    Mikey Anderson walked the audience through a day in the life of Pizza Face, subverting his cheesy sheen of apathy by yawning the big questions (What Is Art? What Is Pain? Why Don't I Care?) at Brain Frame 8 on September 15th, 2012.

      Lake Powell is a man-made reservoir that provides power to the lower basin states of the United States of America. Established in 1956 along the Arizona-Utah border, the United States government selected the site for a damming project that would shift the lives and impose itself on the indigenous humans and nonhumans of Page, Arizona. The dammed water of Lake Powell would subdue the Colorado and San Juan rivers,186 miles and 72 miles, and create 1,960 miles of shoreline. The dam has reduced prehistoric, historic, and religious sites of value, with the Navajo people losing at least two defined sacred places. This 15-minute video performance contains a series of responses and interactions between the artist as both visitor and trespasser, the land (home, public, unknown) and the life (indigenous, invasive, sacred) among Lake Powell. as an attempt to remediate pre-existing ideas and misconceptions of landscape and nature and to work towards the creation of a new story for a ravaged land and people of the Earth.

          SAIC alumna Akemi Hong (MFA 2011) discusses how her experiences as a child of Chinese immigrants—traveling from one town to another to open Chinese restaurants—has literally unfolded into her work making animated books that tell her story. Discussing ideas of power and assimilation and framed within the reimagined “western,” Hong brings her experiences and perspectives to life.

                  • CIty Video Installation of The Whole

                    In my city installation proposal, I envision my animation The Whole as a 4 minute animation to be looped with 2 minute breaks in-between. The Animation will be projected onto the city (of Chicago’s) streets/park at night (for practicality, instead of a whole city, I am proposing to start with a certain small urban park in Chicago, but the specific site is yet to be determined with the Park District), suggesting the transpassing of a higher dimensional being, and also connecting to the human self-forgetting encounters with nature, in contrast with the usually self-centered human condition in the urban environment. However, simulating the biomorphic abstract imagery and bringing the Sublime to the ground on the human level is my effort of understanding the Sublime as something familiar and intimate. This installation is in reference to the satirical novella: Flatland: a Romance of many Dimensions, where Edwin Abbott wrote pseudonymously as "A Square" who lives in the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland. His encounter with a cube from the three dimensional world offers pointed challenge to the culture and social hierarchy of its world and opened up the wide exploration of other dimensions and even their beings. The only way that a square can maximally understand what is a cube and the three dimensional world is for a cube to come down to a square’s level and use its language to tell about itself and its world. Only after better understanding the cube and three dimensional world, A square was able to better understand the structure and meaning of itself and its flatland. This video installation will encourage the viewers to interact with the virtual images and their movements, which will help the viewers to be better aware of the space they are in, the connection to the internal space within each one of us, and the possibility of the existence of extra dimension or spiritual space, therefore a better understanding of the many more possibilities of life's meaning.
