Touch the Black is an interactive sound sculpture that deals with the issue of black genocide in America. Touch the Black is a cry for sonic reexamination into the public murders of Philando Castile, Geroge Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.

Residual Vibrations
Dee Hood

Some people believe that conciousness doesn't end with death but continues on in another realm. I'd like to believe that's true. I imagine the slightest perceivable vibration as evidence of our continuing connection.

The Show Must Go On
My Linh Mac

Japanese Oirans are high-class women who sell their beauty, entertainment talents, and even body services from the Edo period. Despite the era gap, the similarities are striking as they are considered entrepreneurs in certain ways for investing money, time, and effort glamorizing themselves.

?(x,y,z,t) on Lorentz Transformation
Reina Suyeon Mun

?(x, y, z, t) is an interactive interface made based on the concept of Lorentz Transformation. The ‘map’ of space-time is controlled by the sliders as positioned on all 4 sides of the interface. The sliders slide and represent the instantaneous reading of space-time of the current observer watching the projected footage.

Timeless Probe: On Einstein's Block Universe
Reina Suyeon Mun

Timeless Probe is an interactive device that embeds the narratives of Einstein’s Block Universe Theory. The design evolved from the reinterpretation of the object pendulum.Time is not a flowing entity. It is just like any other spatial entity. The t-coordinate the observer ends up in is determined by one’s interaction with the direct surrounding.

Mark Purves

Stonebox is a modern medieval device. The object sits between realms where haptic, physical experience are brought to mind by an object platonic in its perfection, ideal in its unpleasantness, and virtual in its existence.

For the forest is an experimental video animation series created by combining site-specific photography and video of the Northeast landscape in the United States. The movement of the water running in small creeks and streams of the forests of rural New York is depicted through the blending of pixels with movement of the color of the seasons reflected in nature.

Mommy's Princess
Durdija Vucinic

"Mommy's princess" is series of work which reflects on some of the most personal and unexpected rejection letters after few rounds of job interviews. Having successful professional music career as very young and switching to waitressing was a part of my identity until it wasn't. Letters are turned into subtitles detaching the narrative and the observer from the the collection of meaning.

Repetition of the Kitchen DW
Deborah Weinreb

The Repetition of the Kitchen has a nod to both Muybridge and his detailing of human dexterity and also to Martha Rosler - Semiotics of the Kitchen 1975, and the unsung recognition of relentless daily food preparation.
