About the speakers:

Matthew Schreiber brings together mischievous humor and technical precision to create otherworldly spaces with laser installations and within holograms. His artworks induce powerful encounters with the potency and mystery of light.

Lindsay Packer plays with the call and response of color and light, form and site in photography, film and video, installations, and improvisational performance. With a spontaneous spirit and non-hierarchical approach to materials and process, she creates immersive environments that are integral to and inseparable from their architectural and sonic contexts.

Working with experimental film, live performance, installation, puppetry painting and holography Eric Leiser explores how animation transforms perception when it is brought together with the space of live action. His fantastical artworks have a surrealistic quality where light takes on crystalline properties.
