This video work deals with ideas of isolation, security, shelter and of shaping one’s own environment. The video documents an eleven-hour performance during which I crocheted myself into a cocoon using red yarn. I crocheted continuously without breaks and the video shows the entire performance in real-time. Link here.

” I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa to German parents. Later immigrating to Australia as a 9 year old growing up and educated in South West Sydney. After having a very interesting first career, my career path took me back into the arts. I am very happy now in the solitude of my arts practice in my secluded studio. After completing a Diploma in Fine Arts from South West Sydney Institute of TAFE, majoring in printmaking but loving sculpture as well. With further studies in Printmaking at NAS and Wollongong TAFE, I work between my plastic toy sculptures and my printmaking. The plastic toy assemblages, disturbing to some, I see as my humorous side and my printmaking is what I consider more my voice………” – Freya Jobbins

I started creating conceptual images nine years ago. My work contains graphic, narrative images utilizing symbolism and the surreal, and continues to evolve through fashion editorials and fine art photography. I work as a freelance photographer, mainly doing Fine Art images, fashion editorials, portraits and collaborating with other talents, always with the desire of experimenting and pushing boundaries. ” – Jon Jacobsen

Marie-Lou Desmeules, French-Canadian artist & performer, moved to Berlin at the age of 21 to start her career as a painter. She promptly felt restrained by that sole medium & began experimenting different techniques and mediums. This resulted in her “Painting Surgeries”: a mix of performance, painting, sculpture and photography. Marie-Lou works directly on her models. She covers them under acrylic paint, clothes, plastic, paper & hair to create sculptures out of them. The final artworks are photographs of the living sculptures.

Terry Border was born October 16, 1965, and has spent the vast majority of his life in the Indianapolis, Indiana area. He graduated from Ball State University with a B.S. in Fine Art Photography in 1988. Then, because he wanted to be practical and not be an artist (he is from Indiana after all), he worked as a commercial photographer for many years photographing the most mind-numbingly, boring shit you can think of. If he would have worked harder, he could have gone on to photograph more exciting things, but he figures he probably had a very bad attitude about it all. In 2006 he started what he calls his Bent Objects project, mainly because all the other blog names were already taken. Basically, the project concerns adding wire to ordinary objects to help pose them as living characters, usually telling a story, and then photographing them. For some reason people liked it. Mr. Border has two books containing collections of his Bent Objects published by Running Press, and is now working on a children’s book for Philomel (a footprint of Penguin Publishing). He has a contract with Universal Publishing to make 2013, and 2014 wall calendars, and supplies American Greetings with various greeting card images. There are also, supposedly, several Bent Objects jigsaw puzzles for sale somewhere in the world, but he has never actually seen one in person.

Jim Isermann was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He received a Master of Fine Arts from CalArts and his work has chronicled the conflation of post-war industrial design and fine art through popular culture. He believes in the beauty of utilitarian design and has explored several traditional handicraft techniques such as stained glass, hand-sewn patchwork and hand-loomed weaving. His work has evolved from didactic representations of the failure of modernism to the physical embodiment of pure design. Isermann received a prestigious Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in 2001. He shows his work in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Europe. (via Metro)
