Featured Artist: Scott Pagano
As filmmaker, motion designer, and spatial reconstructionist, Scott Pagano creates moving image content utilizing shards of architecture, disfunction, and futurism. With influences ranging from minimal painting to cinema, his work offers a re-envisioned perspective on the graphic stratas that saturate our visual perception. His meticulously constructed abstract artworks push the boundaries of audio-visual composition and process using a dynamic mix of cinematographic and synthetic imagery.

Featured Artist: Lars Arrhenius
Lars Arrhenius is an artist and studied at the Royal Academy in Stockholm and Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. He shows his work internationally regularly as New York, London, Berlin, Paris, Tokyo and Stockholm.Arrhenius films, all co-directed with Johannes Montzing, have been showed at museums, art galleries, on television and at several film festivals. Arrhenius uses his paintings and animations to tell short stories of life's small incidents. He renders visible man's existential conditions in the big city, illustrating how the peculiar logic of chance can have a crucial impact on life.

Featured Artist: Scott Hutchison
Scott Hutchison's animations combine traditional painting and drawing techniques with digital technology to create animated portraits, which are displayed on small LCD panels, or projected, large-scale. Dozens of individual stills portray his face, changing only slightly from one image to the next. When the images are unified digitally, an animation is created.

Featured Artist: Jeremy Haik
Jeremy Haik is a multi media artist who has displayed at the Warehouse Gallery, The Source Theater, and the Transformer Gallery. From his artist statement:


"My most recent body of work is an examination of the inherent limitations of sensory perception on which the experiences of thoughts and recollections are predicated. The amount of information that is made available to the individual through digitized modes of communication is in direct conflict with the amount of information that can be fully absorbed through the physical constraints of the senses, and this paradox is of particular interest to me."


Musical Performance by Lulu Fall

Lulu Fall is anything but ordinary. Known for her warm, rich, and colorful sound, Lulu continues to captivate her audiences. A background in musical theatre, Lulu attended the esteemed Duke Ellington School of the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, where she studies with musical theatre experts like Vera M. Katz, Mike Malone, and Anthony Booker. Born into a West African family, Lulu has always been surrounded by music, whether it was Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, or Senegalese artist Youssou N’Dour. With a degree in Jazz Studies, Lulu attended Michigan State University. Through this prestigious university, Lulu has had the opportunity to participate in Generations 2006—a biannual jazz workshop held in Frauenfeld, Switzerland. There, she studied with pianist and composer Cedar Walton, drummer Lewis Nash, alto saxophonist Brad Leali, and many others. Lulu has also performed with Jon Hendricks, Kevin Mahogany, Derrick Gardner, and Adrian Mears, to name a few. Among the many places Ms. Fall has performed, some highlights include the Winter Music Conference in Miami, FL, in which she performed one of her original songs, “Obsession: I’m on Fire,” Blues Alley in Washington, DC, and Langnau Jazz Nights Festival, in Switzerland. Though Lulu has a strong background in Jazz, she has been expanding her horizons and began composing and writing originals in the Soul and Alternative genre.


Musical Performance by VJ Poppins (Renee Shaw)

Renee Shaw, AKA Vj Poppins, is a video installation and live video performance artist. As a video performer, Vj Poppins responds to an audible beat embracing the phenomenon of synaesthesia. Drawing from a large archive of footage, Vj Poppins manipulates video output through live, spontaneous editing. Like a DJ, she scratches through multiple layers of moving images searching for that perfect mix. The visuals have no hierarchy-there is no beginning, middle or end. Vj Poppins constantly rummages for visual juxtapositions that create non-linear narratives.
