TV viewing is no longer a linear “one size fits all” channel surfing experience - 500 channels and still nothing on. TV is merging with internet and social media to evolve into a personalized experience involving multiple interacting screens. Cable operators are using over-the-top (OTT) multi-screen IP video delivery to reach phones and tablets, but when and how will it reach the 1st screen? Simply broadcasting everything is already impractical. What is the best way to connect users to the content they want to see (and pay for)?+ More details
"Dorian, a cinematic perfume" by Michelle Handelman. This project exists as both a single screen film and a 4-channel installation. "Dorian, a cinematic perfume" is based on Oscar Wilde’s 19th century novel "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and its themes of decadence, narcissism and the meaning of art. I have interpreted the story and it’s queer undertones by casting Dorian as a young woman discovered by a fashion photographer, then catapulted into the world of empty celebrity. She falls under the tutelage of a famous drag queen and becomes a nightclub luminary, constantly followed by the paparazzi. These media images become the infamous portrait, grotesquely mutating as she grows more beautiful and famous, culminating in her own narcissistic destruction. Like the films of Warhol and Godard, that blur the lines between performance and reality, all of the performers in Dorian are playing some version of themselves. Sequinette (Dorian) is a gender-bending drag impresario; Armen Ra (Lord H) is a renowned Theremin player; K8 Hardy (Sybl Vain) is a performance artist and co-creator of the queer art collective LTTR; Quin Charity (Basil) is a media artist and Flawless Sabrina (Dead Dorian) is a drag legend. CREDITS: Director/Producer: Michelle Handelman Featuring: Quin Charity, K8 Hardy, Armen Ra, Sequinette and Flawless Sabrina Original Music: Vincent Baker, Lustmord, Armen Ra, Nadia Sirota and Stefan Tcherepnin Cinematography: Edward C.R.

Nature Is Leaving Us (1989) along with Rogala’s other installation works have been recognized as groundbreaking projects that depart from traditional methods of performance. Robert Russett, Hyperanimation: Digital Images and Virtual Worlds, John Libbey and Co, 2009 "With 'Nature', Artist Creates a New Electronic Landscape" "...sophisticated and complex study of the dissolving link between humans and the natural world..." "...riveting images of birth, destruction, integration, and decay..." "In "NATURE IS LEAVING US", Rogala uses his technical skill to break up, speed up, slow down and integrate images to create an altered vision. - Lynn Voedisch, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, October 8, 1989 "Rogala has done a very difficult thing with extraordinary effect. He has taken the environmental theme and made it vivid, touching, agggravating, without insulting the viewer with cliche. He makes "NATURE IS LEAVING US" a video essay of such extraordinary visual and auditory interest that impact is made without impeachment." Byrne Piven, Producer/Director/Actor, December, 1988 "Complex and colorful, his (Rogala's) works bombard the senses almost to the point of overload from multiple video and audio sources." BACKSTAGE, December 4, 1987 "Video Art of Rogala..." "...NATURE IS LEAVING US is a work of extraordinary complexity. "As viewers, we must put off our minds to learning a new 'language', Rogala's language. We must put aside assumptions, especially our anthropocentric assumptions - the idea that man defines all else....Rogala neither utilizes nor ironically refers to, in the typical manner of post-Modernism, conventions of any sort. Instead he weaves symbols, images, sounds, gestures, words, in an impassioned desire to communicate as truly and completely as possible." Lynne Warren, Associate Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, The Goodman Theatre Program Brochure, Oct 1989+ More details
By H. Melt and Anya Solotaire 2013 "It’s a Boi" visually explores the gendered meanings that are attached to the body. Its use of multiple perspectives does not allow the viewer to form a singular assumption about the body onscreen.Through the every day and repetitive act of choosing what to wear, it emphasizes the role clothing can play in altering how people see themselves and present their gender to others. *video is silent*+ More details
