Emma Cregan explores the space between the digital and intangible. “Escaping Light” is a series of five animations created using stop-motion and experimenting with long shutter speeds. The series illustrates the tension between tangible and intangible, each projected video an intersection of light and physical objects.

Johab Silva is a native Brazilian who has lived and worked in Washington, D.C. since 2008. After researching more about environmental economics and making a field trip to the Amazon rain forest in Brazil, he began to fabricate “Land Survey,” which is a body of work that includes wall pieces, video, sculptures, and a self-published book. This body of work is his response to his endeavor to raise a deeper dialog about probable solutions for environmental balance.
