Using software processes of his own design, Jason Salavon generates and reconfigures masses of communal material to present new perspectives on the familiar. Often, the final compositions are exhibited as art objects – such as photographic prints and video installations – while others exist in a real-time software context.
Emily Jacir creates works about transformation, questions of translation, resistance, and the logic of the archive.
