Opening October 31st, 2014, and running until December 1st, 2014, Ark 3: The Workshop Scenarios, by IEA artists Torsten Zenas Burns and Darrin Martin, is on display at the Fosdick-Nelson Gallery at the School of Art and Design of the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University.

Ark 3: The Workshop Scenarios sees Burns and Martin working collaboratively with improvisational cosplay, creating speculative video installations that re-imagine educational practice and explore post-human fictions. Leading up to the opening, Burns and Martin collaborated with students enrolled in the School of Art and Design to shoot video in what would become one of the works in their show. Other works from their recent residency at Signal Culture in Owego, NY, and other previous work. Using unique methods for projecting videos, Burns and Martin’s presentation utilizes the very plastic balls used in their recent videos to add a sculptural element to their presentation. Additionally, on October 28th, Burns and Martin presented a screening of their collaborative video work in Holmes Auditorium spanning their time working together.

Below is a feature of some of their work from shooting videos during their residency for Ark 3: The Workshop Scenarios. More images, including documentation of the residency, are forthcoming:
