Adam Taylor | Photographer
An inquiry of human nature and a search for our identity, what do our costumes and masks reveal about us, are we the mask or are we the wearer of the mask?

About Akim Zerouali
Born May 1st 1967 near Paris
In 1999, his sister, a photographer, offered him his first camera, a Zenith. Through the lens of this vintage Russian camera Akim, self-taught photographer, decided to record the world around him. Later, equipped with a 6x6 and a 24x36, he traveled the world from Paris to Queenstown via London, Dubai, Cape Town, Brussels, Beirut, Istanbul and Palermo. Through his live photographs he captured the emotions and atmosphere of fleeting moments. In 2004, together with two friends who shared their passion for photography, he created the group “L’Oeil du Chacal”. The purpose of their association was to offer three different perspectives of the same subject or place. With this idea in mind, they have already travelled to Belgium, Poland and Rumania.
Gravity Matters Little
Installation | 2012 | steel frame, modeling foam, fiberglass | 9x9x3 ft
Henry Brimmer | Professor of Advertising, Michigan State University
Gravity Matters Little is a site-specific urban work of art intended to surprise viewers when they initially discover it. It was originally installed 175 ft from the ground at a busy intersection in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for ArtPrize. Since it represents an individual in a dangerous position, and no explanation is anywhere near, it is up to the viewer to come up with his her interpretation.

Untouched digital files
In times of high-end digital images I have been controlling a photo and the content of the image mainly and heavily by postproduction.
Often my photographs are the result of my own projection - what I am expecting - but did not happen. I am often limited in visual experience because I control seeming mistakes. I am describing again and again my point of view in perfection by manipulation of the image and the image content.
I got bound with these foreseeable, antiseptic photographic results. I felt bound by the high-end technique in my work as a professional photographer.
By eliminating (hacking) the software (for handling noise reduction, color separation, grain reduction and aperture settings) of an amateur digital camera, I achieved a pure digital chip file only controlled by exposing. This generates a digital image including all photographic optical mistakes.
The photographs of "raw moments" where printed without any digital manipulation.
* My process and technical strategy might be able to push my border of photography itself into a new way of viewing and understanding.
With the project "raw moments" I am concentrating on content, perspective and exposure time of the photograph in order to use the chance to create (in parts) an unexpected image that expresses the view of my surrounding in a new way.
I kick off a new seeing.

Miloushka Bokma | Photographer
The personal and emotional history, which every man carries is the premise of my work. Memories are experiences reflected in someone's face, glance or posture. They are signals, as elusive traces in the body: manifest or suppressed. I examine the language of the body in relation to its environment. They are staged-in-context situations, where the human capacity and inability to relate to his or her own history become visible and tangible. There appear to be, however, unsolved riddles. The situations I create are snapshots of a personal history, in which I try to uncover hidden layers of the inner aspects of human existence.
In my latest video works I stretch the image in time. The characters - situated in public spaces - stand for a certain emotion of the one, that is displayed and magnified in the respond of the other who is trying to keep a mask in order to conceal his or her discomfort.

Andrew Lok | Civilization | Founder
China is a great civilization, but there are some aspects of modern Chinese life that have yet to be deemed civilized. What if the most common act of uncivil behavior disappeared overnight? We would be left with the tools that serviced that behavior, and we could use them to create art that celebrates our society's progress towards civilization. This civilization would be clear and obvious for all to see, but it would also be fragile and require our constant vigilance so that it does not fall apart. The best way to protect this civilization would be for all of us to offer an opinion as to how civilized we are as a society, and to share that point of view with the entire world.
