Richard Garet is an artist interested in the evolution and the experience of art that has integrated into the digital file, transposing the medium's own natural distinct and significant constructs while also imposing its own virtual experiential condition. This condition articulates a realm of aesthetics unequivocally glorifying the apprehension of the screen’s luminous emission, the sight through evolving technologies, and the ethereal surface of the screen ultimately merging all mediums.
Diana de Avila|
Diana de Avila (b. 1965, US) is an award-winning artist who has acquired savant syndrome and synesthesia. Her artistic gift arrived suddenly and explosively after a relapse of multiple sclerosis and worsening traumatic brain injury (TBI) in 2017. These injuries drastically affected her vision and cognition and compelled her artistic emergence and the creation of a body of work numbering over 1200 pieces of digital art. She creates cosmic digital art rooted in fractal geometry, where quantum physics, chaos theory, and divine order converge. All this without any formal training. She has found her “tribe” within the artistic movement called Techspressionism, founded by Colin Goldberg. Diana creates digital art in both moving and still formats. She has found her most extensive collector base within the world of Crypto Art and NFTs. Diana is the subject and co-author of her new book Soldier, Sister, Savant, which shares the story of her artistic genius and samples of her art from 2017 to early 2021.

Sam is a multimedia artist who graduated from Cornell University with a BFA and an Architecture Minor in May 2021. In his practice, he explores uncertainty's power as a driver of creation, in how it motivates people to express themselves more clearly to each other. This instinct to create something from nothing parallels the experience of falling asleep. When we close our eyes in the dark, the dark, fuzzy vision that we see is called “Eigengrau,” German for “intrinsic grey.” This color condition precedes all of our dreams and many of our greatest ideas. Sam mirrors this progression in his paintings, starting with a layer of black and building imagery based on what he perceives in the subtle ambiguity of the canvas. Our prehistoric ancestors had a similar experience sitting under the night sky. They built campfires to illuminate their surroundings, and developed new myths and meanings from what little knowledge of the landscape they had. Their methods precede more advanced ways of expressing our visions to each other, and hint at what may lie at the far end of this creative trajectory: the potential to cultivate environments directly from our thoughts and dreams. Sam’s art has been featured in Cornell's Herbert F. Johnson Museum, Piano Craft Gallery, 1stDibs "Escapism" exhibition, and was accepted into the 2020 Best of SUNY and SUNY Chancellor’s Gallery exhibitions. Sam was selected for Cornell’s 2020 Anderson Ranch Painting Scholarship, a \art grant, and the 2020 Edith Adams & Walter King Stone Award.
FakeShamus (Shamus Clisset) rides the multidimensional aether with his 1-million polygon sidekicks, carrying 7 million reasons to hate his life (but he stays positive (mentally, not for covid, *cough-cough*)). The energy he consumes could power the 50 least-populous states for a year and he radiates his heat like a Noctua set up. He’s got 15-20 years in the game of trying to out-do all the minimalists, cubists, and MFA grads via 3D rendering, animations, and physics simulations, all baked out in slam-dunk glory and glistening silver countach. His favorite color is Void and his favorite ice cream is melted. Shamus's work is an obsessive exploration of the trappings and failings of contemporary technology and uncertain identity. Humorously deconstructing iconic pop-cultural landmarks and historical demons is his approach to this critique, while also embodying many of the absurdities he aims to lay bare. FakeShamus is simultaneously the creator and destroyer of his own world, an embodiment of our modern techno-dystopia, and a violent explorer of all potential futures.

LoVid is composed of the fabled New York artist duo Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus. Their award-winning transmedia work juxtaposes virtual and physical experience, and has been compared to visual ASMR, psychedelic sea creatures and unhinged quilting projects. To create the deeply-layered NFTs in this exhibition, they employ a kaleidoscopic range of technologies and processes from synesthetic composition and electrical engineering, to analog synthesizer video, to glitch and noise, to wearable design and stained glass. In the video below, they share a behind-the-scenes look into their studio, where the multi-dimensional magic happens. These activated pieces embrace the dualities of virtual and physical, material and simulation, fantasy and reality, hope and despair, and connectivity and isolation. LoVid's performances, video, and media installations have been presented worldwide, from MoMA, the New Museum, and the Museum of the Moving Image, to avant-garde institutions like Issue Project Room and The Kitchen. They have received grants and support from Rhizome, Franklin Furnace, Elastic City, Wave Farm, The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, Experimental TV Center, and LMCC; and awards from NYSCA, NYFA, Foundation for Contemporary Art, and Greenwall Foundation; and residencies with STEIM (Netherlands), Harvestworks, Eyebeam, Smack Mellon, and Cue Art Foundation.

In 2019, with over a decade of experience in the film industry, I decided to turn my photographic eye towards the stranger parts of my imagination.

Swoon’s work centers the transformative capacity of art as a catalyst for healing within communities experiencing crisis.“For me, Swoon is not quite a name but more like a code word for the trickster’s belief in miracles. If you break a rule over here and move a boundary over there, and have a moment of creative play, and create something of beauty—through all of those actions, combined with a lot of dedication, you can start to create little cracks in the facade of impossibility and inevitability. Through those cracks little possibilities come up, and they ask to be born. And then they’re born and they start unifying and linking with each other, and that’s a really powerful force. And that’s the force I live my life by.” - Swoon

Angie Taylor is a traditionally-trained sculptor who has worked as a digital artist since the 1980's. Her current creative process begins in VR where she models 3D characters and scenes. These are hand-painted and textured on iPad before being rendered in desktop 3D software. Her work explores themes of identity, isolation & otherness - often championing life's misfits and highlighting the struggles faced by them. Her highly-distinctive style is hard to pin down but has been described by some as Punk-Expressionism - a unique mix of punk art, naive art, pop art & expressionistic aesthetics and themes.

For me, Art is an endless journey, towards places freed by the artist who generated them. My journey as an artist starts with static and one-dimensional shapes designed on flat and silent surfaces. Then, the magic happens: a wave of bright colors breaks the silence and grants movement, bestows life. I believe my paintings are open to more than one interpretation, their meaning is not obvious, I would dare to say rather ambiguous. The multiplicity of colors conveys joy, liveliness, but also confusion and restlessness. Only those who have the patience to continue observing the scene will be able to go beyond the first impressions and find a multitude of meanings.

He expresses from the subconscious, painting in a manner that speaks to the improvisational abstractions of jazz to produce pieces that are both dynamic and vivid in colour. Like the permanence of exposures caught on film, wa sei exerts onto canvas a fearlessness in vulnerability; unveiling his truth that lies within the frame.

I am a visual artist, sound artist, and writer. My novels have been published by Villard and Tor. My digital art, movies, sound pieces, and fiction have appeared in numerous magazines, web-sites, podcasts, and film festivals. I used to paint houses (not as an art form.) I began making art in the previous century. Though I have never abandoned my beginnings, I no longer use paint or a typewriter: the world is now digital, and so am I.
3D Artist & Cryptoartist. The chromatic sensitivity and the aesthetics of words and images are the means to reach the heart of one's interlocutor. This is the path I am trying to chart in what I do.
Mostly abstract artist from New York. I focus on Fractal art, motion design and synesthesia at the moment.
Julia Taft was born in Los Angeles, California. She is a signed artist by Art & Co. She is building a career in the Arts while pursuing an education in Art, science, and business. Her work is often inspired by life’s lessons and a desire to remain a life-long learner. It is often said that artists see things that others miss. For her, the artistic process allows her to remove herself from the hectic pace of life, to become an observer, and to engage a childlike imagination and wonder at what she sees which she expresses in the ethereal and sometimes whimsical images portrayed in her work. Her art helps move her life towards calm and peace and gives her more clarity with each artistic piece.
Austin Willis (b.1993, California) is a self- taught artist focused on exploring one’s spiritual journey. Using abstraction as the gateway of expression to these intimate moments of questioning and growth in one’s life. This provides a deeper insight in his own battles with anxiety and depression, personal traumas, and the desire to continuously seek understanding. Within his practice there is an exploration of traditional and non-traditional painting materials to help better express these moments he’s looking to reflect. He lives and works in New Jersey.
