TRANSMISSION
Part One & Part Two
A Traveling Group Video Exhibition and Artist Talk

Curated by Catlin Moore and Matthew Gardocki
http://5790projects.com 
Part One: January 24, 2014, 7-9pm Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock
Part Two: February 8, 2014, 5-7pm Orange County Museum of Art
 Featuring work by: Deanna Erdmann (BA 2002), Elana Mann, Emily Mast, Danial Nord, and Tyler Matthew Oyer

The artists featured in TRANSMISSION use video as a way of navigating perceived, assumed, and projected identities. By assuming or presenting exaggerated modes of selfhood, each artist delves into the constructs that shape abstract and popular notions of individuality. From Deanna Erdmann's portrayal of the embattled self, to Tyler Matthew Oyer's vulnerable self, many of these videos create discomfort and tension in the mind of the viewer as our protagonists struggle to find a definitive persona. Conversely, Danial Nord's work addresses the fluidity of a manipulated personality, while Elana Mann investigates the mediation of our modern collective psyche. A common thread between each work, the communication and vernacular of a shifting culture – as captured in Emily Mast's piece – largely shapes how we orient ourselves within a greater social topography. These concepts, as well as how the medium of video uniquely contributes to them, will be expounded upon during each exhibition's artist talk.
