Render Series seeks to provide a glance at the circumstance of moving images, what images are capable of and what we are capable of inflicting upon them. Various practitioners are invited to acknowledge a personal value system through their approach to images between reality or vice versa. And the audience is invited to spectate with ulterior motives.
American artist Daphne Fitzpatrick is known for her witty embrace of semantic shifts that result from imaginative play with materials, objects and photographs. Her work often combines sculpture and photography. Like the traditions of Dada and Surrealism, her uncanny juxtapositions uproot stable understandings of the world around us. Fitzpatrick was on the Yale University Sculpture faculty for a decade, 2001-2011. Her work has been written about in Artforum, The New Yorker and The New York Times.
Jon Dieringer (b. 1985) is a Brooklyn-based artist, media archivist, film and video programmer, and writer whose work has screened at Anthology Film Archives, The Film Society of Lincoln Center, Eyebeam, Flux Factory, the Museum of Arts and Design, and Spectacle, NYC; and The Nightingale, Chicago. He is the founding editor and publisher of Screen Slate, a daily resource for listings and commentary on New York City moving image culture, and a prolific programmer, trailer editor, and administrator at Spectacle. His forthcoming curatorial projects include "The 'Lynchian' Aesthetic," a film and video series at the International House, Philadelphia, organized in conjunction with the first major museum exhibition of David Lynch's artwork. Dieringer has written for TIME Magazine's LightBox, TIME.com, INCITE Journal of Experimental Media, and in his professional capacity, he is the Technical Director at Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI).
