real time video via video game e ngines and 3D modeling programs. Eady&rsquo\;s work influenced by today&rsq uo\;s gaming cult culture mines the vast and rich territory of virtual envi ronments and their transitory nature. The work is a meditation on detachmen t\, spiritual transformation\, and the search for transcendent beauty. Stev e Childs&rsquo\;s digital prints of mundane objects are mysterious\, yieldi ng the power of light and abstracting the literal. Through the use of decad e old Polaroid processes Childs is able to create visual eye candy by mysti fying images of objects in his daily life. Using a deemed technologically o utdated mode of photography and images of the everyday\, Childs presents a mystery that can only be interpreted though the imagination of the viewer. Derric Eady received his MFA from the University of California\, Irvine in 2005 and BFA in both Photo / New Media &\; Art History in 2002 from Kans as City Art Institute. He has shown at Lowe Gallery in Los Angeles\, The Ar mory Center of the Arts in Pasadena and the Office in Huntington Beach\, CA .
