Marc Lafia’s ongoing work Permutations of a Thousand and One Nights is a series of videos (or data) that are taken throughout every day and evening, and projected into multi-screen compositions. Marc has shown his work at the Whitney Museum, Exit Art, Thomas Erben Gallery and in Germany and Japan.

Terry Nauheim’s video Car Drawing was generated by tracing another artist’s hand movements with video and audio machinery. Terry Nauheim is currently an artist in residence at Harvestworks.

Robert B. Lisek’s FLOAT is an on-line community channel providing “experimental space” and a variety of tools: from a public chatroom to live textstreams, through which users can voice their ideas, both locally and globally, for transmission worldwide. Lisek is an artist, mathematician and founder of Fundamental Research Lab.

David Stout’s HotHouse is an interactive installation that explores the potential of a genetic engine capable of generating an evolutionary synthetic cinema that recasts the artist as a co-determinant within a dynamic system. Stout is a video artist, composer and performer.

Zoe Beloff’s new 3D stereoscopic 16 mm black and white film Charming Augustine is inspired by series of photographs and texts on hysteria published by the great insane asylum in Paris in the 1880’s. It is an experimental narrative work commissioned by Harvestworks with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts. Zoe works with a variety of cinematic imagery: film, stereoscopic projection performance, interactive media and installation.

Jillian Mcdonald’s new piece Snow Stories is a story engine, which uses appropriated and original film clips, images, animation, and sound to translate the viewer’s written story into a visual narrative. Mcdonald is a Canadian media and performance artist, originally from Winnipeg and transplanted in New York where she teaches at Pace University and co-directs the Pace Digital Gallery.
