Meg and Mark Aubrey
Interactive Suburban Experience

The recognizable objects of suburbia: landscaping, sidewalks, trash cans, and brick mailboxes permeate Meg Abrey's paintings. The landscapes contain desperately controlled and perfectly presented elements of an environment created to hold back the engulfing emptiness of a life filled with the effort of living up to expectations. Aubrey investigates neighborhoods full of successful individuals who use outward appearance to express their achievements, yet the reality is that the promise of an idyllic lifestyle filled with beauty, friendship, and security is not always found at the end of the cul-de-sac. Her work examines and deconstructs this environment, pulling apart the individual elements to tell stories of daily suburban existence.

For this piece Meg collaborated with Mark Aubrey.

Paul Stephen Benjamin
AaBbCcKkLl, 2012

Video, black and white, no sound, 04:04 minutes

AaBbCcKkLl is a video installation consisting of 5 stacked TV monitors playing multiple DVD's on continuous loop.  The looped videos are an investigation of time, history and American iconography.

Jonathan Bouknight
Nails & Buttons
The video Nails & Buttons (2011), by artist Jonathan Bouknight, is part of an ongoing series in which he works with a collaborator, setting up a scenario and asking them to act out an action while he films what transpires.  In this piece, the performer has been asked to button her blouse after 7” acrylic nails have been professionally applied to both of her hands.  With the handicap of such an extravagant “beauty aid,” it took her almost 25 minutes to complete a normally simple, routine task.  In Nails & Buttons, the actor struggles with, and adapts to, a self-induced physical limitation – a fabricated version of a naturally occurring growth – bringing an awareness of the discordance between body and “self” to both the actor and the viewer.

Mike Black
Disregard series # 3
PVC pipe, Spray paint, building's architecture

This is Mike Black’s third installment of the Disregard series. Black seeks out abandoned, forgotten, or overlooked sites for these sculptural interventions. He chooses to use uncommon materials and
spaces and transforms them by playing off the architecture and integrating his pieces into the sites themselves. The goal of this project is to ignite curiosity and further engage people with their

Funded in part by the Idea Capital.

Didi Dunphy

Swing Set
A Swing for two. The upholstered bench is oversized, as are the acrylic tassels that hang from the playful plastic coated chain.  The Swing Frame comes complete with a laser-cut ‘Tiara” up on top.

See Saw
Up and down you go.  A vinyl upholstered bench big enough for two or more.

Neither Here Nor There
Walnut and Porcelain Pallets/ Video Installation

Neither Here Nor There deals with the idea of memory indexing and archiving. Examining the construction and categorizing of such information and the possible parallels it may have to the people we become.

Jason Kofke     
Everyone and Everything

8mm film projection, 35mm slide projection, VHF transmission, surveillance cameras, televisions.

Adam Magyar

The Stainless video project is located on the borderline of still photography and motion picture.  I took my Stainless images from the platform with an industrial camera, but for the Stainless video, I took the subway and photographed the people waiting for the train on the platform with a slow motion camera.

An endless row of living sculptures brought together by the same subway line, the same direction, the same intention of taking the train to get caught and carried away by the urban flow.  All their motions slowed down, they are graceful and stainless holding their breath waiting for their train to pull into the station.

Casey McGuire
The Lure of Landscape
Video Installation with TVs
I am provoked by the eerie qualities of abandoned houses in Carrollton, Georgia, where I reside.  In my previous installations I have looked at the dysfunction of the concept of home and how these dysfunctions are amplified through objects. In my installation The Lure of Landscape, a tumultuous river of televisions and teetering facades of the domestic provide a disconnected arrays of visual stimuli that evokes a emotional and contemplative construct of landscape. The idea of an ‘artificial paradise’ refers to a space controlled by the individual (specifically home or house). In my works I orchestrate various elements to construct a personal narrative that investigates the problematic nature of artifice and perfection, specifically in this installation in regards to landscape and the domestic.

Michael David Murphy
Painters Panting

A supercut of inhalations and exhalations from (in order) Willem de Kooning, Barnett Newman, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, Kenneth Noland, Jasper Johns & Larry Poons.  From "Painters Painting", the original 1972 film by Emile de Antonio.

Chester Old
This installation, in its simplest form, is about communication. Isn’t that a big part of art? Not only communication to the viewer but for the artist through the entire process of creating . There is a lot of communication going on at Hambidge! From artists expressing themselves through their own work to artists talking to other artists about what they are doing, thinking about, reading about, experiencing in life and on and on.

So this piece is kind of a snapshot of what I have been doing in my studio (some of these pieces were started during my residency in one of the Hambidge studios). A slice of my life. It will include mixed media pieces called Repaired/Broken (working title), paper pieces titled Letters Never Written, mixed media megaphones, self-portraits, and some everyday objects all meticulously arranged as one piece, rich in symbolism about life. I am a storyteller…

Adrienne Outlaw
(in collaboration with Mariel Bolton)
This video celebrates the feminine power of touch. It is part of a body of work I am developing that examines, exposes and questions the complex and contradictory circumstances surrounding concepts of desire, comfort and nurture.

Justin Rabideau & Ben Coleman
Sculptural, sound work

Collaborating on Echo Justin Rabideau and Ben Coleman explore the notion of our interior spaces, Echo examines how sounds travel and become distorted within our homes. The installation focuses on the visual and experiential aspects of how communication travels within our living spaces. A call from one room to another becomes a vibration through our home, shifting and morphing as it travels through the rafters and floorboards of our intimate dwellings. Echo imagines how these vibration shift our spaces, alter our surrounding and seep into the materials of our homes.

Warrior Woman Pantoum
Choreography: Anna Leo
Dancer: Bridget Roosa
Music: Steve Everett

A pantoum is a Malayan poetry form in which the second and fourth lines of a stanza are repeated as the first and third lines of the following stanza. This solo uses that form as its structural base, and seeks to draw on movement energy that evokes images of both strength and nurturing.

Anna Leo is an associate professor of dance at Emory University. She created the Warrior Woman Pantoum solo in the Garden space at the Hambidge Center. Her choreographic interests often involve making dances by imposing external structures.

Bridget Roosa is an Associate Professor of Dance and the Director of the Dance Program at Agnes Scott College. She is also an active performer, choreographer, and is certified to reconstruct dances from Labanotation score.

Stephanie Smith
Printed flags with lights
Stephanie Smith will create an installation of joyful party pennants that flutter and twinkle in the evening sky but which hint to the threat of disaster that is always hanging overhead.

Marcia Vaitsman
Video HD. Original sound track: Enrique Bernacchini. How long is permanence? The 27 antennas, I see from my window, are huge upright objects ejecting to the sky a massive amount of human expectations and meanings, private and collective, can they be seen as metaphysical allegories? Contemporary urban totems? When culture becomes less artifact based, the speed of transfer of information leads me to think of how we are going to negotiate spaces in our cities. Preservation has strong roots in the transfer of knowledge through artifacts. In ancient places, for instance Rome, preservation provides cultural artifacts for the transference of knowledge of several moments: birth and rebirths of the city. These rebirths are strongly related to the endurance of its citizens to adapt to new economies, waves of migration, natural catastrophes or simply boredom: adaptation and reinvention of themselves as a strategy to survive. Caetano Veloso wrote about Sao Paulo: “it is all about the money that builds and destroys pretty things".

Bean Worley
This video work presents old media in a new context and uses found images and videos to create new understandings or knowledge within the art domain. His films and video are part of an experimental exploration in new media. His videos are also reveals a body of work that is in constant development.
Historically, this work builds on the Dadaist art movement by incorporating video-montage and use of strange juxtapositions. It also picks up on Walter Benjamins (1936) ideas on art in the mechanical age, but with a shift in focus to art in a digital age, where work can be produced in excess and be created and published immediately. His video tonight are created from sounds in the room to the moods of the spectators.
