Assistant Professor Tivon Rice and PhD Alumnus Adam Hogan will represent DXARTS at CYFEST-13 with video installations at the St Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design.
"A space station has temporarily appeared in the exhibition hall. It is a black structure divided into sections with separate exits. Each of them contains an artistic image, a fragment of the world, independent and at the same time inseparable from the others.
These sections, like portals, lead in different directions:
To a scale that is incommensurable with our bodies, and to signs of the presence of another person, undetectable to our ears and eyes.
To inhuman speeches in impossible landscapes, to new classifications arising from glitches and errors.
To spaces where an act has an immediate consequence, where time can speed up and slow down, and an uttered word gains the power of action.
To a dimension in which time appears on film, and the beating of life holding a body “afloat” gains visible form.
into the future of interplanetary everyday life, into movement at cosmic speeds, into instantaneous digital proximity."
