Heidi Kumao 
Surviving Confinement: Video Sculpture

Reception: Thursday, September 4, 6-8pm       

Three works about surviving physical confinement are each inspired by the experiences of individual women including: a college student living under an authoritarian government, a Japanese-American girl relocated to a WWII internment camp, and the artist herself-constrained for months in a clam shell back brace. In each piece, Kumao interweaves video, photos, animation, and sound into a surreal journey that is anchored within a compelling narrative. She transforms everyday objects through mapped video in which real objects and shadows interact with shadows from non-existent objects, creating an uncanny dichotomy for the viewer to resolve.

Hand and Machine


Shirley Steele,
Cardinal, 30 x 30", acrylic and inkjet on mylar

In these mixed-media paintings, gestural paint strokes and computer animation combine to explore a central tension of the information age, the human/machine relationship. Paint and programming join in a playful and reflective dialogue between hand and computer, between the irrational and the rational.
