Their works have been featured in major museums, festivals, screenings and collections throughout the world including: Museum of Modern Art, New York; New Museum, New York; Whitney Museum, New York; The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, Los Angeles; Ars Electronica, Austria; SIGGRAPH; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Holland; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France; among others.
Projecting computer-generated digital images of translucent color on stationary geometric paintings on aluminum panels, Matthew Klubers new media constructions create a hyper color field space at the intersection of the virtual world and the physical world. His still imagerybased on the horizontal lines of collapsed digital data that result from a computer crashis painted on the metal support with fluorescent colors to mimic the luminosity of the computer monitor. The projected images range from beams of light and geometric patterns to colorful looping patters that provide an ever-changing kaleidoscope of color and fantasy that transforms a space. Kluber has exhibited his paintings/projections, films and drawings internationally, including: the Museum of Contemporary Art Shanghai, China; FOCUS09/Art Basel, Switzerland; Casoria Contemporary Art Museum, Italy; Micro Museum, Brooklyn and Portland Museum of Art, Oregon among others.
The Berlin That I Have Seen, by Susan Herdman is based upon photographs of Berlin that have been collaged based on formal relationships of color, form and texture, then projected in a continuous stream in a large format video. The juxtaposition of the images goes beyond the formal qualities and comments on the vestiges of violence and chaos of war that remain in the city and that have become a canvas for young street artists who incorporate the ravages of their citys history into their art. Herdmans artwork has been presented in many exhibitions and is included in public and museum collections, including: The Jewish Museum, Berlin, Germany; Brooklyn Art Library, Brooklyn, NY; Heard Museum Library & Archives, Phoenix, AZ; Eiteljorg Museum of Native American and Western Art, Indianapolis, IN; Museum Of Anthropology, University of California, Chico, CA and American Indian Center, Chicago, IL among others.
