Nathaniel Stern at Greylock Arts

‘Arrested Time’ is an display of works combining contemporary technologies with traditional drawing and printmaking methods. This project, curated by Jo-Anne Green, brings together two exhibits – the solo work of Nathaniel Stern in ‘Given Time’ and this artist’s collaborative endeavour with Jessica Meuninck-Ganger ‘Distill Life.’ 

In ‘Given Time’ Stern simultaneously activates and performs two permanently logged-in Second Life avatars, each forever and only seen by and through the other. Viewers encounter this networked partnership as a diptych of large-scale and facing video projections in a real world gallery, both exhibiting a live view of one avatar, as perceived by the other. 

In ‘Distill Life’, Stern and Meuninck-Ganger approach both old and new media as form. They permanently mount translucent prints and drawings directly on top of video screens, creating moving images on paper. By incorporate technologies and aesthetics from traditional printmaking - including woodblock, silk screen, etching, lithography, photogravure etc - with the technologies and aesthetics of contemporary digital, video and networked art, they explore images as multidimensional.
