David D’Agostino • Boy Falling Out of the Sky
David D’Agostino’s inter-media landscape installation offers glimpses into alternate worlds populated by the Bulgarian Carnival, traumatized animals, Gregorian chants, hanging boys, over-development of Denver neighborhoods, and The Fall of Icarus.
BOY FALLING OUT OF THE SKY (2015) demonstrates D’Agostino’s unique approach to storytelling in which dark humor and absurdity function as central forces. The Bulgarian Carnival is the pivotal microcosm where repulsion and fascination, the will for appropriation of our senses, and the complexity and idiosyncrasy of human imagination all combine to conflate ‘what we don’t know, but what we think we know’.
In collaboration with the Atlanta Poets Group, Kelly Brewer, Corrina Espinosa, Carol Helm, Mango Katz, Mia Fagley, Claire Leavitt, Luke Leavitt, Daniel Nilsson, and Mariana Seriska.
Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design • Marie Weimer
Disequilibrium is part of our experiences and memories; we have all felt unstable at some time in our lives. For instance, migraines are an overwhelming sensation that makes lights, sounds, and movement intense and debilitating. The disequilibrium migraines cause in our body affects our experience of the world and enacts the urge to shut everything out in order to relinquish its hold on our reality. The motion in my photo series Volatile Motion shown alongside the video Migraine establishes the connection of migraines to motion in an experimental process that is dependent on light, time and sound. The process of long exposures allows for interesting lines, abstraction of the human figure, transparency and layered textures. These elements of migraines and motion go hand in hand with their distortion of the usual day.
Marie Weimer is a BFA candidate for 2015 at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design majoring in Photography and Video.
