From the AD Projects site: AD Projects is pleased to present an evening of videos by eight contemporary artists at the Big Screen Plaza. Each of the works blends digital or animated elements with live action to create eerie and entrancing scenes. The artists obscure, alter, and enhance the human figure to varying degrees. First, we enter into Ben Bigelow’s otherworldly landscape populated by clones with static-filled eyes in “The Great Melt.” Using different techniques, Heidi Zito’s “Sequence of Monotone” shows disembodied feet performing a peculiar rhythmic stroll across an abandoned stretch of sidewalk. Jonathan Ehrenberg’s “Seed” can elicit a visceral response, documenting one man’s transformation as he slowly loses certain body parts.
