Cut through the noise (echo chamber)

Selena de Carvalho

This video playfully explores fissures and cracks between an ideological representation and the consumption of the environment. For example, ‘eco porn’ and advertising generally portray romanticized landscapes free from pollution and industrialization, compared to lived experiences of wildness (such as getting lost in the Pyrenees) or seeking out nuclear reactors using Google maps. This project combines ‘natural’ and ‘man-made’ materials to draw attention to the power of the original and the copy, and references the fetishized notions of branding and symbols, as well as the inherent magic of technology.

Coasting

Ben Taylor

Coasting explores Ben Taylor’s interest in the sea both as a geographic edge and a reference point in time. The artist focuses on the seemingly mundane periods in time that
immediately proceed and follow an unusual event with the intention of transforming the images of these moments, through paint, to become something like a memory, one that is both familiar and strange.
