gijs van vaerenbergh / Reading Between the Lines In this unique project by Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh, architecture meets art in a beautiful and gentle way. Made with 30 tons of steel and 2000 columns, and on a fundament of armed concrete this unconventional church provides the viewer with unique perspectives and views from each angel. Courtesy of Gijs Van Vaerenbergh Depending on the perspective of the viewer, the church can appear as a conventional solid mass or a can disappear and blend into the landscape almost entirely. This structure is meant to aspire thought, contemplation a sense of existence.

ANGELA WASHKO - Playing A Girl Screened/Exhibited:The Sun That Never Sets: Spectacle and Normalcy in Time, SPRING/BREAK Art Fair, NYCSubversive Strategies in Online Gaming Culture, Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki FinlandA Haven, Art Connects New York, NYCAngela Washko: It's Just Not Fair, Austin Peay State UniversityParameters: Jena Cummiskey, Kyle J Thompson, Angela Washko, Center for Design and Geopolitics, UCSD, San Diego In early 2012 Angela Washko founded "The Council on Gender Sensitivity and Behavioral Awareness in World of Warcraft" as an intervention within World of Warcraft, the most popular massively multiplayer role playing game of all time. In this particular performance, I discussed several male players' decision to play female toons (avatars) and also got into a discussion with a female player about her belief that if you wear revealing clothing it's your fault that you get raped (hardcore slut-shaming).

Andy Goldsworthy - subtly beautiful environmental art Here in New York City, the weather is shifting from hot humid summer, to the cool crisp days of fall (my favorite time of year) and the seasonal cycle of nature prompted me to look at artists who work with natural elements. Born in 1956, Andy Goldsworthy is a British sculptor, photographer, and environmentalist living in Scotland who has created sublime and beautiful works of art made up of only natural materials. Most images below come from the Andy Goldsworthy Digital Catalogue at the University of Glasgow, Crichton Campus, Dumfries, which documents works created from 1976-1986. Andy gently shapes leaves, snow, ice, twigs, feathers, rocks, and other elements, and blurs the line between natural and man-made beauty. In a 2001 documentary directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer called Rivers and Tides, Goldsworthy discusses how working with nature roots him, and how time away from his work makes him feel rootless.

Benjamin Ziggy Lee Stock Photos On the surface, this series is a documentary of adolescent youths in their rooms. Their gazes are averted, looking out the window and beyond. And in their respective “window frames”, an artificial landscape is constructed using found images online. What will be constructed then?

What will happen to the memory accumulated in DVDs and hard drives? Analog film has a physical presence that enables its direct visualization but for an archive in graphic format it is necessary to be decoded. We can make backup copies, but the doubts regarding images of immaterial nature persist. Diego Collado aggravates the issue by insisting that there is no place for nostalgia, all of these memories will be lost, but marvelous transformations will be made in the process.

Joanie Lemercier NimbesAudiovisual piece – 15 minutesby Joanie Lemercier and James Ginzburg Nimbes explores the ontology of observation and its relationship to cosmogony, notions of intelligence and individuality. As a universe comes into being, emergent structures arise and determine its unfolding. From the perspective of observation, intelligence is an emergent property of the universe in which we find ourselves. As if from a desire to participate in the process of unfolding, we create both architectures and narratives, repetitions of the cosmogony, microcosms of the universe, in which all our actions find symbolic expression on a macrocosmic scale.
