Time: 4:30 p.m.
Location: Holmes Auditorium

Luftwerk is the creative vision of Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero. For more than 10 years, Luftwerk has created art installations that merge elements of light and video with facets of architecture and design. Their 2010 commission to create a new media exhibit for the centennial celebration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House helped them discover a deeper resonance with architecture and pursue a growing interest in how experiences of space and site are augmented through light and sound.

Their projects blend history and contemporary media with public spaces and landmark structures, opening a new aesthetic conversation. Their work has been exhibited in locations as diverse as MASS MoCA, Cloudgate, JFK Airport, Emirates Palace, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater and Robie House.

Visit the Fosdick-Nelson Gallery website for more information regarding the performances and special events accompanying this four week exhibition, "As the Air Moves Back From You."

Artist team Omar and Tal Golan, under the handle OMTA, will be participating in an artist residency at the Institute for Electronic Arts the week of February 9th. Founded in 2006, OMTA, who have exhibited both nationally and internationally, specializes in the intersection of fine art and technology through highly visual presentations of interactive media. As forerunners in innovative research, OMTA creates artistic displays that encourage viewer participation in order to conduct studies regarding human interaction, digital meditation, and social awareness.
OMTA’s proposed project, entitled Making Love: Poetry in Motion, is a net art installation work which will appropriate real time Tweets about love and compose them into an endless poem using semantic analysis and advanced scientific information algorithms. A camera will detect movement in the space which will trigger random text to float up from the stream and compose a poem, which will be read aloud in different accents and voices with a text-to-speech program, all while displaying the data stream in a flying 3D world portraying the process.
This work will be presented in the Immersive Gallery Space of the Turner Gallery in Harder Hall at 7:00 pm on February 13th and all are invited to attend and provide feedback to the artists of their experience and responses to their work.
More information and OMTA’s work can be found on their website: http://omta.co/

Date: Friday, Feb. 13

Location: The Knight Club, Powell Campus Center
Cost to Attend: $10
Supported By: The Center for Student Involvement and the School of Art and Design

Alfred University student Nick Labate is coordinating a community-wide initiative to produce ceramic bowls and share homemade soup to help support local hunger initiatives. The culmination of his efforts will be a community lunch on Friday, Feb. 13, 2015 as attendees buy or bid on quality bowls filled with delicious soups. Over the next few months, he will be seeking donors of both soups and bowls.

Labate found inspiration in the Empty Bowls Project, an international grassroots hunger movement founded by Lisa Blackburn and John Hartom in Michigan in 1990 and continued by the non-profit organization Imagine/RENDER Group. The idea is simple: potters, students, and other craftspeople hand-make bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal. In exchange for a small cash donation, guests are given a bowl in remembrance of all those who are hungry. The donations from the event will then go to a charity of choice. Labate would like this effort to support local needs, specifically the Food Bank of the Southern Tier. For more information, visit http://www.foodbankst.org.

"This event will not be possible without the help of the willing Alfred community," Labate says. "Not only will we need soups (and other food), but we will need bowls made by the loving hands within the community. For this event, 100 - 200 donated bowls will be needed. Anyone may also donate a bowl as just an auction item, without fear that soup will be placed within pieces of art not intended to be slurped from."
Nick Labate is a sophomore majoring in Art and Design with a minor in education from Cleveland, Ohio. He sees Empty Bowls as a great way to combine the talents surrounding the University’s Art School and the incredible generosity of the greater Alfred community.

Selma is a historical drama film directed by Ava DuVernay.

The film stars British actors David Oyelowo as King. Selma had four Golden Globe Award nominations, including Best Motion Picture - Drama, Best Director, and Best Actor, and won for Best Original Song. It was also nominated for Best Picture and won the Best Original Song at the 87th Academy Awards.

The film is rated PG-13. We have included an on-line family-guide description of content to help families decide whether their child(ren) may attend.
"Violence: Racial tensions are depicted that include intimidation, threats, beatings, whippings, and shootings. Men with clubs attack protestors: some are beaten to death. Tear gas is used to subdue protestors. A character is shot and killed. An explosion at a church kills four young girls. Characters are punched in the face. Groups of protestors are attacked on several occasions. Other moments of non-graphic violence and frightening scenes are portrayed. Sexual Content: Characters listen to the recorded sounds of sexual activity. A woman questions her husband’s fidelity. A couple kisses. Some brief crude content and sexual references are included. Language: The script contains two strong sexual expletives, a crude hand gesture, over two dozen uses of crude language including scatological slang, curses and profanities. Crude ethno-cultural slurs are also heard. Alcohol / Drug Use: A character smokes in at least one scene."

"Variantology" is a research model proposed by Dr. Siegfried Zielinski that aptly describes (albeit not exclusively), the approach of the faculty in Expanded Media to exploring new media. "Variantology" seeks to realign the cross connections between media art, science, technology, experimentalism, and international exchange, in ways that, will allow media experts to place their research in a broader perspective and disciplines that have not yet engaged these discourses will become receptive to media questions.

Featuring work by faculty and staff from the Division of Expanded Media: Peer Bode, Xiaowen Chen, William Contino, Andrew Deutsch, Gerar Edizel, Mark Klingensmith, Barbara Lattanzi, Judy Livingston, Joseph Scheer, Katherine Vajda, Devin Henry, and Alex Williams.

The show will include: video projections, large scale digital prints, painting, digital wood cut and screen prints, multi-channel video installation, graphic design, sonic art installation, handmade books and zines.

Open Reception: ’Terrazza’
- (6:00 PM - 9:00 PM) a solo exhibition of paintings by Stephanie McMahon
March 21 - April 3

Location: The Belfry, 406 Canisteo St., Hornell
Open Reception: Saturday, March 21
Time: 6-9 P.M.
Cost to Attend: Free/Open to the Public

A specific place or experience creates the initial structure for exploration in McMahon’s paintings. From there the painting emerges as she allows for intuitive and contradictory responses to previous layers, creating an active image that fluctuates between deliberate and incidental.

The result is both physical and fleeting, as unexpected and precarious relationships arise between color, shape, and gesture and as they combine through translucent layers. This way of working allows her to extract and distill her observations in the tangible world, while questioning and presenting the possibilities of visual experience and abstraction.

For her show "Terrazza" at The Belfry, McMahon draws from her experience living in the medieval hillside town of Cortona, Italy in an apartment with a rooftop terrace overlooking the Chiana Valley. The terraced landscape, horizon line, fluctuating atmosphere, light quality, and visibility became a daily studied observation.

The simple act of slowing down and noting these subtle or abrupt shifts in a single space over a period of time is realized in a series of expansive paintings that have a deliberate and decisive quality to the interacting layers, challenging one’s sense of time and resolve.

This lecture, sponsored by the Art History Club, will discuss Wood Shop technician Jonas Sebura’s art practice and collaborate work with Alex Gartelman.

"Our collaboration is a navigation of the space between us. We mine the similarities and oppositions which frame our relationship. This inward conversation of the liminal space of relationship is expanded outward to reflect a larger cultural conversation about communication breakdowns, physical contact, and hierarchies. We question and challenge expectations of traditional roles through subtle moments of tenderness and failure."

His CD, titled Ten Years Under the Knife, was released in 2007, along with group videos and an interview. A new Deuce CD is still in production. For two years, Vickers was part of the two-man group The Handsome Public, which toured Iceland and the U.K. in 2008.

22-minute videos, Glue Trap Lust (2000, color) and Son of Eyeball Man (2002, color), More recently, Vickers released on YouTube the experimental horror film, Attack of the Flying Head (2009, color).

Evergreen and Gold
- (6:00 PM - 9:00 PM) an exhibition of new work by Mark Schatz and Andrea Loefke

Date: Friday, April 10
Time: 6-9 P.M.
Location: The Belfry, 406 Canisteo St, Hornell 14843
Cost to Attend: Free

The work of Mark Schatz and Andrea Loefke must be explored in a meandering, searching way. The everyday world is present and recognizable but re-made, new and curious. Shifts in scale and density can alternately engulf the viewer and then draw them into tiny, intimate detail. Cast-off objects find their place amid exquisitely hand-crafted elements. Worlds that are equally haphazard and cultivated are gradually revealed.

Both Mark Schatz and Andrea Loefke are drawn to the tension between order and disorder. For their exhibition Evergreen and Gold, Schatz and Loefke pursue the potential for transformation within ideals of permanence and stability.

My works always explore the structural and organic relation of objective reality, focusing on the relationship between human and nature with a medium of the language, and attempting to humorous interactive pieces. Chinese artists in ancient times used poetry to communicate with and describe the world; I could also use a language character such as text, dialogue, poetry, metalogues, riddle, joke and so on to access an alternative vision of the relationship between human and nature. At first, we are full of imaginary like a child when we meet new things. Perhaps such a visualization of imaginary is in fact the manifestation of an invisible reality, the expression of the real language in heart. In my work, I have attempted to use visual and aural information to record and describe the world, acoustically rendering the transformation of language power.

’Stock Market Valuation Through Data Analysis’
- (12:20 PM - 1:20 PM) Mitch Holbrook wil be presenting a Math Talk in Myers Hall Room 334 on Wednesday April 15 at 12:20 p.m.

The talk will be about how the classic axiom of investing is to buy low and sell high. This is a difficult task as most investors do not have a simple method to determine when a market is under or over valued at a given time.

Through the use of mathematical analysis we are able to create a new index that represents the intrinsic value of the S&P 500. We then show that the intrinsic value index is relatively accurate in determining market bottoms, which investors could use as a signal to enter the market with a larger margin of safety.

Join us for this interesting and educational talk!

’The Moment In-Between’
"What we see before us is just one tiny part of the world. We get into the habit of thinking, this is the world, but that’s not true at all. The real world is in a much darker and deeper place than this, and most of it is occupied by jellyfish and things. We just happen to forget all that. Don’t you agree? Two thirds of the earth’s surface is ocean, and all we can see of it with the naked eye is the surface: the skin. We hardly know anything about what’s beneath the skin."

Paper Moon
April 18 - 22

Set beneath a waxing moon, sheets and fruit float from thin lines, bags hold canted props, and bright color veils marble flesh.

Shujun Jiang - Electronic Integrated Arts
www.shujunjiang.com

Screening: Saturday, April 18
Location: Holmes Auditorium
Time: 7:30-9 P.M.

The theme of this exhibition is about seeing and being seen. My work uses repetition of banal questions to explore the multiple personalities within any individual. The focus on obsessive self-questioning becomes a means of both self-torture and self-exposure in a crowd. For example, the multiple personalities inside me are always in a position to see and be seen; no matter where we are, when we look at our surroundings, they mirror our behaviors and life patterns.

Yuxuan Kong - Electronic Integrated Arts

"Flying in the river, swimming in the air"
In my video and installation work, I always try to stretch space and switch different perspectives to show my feeling and thinking toward the river of life.

"My work is an exploration of the intersection of autobiography, family history and literature through sculptural vignettes. I choose objects from the domestic landscape as the subjects of this work. Objects of the mundane - a houseplant, a book, a common chair - are part of a larger collective memory, they are signifiers of a time and a place, at once familiar but radically different for each person. As groupings of objects in space, these signifiers create stories."

"The forming, shaping and cutting on the potter’s wheel tends to be a discipline in repetition and consistency. There are times when I know what each move will be from start to finish and which tool is required to do the job that my fingers cannot. There are also instances, more often than not, where my working is not this regimented. It is more like a song or dance, structured, but with notes of improvisation. Choices and moves occur throughout the making process in response to the material and how the material responds to my touch. Each pot is created to be a contemplative piece, to exist as both a functional object as well as poetic narrative to convey a sense of time, volume, and structure."

Math Talk ’Symmetric Products of Graphs’ - Evan Witz
- (12:20 PM - 1:20 PM) The AU Math Division Presents a Math Talk presented by Evan Witz.

The talk will be on Tuesday, April 28 at 12:20 p.m. in Myers Hall Rm. 334

Title: "This is a graph theory based talk in which we discuss the concept of a hyperspace graph. Graphs are useful in many different sorts of modeling, from turing machines in Computer Science to evolutionary trees in Biology. Graphs are useful in these regards because they give a very intuitive way of showing how elements of finite sets (such as machine states in turing machines, or species/families/etc. in evolutionary trees) interact with one another. This is done by establishing adjacencies between members of the sets that are in some way related. However, we may also want to construct a way to relate multiple members of our sets to others; that is, rather than observing one turing machine state or species at a time, we may want to see how a collection of states or species interact with other such collections. Our hyperspace graphs provide a method for this. In this talk, we will describe these hyperspace graphs, and establish several theorems dealing with their planarity, order, size and classification."

The Moment In-Between
"What we see before us is just one tiny part of the world. We get into the habit of thinking, this is the world, but that’s not true at all. The real world is in a much darker and deeper place than this, and most of it is occupied by jellyfish and things. We just happen to forget all that. Don’t you agree? Two thirds of the earth’s surface is ocean, and all we can see of it with the naked eye is the surface: the skin. We hardly know anything about what’s beneath the skin."

Kelly Brenner Justice - Ceramic Art:
Optimistic volumes arranged in stacks and tiered levels, elevated to different heights, create tabletop landscapes reminiscent of elegant party displays. Demonstrative, they reference marketing and window displays, products in seductive colors and glittering materials strategically arranged with the intent to allure. Through repetitive casting and playful staging, I create a paradise in which every serving vessel is bright and gleaming; a dream world where everything is perfect. I aim for the implication of many, for the promise of the party, for the anticipation of joy and companionship. The heart of my work is the capturing of an ideal.

Kevin Dartt - Sculpture/Dimensional Studies:
It is my belief that our ecological issues stem from a consumerist society founded in a hierarchy that privileges human consciousness. My goal is to confront consumers with these issues by making prototypes for mass production that reflect our consuming behavior while at the same time promote a new philosophy of consciousness. The final objects combine natural entities with the aesthetics of consumer products in a satirical manner.
