I am currently making instalations and performance in the virtual world of Secondlife. This has been my prefered creative platform for the last two years because of the possiblity to meet international artists and bring together most 2 and 3D mediums, like multi-media, sculpture and animation, in real time.
I am interested in that which lays between, the area where binary codes and constructs collapse and cease to function. Gender bending and blending is in my experience the only area that truly confronts and breaks down all these codes.

Art that ingests / An erotics of the incorporation of the Other / Gain at the expense of contamination / Art that exists in the bodies of the audience / Abrupt dissolution of boundaries
Caitlin Berrigan’s practice is conceptual, carried by material things: tactile and edible sculpture, immersive installation, electronic media and participatory performance. She is interested in alluring objects and situations that must be activated by participants, initiating an experience in their bodies that connects physiology and intellect. The artwork itself becomes embodied, producing sensate forms of knowledge.
Annetta Kapon’s multi-media works, videos, sculptures, photos and drawings, are structured on ideas of horizontality, photography, language, labor and repetition. Her highly mediated representations are of things that are not what they appear to be, yet they do not lie. Her uncanny sculptures often contain familiar objects whose combinations and recontextualizations allow a rethinking of their political, historic and symbolic meaning.

I am a visual artist and curator. I grew up in Germany, where I studied art at various art schools and art history at the University of Heidelberg. After I moved to NYC in 2003 I have curated several exhibitions in Germany, Spain and the USA (notably 'Skin' at the Goethe Institut in New York, the Heidelberger Kunstverein and Galeria Tribeca in Madrid, Spain; 'Out of the Box' at Elga Wimmer PCC in NYC, 'Carolee Schneemann, Early and Recent Work, A Survey' at Pierre Menard Gallery in Cambridge, MA and 'Meat After Meat Joy' at Daneyal Mahmood Gallery, NYC). I have shown my work at museums and galleries in those countries as well and edited more than a dozen books and art catalogues. Kehrer Verlag published my book 'Skin' in 2005.
Laura Splan is a New York based mixed media artist. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of California, Irvine where she originally studied Biological Sciences. She received her Master of Fine Art in Sculpture from Mills College in Oakland, CA. Her conceptually driven work employs a variety of materials and processes that usually have a feminine sensibility about them. Unsettling scientific and medical imagery are foiled by more comfortable domestic imagery and craft processes. Likewise, the seemingly familiar and benign are subverted by the anatomical and biological. She often uses her own body in the production of materials for her work such as blood and discarded facial peel. She recently became a certified phlebotomist.
