Jeremy Turner

   
STATEMENT: For these sample images, I definitely wanted to keep the playful aspect intact and keep the conceptual underpinnings of the process concealed. I also wanted (with the cat pix) to enhance the kitsch value of the work in order to demonstrate to the submittee that one does not have to be so academic with the work although it is good the other pocket curators have shown that other avenues are possible too.

Jess Loseby

TITLE: Untitled
STATEMENT: I was stuck on this idea of a cryptic autobiographic based on slices of images and text left in the 'pockets'. In some ways I think my response was a bit obvious but (hopefully) the domestic influences make it into something a bit different. Although it was a bugger, the 50k rule meant that the prime influence on the piece was text based which I always find really exciting and that the graphics had to be stripped down to their most basic elements and colours (to keep the size down) which dictated a much harsher selection and editing process than I would usually work with. This I found a really positive influence as I had to become much more objective about whether the images I used really 'worked' with in piece rather than letting my scan-manipulate-paste addiction take over the graphic elements of the artwork.

Kanarinka

STATEMENT: The hierarchy of the computer's file system is rigorous and unforgiving. I sought to create some more creative layers of structure and representation on top of this hierarchy and experiment in a space where even rigorous structures and systems of representations can shift into chaos, randomness, or simply alternative meanings.

Eric Robert Parnes

TITLE: SGI/DOS

STATEMENT: Eric Robert Parnes is a visual artist whose work explores the emergence of science and technology in the world we inhabit. Rather than a blind disciple of modernity, he instead considers the developments of tomorrow for their opportunities as well as their
limitations. His work has iconified structures and machines, and imagines the objective verities of science, technology, and bio-chemistry through the subjective lens of art. With over 10 years of experience, he has completed coursework at New York University and the Pratt Institute. He implements his vision in a broad array of media, including painting, photography,
acrylic sculpture, and multimedia.

Greg Giannis

Coming soon
TITLE: Untitled

STATEMENT: I have a web site which recontextualises digital images that I collected over the year 2001. As these images were collected over the year and dumped onto my hard drive it became obvious
that this mechanical device (the hard drive) was now serving as an adjunct to my memory. The
images are displayed randomly in a 4x4 grid and present an alternate memory through digital
photography. A history of a year in my life through this medium. Fragments recombine in random
ways to create new associations between disparate events and memories. Images often recombine
in surprising ways raising questions about our own abilities to remember and the role the
digitisation of photgraphy plays.

Mason Dixon

STATEMENT: The overlayed transparent visualizations of these forgotten desktops contain all the obscured lines of my past exploits absolving in the digital fire of generative iterations. The letters DC stand for Document Container as if to suggest the confused package of too much marketing like a bright bottle of detergent. Purple floor is a dream computer; contained.

Kate Armstrong

TITLE: Reckoning

STATEMENT: With Reckoning I began with a screen capture of the quintessential Microsoft meadow-ground and designed a window that appears out of it as if in reaction to a secret or accidental probe into the heart of the system, which is shown as a baroque graph with various values ranging from solvitur ambulando, a solitary walk in which mental exercises take place, to quartz, a base component of time keeping electronics. It is meant as a painful little valentine from a computer system that witnesses creative work.
