Studio 02 > Marte Roel

Exploring my life I have been through different periods of all sorts, from success to sorrow and art to science, collecting perspectives on what constitutes my world. For my relevance as an artist to become more plausible, I shall present rhetorically a few of the credentials that I have collected though the years, even though they are not more than stories that obtain value within our cultural paradigm. I must say that these credentials do not represent my works or my attitudes towards the world:

I have been recognized with multiple awards, including the John Bavicchi Composition Award, an Ableton award and I have been fellow of the Telmex foundation, the Mexican Council for the Arts and Culture and the Mexican Council for Science and Technology, as well as Berklee College of Music and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. I have worked in virtually all areas of contemporary music and explored the grounds of philosophy and philosophy of science, more recently I have been exploring the realm of cognitive sciences. Currently I am working on 3D sound for a EU’s project called Rehabilitation Gaming System with the support of the Mexican institutions FONCA and CONACYT. I have thrist for producing, exploring and sharing this creative experience that will break into rich redefinitions of the world.

Studio 10 > Jieun Oh

Her voice is full of self confident. Her words are no additive, no rhetoric.
Ji-eun is a singer songwriter from Seoul, Korea. She didn’t have any prejudice to any kinds of music and art. Because she believed music and art couldn’t be described as a single word.

Her open eye to the world let her sing her own songs. She experienced many interesting life. travelled a lot and met lots of people who inspired her much. At 2006, She made her debut as a member of acoustic duo named, heavenly. Heavenly had a few club gigs then applied for Yoo Jaeha’s singer songwriter competition. Heavenly won a bronze medal. Then she left the duo to start her solo career. The first album, ‘Ji-Eun‘ is a self produced album. The way of production was truly ‘self produced’. She asked her fans for a donation to fund. This was a quite fresh, because no one had produced an album as she did before.

When ‘Ji-Eun‘ was released, it became popular by word of mouth alone. ‘Ji- Eun‘ didn’t have a chance to promote like other records had because it came from totally independent. Her debut album became one of the top seller in Hyang music, which can be ‘Rough Trade Records’ in Korea.

Ji-Eun is currently working on her new book and Her long awaited 3rd studio album will be out by fall, 2012.

Ariana Cardenas Vargas
Actress / Audiovisual artist

Short Bio: Moving in the area between film and theater, I use my video editing studies and my work as an actress to play with multi-visual arts as I experiment with disguise. Currently studying musical theater,  feeling curious about video art and VJing, and developing a project that uses burlesque to work with the body and elements of undressing as a tool to change attitudes and prejudices against the female natural body in today’s society.  It’s showtime!

Photography

I was raised in Brooklyn, New York. I started learning how to develop film and work in a darkroom when I was 11 years old and since then have always pursed my interest in the process of developing pictures. I often use old cameras including a Polaroid in which for the past two years I have dedicated to producing my artwork. I also sometimes like to draw my photographs. I try to incorporate my interest in psychology into my work.

Studio 02 > Kara

Kara Liebowitz, Artist and Anthropology student 

I am a New York City based artist and a student of Anthropology at New York University as well. 
 
In terms of my process relating to my painting, I like to work large because it allows me to move freely with my body, arm, and hand. In turn, I primarily paint with oils because of the fluidity and expressiveness which they allow me. My focus right now is on figurative paintings of women. I hope to explore the relationship between gender and sexuality in terms of representation, ideas, attitudes, actions, beliefs, and practices. It is possible to interpret the women I depict as an objectification of women in general so I think it important to emphasize that my goal is not to perpetuate stereotypes that entrap women.
 
I believe there to be a great deal of strength that can be derived from one’s sexuality and it is pivotal to the construction of selfhood. I struggle to understand this with my paintings and ultimately I hope to challenge paradigms about art by making people question themselves.
 
I reside in a fifth floor walkup in the West Village (Greenwich Village in Manhattan) with two hairless cats named Igby and Nefertiti. Their natural curiosity and off beat looks and demeanor inspire me.
