Author, video artist and performer. With her dual philosophical and artistic training, Sandrine Deumier constructed a multifaceted poetry focused on the issue of technological change and the performative place of poetry conceived through new technologies. Using material from the word as image and the image as a word vector, she also works at the junction of video and sound poetry considering them as sensitive devices to express a form of unconscious material itself. The process of writing and the mobile material of the image function as underlying meanings of reflux which refer to the real flickering and to their reality transfers via unconscious thought structures. Her work consists mainly of texts, digital poetry, multimedia installations and audiovisual performances in collaboration with composers.

I want belief and doubt, devotion and rejection, all in cohabitation like the lion and the lamb lying together in the Millennium. As a Mormon missionary, truth was something to be proclaimed. Now, I appreciate the possibilities of infinite simultaneous fictions in creating art rather than obsessing over dictating a single reality. Deep in the red rock deserts of Utah, in a place christened after Saint Raphael, I became a child prophet. I took upon myself the gross sins of my father as if a weighty mantle. I heard the carefully timed cries of my distraught mother. Supplication was offered up unto the lord to wipe my sister’s and my mind clean. Cotton pulled out of the ear of the stuffed elephant late in the night with whispered covenants. Incest. Religion. Truth. Evangelism. Genealogy. Generations. Consciousness Eternal, Memory Transcribed, in Flesh, in Blood, in Semen, in Egg, one Mind in one Time, then, now, and ever hereafter.

Miriam Naeh (b.1988, Jerusalem) Lives and works in London. Holds a MFA in Fine Art with distinction from Goldsmiths University of London (2018) and a BA with honors from Musrara School of Art, Jerusalem (2014). In her work she collects and assembles fragmental elements and situations from different territories, and makes a mixed arena of visual absurdness. She uses photography, video installation, ready-made, sculptures and recorded performance in order to appropriate and reshuffle the visual evidence that has been drawn from reality, thus creating an unreliable report which can shift its focus towards possible – possibly fictive – untold stories.
Anna Lucia Nissen is a German artist working in Berlin. She works across installation, sculpture, performance, video, sound and text. Navigating the space between performance and installation she creates “walk-in-environments” that the audience encounters not only on the intellectual but also on the physical level. In her work she is examining the constitution of the human body trapped within the claws of neoliberal capitalism and their humorous but tragic attempts of liberation and escape. By looking at the role of rituals and symbols of our time, her interest lies in how the eeriness of desire and disgust towards objects of the consumer culture can take shape. She has graduated from the Städelschule Frankfurt am Main (2015) and received an MFA at the Glasgow School of Art (2015)
Yoshie Sakai is a multidisciplinary artist, working in video, installation, performance, and sculpture. She received her BFA from California State University Long Beach and her MFA from Claremont Graduate University. Sakai sees herself as an undercover cultural agent exposing the absurdities of a manipulative social structure while at the same time humorously struggling and reveling in it as a participant. She explores humor as a complicated intersection where hope, happiness, anxiety, and darkness reside in our society, a tension-filled existence of both criticality and complacency.
Florian Sumi was born in 1984 in Burgundy, he lives and works in Paris. He is represented by Galerie ValeriaCetraro, Paris. He's graduated of the École Nationale Supérieure d'Art de Dijon, France, under the mentorship of Marc-Camille Chaimowicz. What marks Florian Sumi's practice is the work of design, in addition to that of creation, to which he is committed. In this respect, he would be close to the designer or architect seeking, on the one hand, the systemic nature of the things of our world and producing, on the other hand, a series of objects whose structure is refined as the sketches are made. These objects generate uses, in the sense that they are made useful by their use, but nothing in this use is commonly received or generally accepted. Pill box, lightning rod, ashtray... prototypes or models, Sumi objects all have an actual or potential functionality, experienced in particular in filmed or photographed scenarios.

Adrian Dwitomo aka Tomo/Toxicmotel (b. 1992) does not have a flair in expressing himself verbally, Tomo decided to inhabit the niche realm of glitch art. In the process of crafting his talent in digital work, Tomo constructed his own style in digital destruction or glitching. This expressionist glitch approach derives from his interest in surreal art, collage art and psychedelic art, which then he interpret it with his own touches. Living to find a balance between depression and passion in creating glitch art,Tomo pours a lot of emotion in his work. His purpose is to create his own ultimate ideal world as he coined the term "Maximum Ultra Idealism"
Born in West Covina, California, in 1982 at a mere 1 lb. 2 oz., Evan Wright was placed on oxygen for six months which caused him to develop Stage 5 Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP), and he is now only able to see light and dark. Diagnosed with only a 5% chance of survival, as his doctors believed he would succumb to pneumonia, Evan defied all odds by graduating in 2002 from John A. Rowland High School in Rowland Heights, California, where he began his pursuit of the arts. He performed in the show choir for four years and then returned for another three years after graduation as the tenor section leader for the boys’ choir. From 2005 to 2016, he was at First Street Gallery Art Center in Claremont, California, where he developed and shined as a mixed media artist doing everything from drawing and painting to sculpture and tile work. According to Evan, a highlight from his time at First Street Gallery Art Center was being able to perform with John York of The Byrds when they were introduced to each other by York’s wife. Their heartfelt performance can be seen at the following link: Evan Wright and John York of The Byrds. Evan continues to work out of San Gabriel Valley Regional Center in Pomona, California.
Leah Wulfman is an architect, educator, media artist and occasional writer based in Los Angeles. Trained as an architect, she has been assembling hybrid virtual and physical spaces in order to prototype new relationships to technology and nature. Using analog materials and emerging technologies, her research approach centers around how we conjure and describe the body between and beyond the internet. In addition to mixed-reality installations that play with and emphasize the physical, material basis of everything digital, she is presently working on a loose writing series Living off the Land, a causal, poetic conjuring of all the ways we live off the land, while staying on the grid—from themes like ‘Deep Unlearning’, to our potential interactions with a Jacaranda Tree in full bloom witnessed through Google Earth.
