    The video piece, Rounding Up of The Self defines "What is a progression of maturity in a humanist term" It is an abstracted expression and vague exploration of the question by an artist, Jung-hee Mun. Jung uses same amount of materials to make 8 cotton balls one at a time and displays in a chronological order like a person's developing step as advanced through negative and positive experiences. In the video, the artist tries to make the balls perfectly round which involves repetitive action and perseverance. Random quotes by famous people randomly appears, which juxtaposes with certain gesture of the artist in the video. "Proprium Cycle: Rounding Up of the Self" The body of work which evolved around the title Proprium Cycle solves my years-long questions of defining self in micro to macro levels. I use body parts as a symbol for a proprietor of life and manipulate myself as a model. My work begins with exploring the self and progresses to macrocosmic understanding of the self which is, in sum, how one composes a life. When time is added to ones experiences in the micro level, generalization and simplification happen, and it is a way of accepting the self. http://jungheemun.wix.com/jungheemun#!portfolio http://glasstire.com/2011/05/03/youre-never-gonna-make-it-flat-anyway-jung-mun-and-the-sala-diaz-effect/

          Erwin Redl "Sky Bridge Patterns", 2011 light Installation with acrylic and animated RGB LEDs 2 bridges, each 40 x 8 x 20 ft / 12.2 x 2.44 x 6.1 m Permanent Installation: Liberty Village, Toronto, Canada The installation transforms the two pedestrian glass bridges into beacons of light reflecting the vibrant activities at King Liberty Village. Each window pane is treated as a tile of a large light mosaic enveloping the people on the bridge. An additional option is to make a window pane 100% transparent by not lighting a particular glass pane. The light mosaic is displayed on the front (south) and the back (north) windows of the bridges. Each side can display can either be totally transparent or display a color pattern (monochrome, random, geometric, etc). The patterns fade slowly into each other creating a rhythm which breathes a contemplative mood into the surroundings. Turning panels on and off offers different views of the surrounding landscape to people on the walk way as well as different levels of transparency for viewers from street level looking at the sky bridge. video courtesy the artist and bitforms gallery nyc

                  Björn Schülke "Supersonic #5", 2012 fiberglass, motion sensors, theremin, subwoofer speaker, amplifier, electric cabling, custom circuits 40 x 48 x 40" / 102 x 122 x 102 cm Floor-bound "Supersonic #5" hybridizes the shape of a zeppelin airship with the stance of a bull. A theremin embedded within its body aggressively beeps and rumbles, suggesting the possibility of liftoff. Tethers of snakelike industrial cabling flow from its base, punctuated by one singular wheel - or ‘tail’. Video courtesy of the artist and bitforms gallery nyc.

                    Björn Schülke "Supersonic #3", 2008 fiberglass, plywood, steel, motion sensors, theremin, woofer, tweeter, amplifier, paint 22 x 46 x 15" / 56 x 117 x 38 cm "Supersonic" emits soft, low frequency sounds from a contoured and zepplin-shaped fiberglass shell that is mounted to the gallery wall. Its clinically white, streamline form houses a theremin which detects and responds to the proximity of a viewer, emitting a range of midrange frequency notes. Appearing to hold sophisticated powers of celestial communication or locomotion, the sculpture simply rests in a static observant position. Video courtesy of the artist and bitforms gallery nyc.

                      Björn Schülke "Spider Drone #2", 2012 wood, carbon fiber, two cameras, tft video display, motors, motion sensors, custom circuits 21 x 22 x 24" / 53.3 x 55.9 x 61 cm Perched in a corner, "Spider Drone #2" subverts the common idea of surveillance, turning the machine into a technological parasite that performs its own control parody. Extending from this sculpture’s insect-like body are two attached camera arms, which advance according to the detected movements of the audience. The object’s sleek surface finish suggests militaristic perfection and homogeneity, perhaps a disembodied surveillance cameral - while its exposed wires and screen-display pose a constant threat of inspection. Targeting the viewer, "Spider Drone #2" pivots protectively, and absurdly “shoots”, performing the function of automated warcraft. Video courtesy of the artist and bitforms gallery nyc.
