Long Island City artists invite you to explore an arts haven just one subway stop from Midtown Manhattan. See the work of sculptors, painters, scenic designers, jewelry and craft-makers, visual media and performance artists, as they open their work spaces to the public Saturday and Sunday afternoon, May 30th and 31st, 2009.

Blood is Life is a 10 minute animation by media artist Holly Daggers, currently on display at FMT studio. The work is created with procedural programming, where the animation is allowed to breathe within preset variables resembling the rhythms of a living organism. Cells rush over a slit-like orifice or wound that slowly undulates and glows. Stills of the work and an artist’s statement can be found at her site:
Holly Daggers is a live-video artist who creates and composes visual media in real time. Sheâ€™s performed as a concert VJ for Busta Rhymes, James Brown, Page McConnell, Moby, and T.I., and was voted a Top 20 VJ worldwide by DJ Magazine, UK. She has designed video environments for Fortune Magazine and Old Navy, and created interactive video installations for the Museum of Modern Art, NY. Holly collaborates with musicians and choreographers presenting her media performances in both art gallery and theatrical settings, and has opened her shooting studio to create Dance on Video as a hybrid performance venue. In 2006, Holly traveled to 34 cities with music acts featuring Ludacris, The Roots, Common, Talib Kwali, Pharcyde, and Blackalicious, creating opportune art performances by pulling members of the hip hop audience into her live chromakey rig. As co-director with Eric Dunlap of Forward Motion Theater, a non-profit arts organization, she developed EyeWash, a six-year performance series which has fostered interdisciplinary collaborations between more than 150 digital media artists and live performers.
Holly is supported by Edirol/Roland, Korg, and Reflecmedia. Her portfolio and other visual interests can be found at WetCircuit.com.
Students from Juan Morel Campose Secondary School in Brooklyn worked with FMT through NUTUREart’s Educational Outreach Program. After a lecture and subsequent visit to the FMT studio, we collaborated together on a piece of video art.
The students chose the theme of the destructive nautre of gossip as theme, provided the photographic imagery, choreography, physical and audio performance. The project was directed and produced by FMT. The final result will be on display at NUTREart’s gallery space in May 2009 as a part of the SOCIAL (VIRUS) exhibition.
NURTUREart Non-Profit, Inc. is a charitable organization dedicated to helping promising career-track visual artists creating fine art in all styles and media to support themselves exclusively from the sale of their artwork. The Education Outreach Program was created by Eliot Lable, an artist, educator, and NURTUREart Trustee, and Sarah Hervert, an Assistant Principal and former art teacher, and a member of the Education Outreach Committee and NURTUREart Advisory Board. This after-school program brings together two very important groups within the Williamsburg community: students and artists.
