Systems Artists

Bradley Hart

Bradley Hart
"My work is an album of memories made by injecting bubble wrap with paint to create pixilated photorealistic pictures. The pictures are copies of both snap shots of important people captured by me or given to me and maintained as a part of my own personal photograph collection, as well as powerful images obtained from other sources. To create the Bubble Wrap pieces, I inject each bubble individually with acrylic paint, acutely aware of the exchange between paint and the air inside as one of those two elements displaces the other. As the paint is injected into a bubble the excess drips down the back of the piece. Upon completion of the injected work, the drippings are removed surgically from the backside of the plastic to reveal an impression of the work -- a derivative work with its own meaning and story."

Adam Shultz

Adam Shultz
Adam Shultz's Emoticon is an interactive floor sculpture which can be powered by a bicycle or by using electricity. The DIY trend that this piece represents is in stark contrast to other slicker digital imagery in this exhibition.
