Sue Slagle (SUE-C) is an award-winning artist, engineer and educator whose work in “real time cinema” presents a new, imaginative perspective on live performance. Her evolution as a new media artist began in late-90s San Francisco where she was an influential member of the electronic music scene, owning the experimental record label Orthlorng Musork, organizing audio-visual cultural events and teaching the first creative coding classes in Max Software. After finishing her masters degree in engineering at UC Berkeley she moved to Oakland where she became co-owner of the Ego Park gallery and helped launch the First Friday art walks.
Her performances blend cinema and technology into an organic, improvisational and immersive act, created from live cameras, light pads and video algorithms. She has always pushed the boundaries of human-computer interaction, employing emerging technologies and inventing many of her own, both through performance and tinkering with hundreds of students in her well-established teaching practice.

Eli Neuman-Hammond is an artist based in Providence, RI. He uses sound, images, and objects to explore intimate, disavowed, and persistent relations between present and past. His work interrogates how people and spaces are receptive (and antagonistic) to particular histories by amplifying and removing material that’s present and intervening with additional materials. He engages listening–and perception more broadly–as an exercise of labor, pleasure, alienation, and play, out of which new ethics can emerge in relation to specific sites, objects, and people. There are stakes to when and how one listens. He borrows strategies from oral history to express the possibilities and limits of transmission and memory, and he uses simple speaker arrangements to subvert a naturalized technological order in which microphones are believed to neutrally capture “fields” of sound. Eli also makes landscape paintings. (@neumanhammond)
