Stevens’s work has, for some years now, been concerned with the idea of ‘’everything’. This interest has its origin in the 19th Century plein-air tradition of artists drawing their subject matter from their local surroundings. But today this has become problematic. What now constitutes ‘’local’ includes images spanning horizons that stretch from our own interiors to the farthest regions of space. The appearance of reality itself has multiplied to include high-speed and time-lapse, x-ray and infrared, the cinematic, the virtual and the prosthetic. Stevens is haunted by the thought that there may now be more images in the world than there are things that they depict or represent. How can we find meaning in this plethora of visual material, a way through this forest of signs? Instead of offering specific answers to these questions, Stevens is more interested in looking at how we attempt to understand the totality of this landscape. He sees something definingly human in our need to order and make sense of that which is beyond our grasp. Link here.

Christopher Derek Bruno is a maker above all other things. After his education in industrial design, Derek moved about the United States cultivating his approach to the design/fabrication of furniture, and sculpture based imagery. Currently residing in his hometown of Atlanta, his recent work intends to explore the cognitive visual experience using (but not limited to) a set of 0-dimensional points bound by 1-dimensional lines, combined to make 2-d planes, organized into 3-d forms, applied to objects with the express purpose of creating a 4-dimensional relationship with someone else.

CORPICRUDI are Samantha Stella and Sergio Frazzingaro (Genoa, Italy). Since late 2003 they are working on hybrid projects between contemporary art, music and style focusing on aesthetic harmony. In the conviction that art must dispense harmony and that aesthetics is its fundamental element, the research developed by corpicrudi is based on the Oscar Wilde’s theme of the pretence, and the necessity of finding in it the only possible approach to the representation of the idea of beauty.
