Cassandra Hooper, of Croton on Hudson, NY, joined us for an artist residency over the week of November 14th focusing on works of print media. An professor in printmaking and art of the book at SUNY Purchase, Cassandra’s practice involves watching the world carefully, recording flashes and near misses that express the ever-present tug-of-war between public and private self, individual and society, human and nature. She makes images that aim to simultaneously reveal a crucial moment of defenselessness while admitting the impossibility of denying our own fragility. Her pictures depict a space of time laden and reflexive, playing with the tension between the emotional landscape and the slow unraveling of the narrative. These dramas play out in scenes constructed of the detritus of suburban female experience—the awkwardly defiant posture of a child, the outcast chair, overgrown gardens, domestic spaces of bygone eras, drawing on experience of performing rituals of vulnerability as a child, a mother, and the nebulous space between those roles.

Over the course of her residency Cassandra focused on a series of laser etched wood block prints and a series of photo polymer plate prints. IEA Co-Director Joseph Scheer and Aodi Liang worked extensively with Cassandra with all of the various processes in translating Cassandra’s photo compositions from digital files to physical prints through use of the Epilog laser cutter, WLS polymer plate maker, Takach etching press, and the Stienmesse and Stolberg flatbed offset press. A large series of work was produced in multiple editions for future shows and exhibitions.

Early One Morning, a solo exhibition by IEA artist Roberley Bell will be opening on September 9th, 2016, at the BT&C Gallery in Buffalo, NY. Early One Morning will include both sculpture and photographic work by Bell, who is best known for her sculptural and installation work that creates a dialogue between our interior and exterior worlds, as well as nature and its synthetic likeness. Included in the show are print works Bell produced during her residency in June, 2016, of her documentation of towels hung out to dry in various locations in Istanbul, Turkey; a common sight on the city’s streets which Bell uses almost as a color study of an otherwise mundane city color pallet.

Early One Morning runs from September 9th to October 22nd, with an opening event on September 9th from 6:00 to 9:00pm.

Kyle Marler, a member of the artist collective FLATSITTER out of Buffalo, NY, joined us over the week of June 27th for an artist residency in our time media program. Kyle is the artistic director of FLATSITTER, an interdisciplinary collaboration that incorporates video, software programming, performance and installation. FLATSITTER’s artistic works nurture a perception of society, community and environment as interlocking parts of a creative experience and are exhibited in an array of formats, such as ephemeral web collections, live performances, site-specific installations, and live virtual reality experiences utilizing the Oculus Rift. FLATSITTER has exhibited work in the 2015 and 2016 Ann Arbor Film Festival, the Everson Museum of Art, and Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center, among other venues.

During his time at the IEA, Kyle split his time between recording and processing new sound work and continuing research on Oculus Rift projects. On the sound end of his project, Kyle produced sound pieces with his guitar and amps and the Doupfer and layered these recordings back onto themselves to create deeply layered audio works. With the Oculus Rift, Kyle spent time in the video studio corking with our equipment to process new recordings and offered us a chance to try out a VR meditation piece he brought with him. A piece affecting nearly all of the senses, this meditation tracks the viewer’s head movements and changes the image and sound to reflect what direction the viewer is looking at in the piece.

Below are some images from Kyle’s residency.

Experimenting with layout for prints and books

The IEA welcomed Joan Logue of New York, NY, for a week long residency focused on Video Portrait series. Joan, who essentially created the concept of video portraits in 1971, has traveled worldwide creating video portraits of individuals of all walks of life that have been displayed in installations, what she calls video portrait galleries, nationally and internationally. Joan subjects have included John Cage, Joan Mitchell, Noam Chompsky, Rosa Parks, Cesar Chavez, to name a few.

For her residency, Joan focused on translating her video portraits into printed form. To be displayed along with her video work and for sale as artist prints, Joan selected stills from her video portrait archives and laid them out in a format to show the progression of time in a static form. There are plans in the future to create an artist’s book based off of this print series.

Below are images from Joan’s residency:
