THUNDERCRUSH
THUNDER CRUSH is the third piece in the “Paintor” video series. It examines the nature of art making and intertwines it with themes of risk, devotion, hardship, and creativity.

Looking Glass #13
Looking Glass #13 is an interactive video installation. The interactive element of piece reveals itself when the viewer realizes subtle coincidences. Looking Glass #13 sets up an illusion for its audience to negotiate the validity of real time and real space.

Mariel Carranza

Merry-Go-Round
What will appear as fun ends up being a test of the physical endurance of the artist, who will be spinning continuously on a merry-go-round challenging the audience to perceive this merry-go-round as a symbol of different metaphorical equations.

Kent Anderson Butler and Andrew Buehler

Hallowed Journey
One man binds another man in a straightjacket and rope, and then blindfolds him. He later carries the man and sets him in a red wagon taking him on a Hallowed Journey.

Helia Rabie

nest(1:28)
This video pieces consists of a static shot video of the artist making out with a
hummingbird nest.

Gabriela Arreola

Sad Girl
This performance is a physical embodiment of childhood memories. Arreola grew up in Bell Gardens, CA, during a time when cholos and police on the streets were commonplace. Instead of facing her childhood fear of the cholo culture as she had previously in other performances, in this piece she becomes it.

Eusebio Travis Sevilla

Searching for Jan Ader's stick
This video is a shot for shot re-performance of an untitled video by Bas Jan Ader. This is an investigation on how time, location, and performer alter the meaning of a work.

Elizabeth Watkins

Untitled (I Want You)
Untitled (I Want You) creates an interactive playground in the space between viewer and viewed to investigate the relationships that dictate the way information’s various forms are absorbed and interpreted.

David Burns et al

PATRIOTIC, 2005
PATRIOTIC is a meditation on intimacy, dependency and control using the exchange of food as a symbolic exchange of love, one that carries with it all the potential of abusive control.

In this performance, a trebuchet operator catapults compressed paper pulp in various colors at the canvas. Over the course of the performance the pulp builds up on the canvas creating various patterns.

Benjamin Bellas & Justin Cooper

Hey Coop, isn't this where the exposition comes
in?
A performance that explores the limits of the body and mind, action and memory
utilizing the classic narrative screenwriting structure involving “The Setup,” “The
Confrontation,” and “The Resolution.”

Anne Bray, Deborah Oliver and Janice Gomez

Top heavy seesaw
Suggesting art’s ability to recreate balance, the performer teeters on a floor-based mobile, holds her ground, loses it and re-establishes stasis over and over, while distracting images project through the room and rich music exudes from its core.

Amanda Browder and Stuart Keeler

Happy Beautiful Face is a socially based performance project that focuses on the
utopian dreams of the “everyday American.” The intent is to create a space of happiness and discomfort; glory and smugness; opulence and disgust.
