Co-Lab(oration): Pattern Perception: A collaborative installation by Kyle Bauer, Amy Boone-McCreesh, and Katie Duffy

Pattern Perception is a mixed-media installation conceived, in collaboration, by Kyle Bauer, Amy Boone McCreesh and Katie Duffy. This project is an immersive site-specific installation that re-imagines the new Clement Street side main entrance of School 33 Art Center. Printed vinyl, painted walls, projections and decorative 3-D elements create a dizzying visual experience.

School 33 Art Center is pleased to present Threshold, an exhibition of Baltimore based artists Heather Boaz, Jill Fannon, and Milana Braslavsky. The three artists consider limits and edges, entry points, beginnings and endings, openings to domestic spaces, boundaries, and borders. The sculpture, photography, and installation shown negotiate each artist’s own experience and relationships. The work explores concepts of intimacy, vulnerability and fields of anxiety, with allusions to consumption, object-culture, and the anthropomorphization of inanimate objects.

Elena Volkova: Paperscapes

IMG_1577

IMG_1576

The Liminal surrounds us; it is the periphery of every moment of our existence, the behind-the-scenes of our reality; it makes no judgments and no assertions; it constitutes our everyday mundane poetry. It is simply there. In the liminal state, boundaries and factors dissolve, bringing attention to low-key and overlooked moments.

In Paperscapes, a series of photographs of pieces of paper on white paper, Volkova calls attention to the discrepancy between reality and artifice. Employing the ideas of trompe-l’oil, she is interested in the threshold between the real and the false, and the moment at which the two become interchangeable. These photographs and drawings of ordinary, commonplace, and familiar objects, bring attention to the neutrality and potential of a piece of paper.

Matthew Fishel: IN THE END, WE WERE NEVER SO DIFFERENT
Silent HD Animation Loop 6 Minutes 2012

Two Cold War bombers–an American B-52 and a Soviet Tu-95–follow an eternal flight path across a misty arctic sea. Having lived out their useful lives, they continue to spend their days as they are accustomed–flying in circles and dropping no bombs. Perhaps they have grown fond of each other.

“In the End, We Were Never So Different” is a meditation on crisis, missed potential, and changing relationships. It is a short film with no clear beginning or end, subverting linear time and creating an opportunity for the viewer to determine their own experience.

This film was created using Autodesk Maya, a software commonly used in film and game productions.
