    'Suite' is a mini musical melodrama. It is a meditation on being a nobody in a world where everybody wants to be a somebody. Borrowing footage from 'The Sweet Life' by Italian neorealist filmmaker Federico Fellini, performance artist Inez de Vega sings about the futility of life without youth, beauty and fame while wishing she was one of the director's celebrated heroines from the 1960s. Inez de Vega is an Australian artist whose performances are captured in moving image and still photography. Her cinema-infused works play with our inherited screen culture to create theatrical representations of fransgression, trauma and psychological neurosis.

      ‘Story of the Urban Food Chain’ is an installation which offers an opportunity for users to engage in stimulating conversations around the discourse of food through an artistic medium. The installation is an insight into our urban food chain, where everything is controlled by corporations, branding and politics; driven by the capitalistic mindsets. Farmers and producers today, are forced to abide by their whims & technology, or are being eliminated. Consumers are left without choices, unanswered questions, health issues and inflation. It is to understand, articulate and present these facts in a novice manner.

                Ela Boyd MFA Thesis Exhibition, Instances Instantiate Documentation. Generative video, one way mirror film, wood, LED lights and TVs. Ela Boyd's video installation work explores issues of representation and visual perception in terms of the body, time and space. In her exhibition catalog, Instances Instantiate, she considers the ways in which instances of multiplicity instantiate the actuality of simultaneous modalities of embodied presence. Outlining her research and practice, Boyd looks to constructions of cinematic production, (character, set, context and linear succession) as an analogy for our experience of perceiving, apprehending and simulating a continuous reality. Whereas the formal aspects of film/video media, such as frames, pixels, editing/remixing and spatial presence substantiate properties inherent to space-time outside of our perception of it. Boyd rejects canonical film theories of semiotics and psycho-analysis and utilizes Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy of film and Henri Bergson’s philosophy of time to evince her own ontological theory of actuality and multiplicity. Boyd develops this theoretical trajectory to posit multiple selves as proliferating and 'time-traveling' via mediated spaces, conscious apprehension and projection. Her categories of presence include the metaphysical/ephemeral body, thecinematic/iconic body and the fantasy body (imagined or dream self). Boyd uses the body-in-space to address what is considered to be actual/viable embodiment, new forms of inter-subjectivity and to generate a sense of a de-centralized presence. Through film theory and her installation strategies, Boyd unfolds three temporal scenarios; multiplicity, parallel and potential. Lastly, her research and practice expand upon and offer an experience of the ontological implications of flattened, extended and multi-dimensional/ conceptual space. To this end, Boyd is able to advance her theory of the image as an actual instance of embodied presence instantiated in the moment of conscious perception.

                    Metropolis Rises @ Red Gate Gallery, Beijing- Thanks to our talented filmmaker and sound engineer for putting together this wonderful vernissage video! island6 has long been known for its soft, romantic take on technology where pixelated fairies flitted around papercut trees under the pastel glow of LED skies. In its second solo show with Red Gate Gallery, however, the collective turns the electronic garden on its head with a hard, honest look at the meaning and direction of our obsessions with the automated and computerized.

                      Floating World is a dynamically generated animation commissioned for the South Lobby of the Mercedes House building in New York City. The 23-foot long installation continues Utterback’s exploration of the intersection between hand-drawn art and computer generated images. Inspired by linear scroll paintings and the site’s proximity to the Hudson River, Floating World combines painted watercolor strokes with specially designed computer software to create a flowing watery landscape across ten flat screen displays.
